This is an extremely pale Pale Lager. The aroma is sweetness and metallica. Actually doesn’t taste too bad, a sweet bready malt with a hint of grassy hops. The finish is an almost granular sugar sweet and coats the mouth with a tinny taste. Still, better than most BMCs.

Canned. Golden colour with minor white head. It has a seet and malty aroma. The flavour contains a strong taste of malt, kinda sweet with a bitter finish.

Mine was labeled Zelta Gold. This really coats your moth and leaves a not good feeling. Really not good. Ick.

Pours a medium golden yellow. Aromas of grains/corn and some hint of hops. Flavor is better than most the other eastern european lagers I’ve had.

Geiserich (4545) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 28, 2005
Fresh unspectacular aroma. Golden color. Ligth must flavor, apple notes, light grainy. Dry, astringent finish. Weak but o.k.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Medium-gold with a continual stream of bubbles rising towards the paper-thin head. Aromas and flavours work in unison, offering a solid dose of malt and confectionery sugar. The round malt flavour even holds out on the medium-length finish. Quite nice.

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!

Medium gold body that is slightly hazy. A white head on top. The aroma has celery and carrots. There is also a note of tangy citrus. The taste is very sweet with corn and some carrots. There is also a light finish of green bell peppers. Needs more hops to balance the sweet body.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Pours a cloudy light golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma is biscuit, bready yeast with flowery hops. This is intriguing... Taste starts mildly sweet with pleasant bitterness. This beer has enjoyable qualities that are hard to describe. Light bodied with medium carbonation. My favorite pale lager thus far. Perhaps in Latvia the best selling beer also tastes good. What a novel concept.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Bottle (500ml). Poured clear gold with a decent sized soapy white head. Very vegetal-grainy, but not too sour, not to corny - it’s even a bit perfumy and there is a grassy hop aroma too. Taste is a bit lemony, sweet but not malty, and fresh-cut clover. Light but okay. Not much going on palate-wise. Incredibly quick finish and no aftertaste. Easy to drink, not offensive - beats many generic euro/pale lagers.
