Clear gold with a white head. Aroma corn and alcohol(?). Taste is quite sweet corny malts with alcohol and light hops. I dunno why I am tasting so much alcohol in a 5.2% beer, but it drops the rating.

Tap, Riga... A terrible, headache inducing pint. Truly awful chemical taste, I can only imagine that the pipes hadn’t been cleaned correctly...

Can. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of corn, grains, sugar and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some yellow apples and grains. Thin body, average carbonation.

Clear pale gold. Soft, fluffy snow white head. Strong cooked corn stench. Thin, fizzy feel. Bland, sweet honey-ish malt flavour w/ notes of cooked corn & diesel fuel. Somewhat harsh mineral bitterness in finish.

Poured the color of a typical macro..but more head. Sadly, it disappeared quickly again looking like a macro with zero lacing. Almost no aroma but I got a weird hint of mustard. Slight fruity malt taste. Not much going on here. Only slightly better than an American macro.

This stuff is not bad, sort of like Warsteiner, in the consistency of drinking a loaf of bread, very doughy with lots of adjuncts.

Vighals (956) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2014
Lys brun klar med tynt hvitt skum. Malt, syrlig sitrus og kornlukt. Smaker vann med kullsyre som det har ligget noen sitronbåter i.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Zelta Gold, says the label, brewed by Aldaris, pride of Latvia. Pale yellow coloration, clear, slimmish white head, leaving some lace...eh, rather regular... ...aroma? skunkitty-skunk! Flat, to putrid...foul...not nice...searching, searching...nope, not good... Taste (if I dare!)...not that great...grainy, but very limp...not horrible, but very wan, very ugh, very hoo-daddy, that ain’t so hot! Faint body, no finish, just a mess, me no like... ...their porter’s good, though!

Bottle. Pours clear yellow body. Aroma is skunk. Taste is totally offensive. Really horrible.
