Not very exciting. not very sweet and the flavor is not very bold at all. Kind of a funny, metallic aftertaste though.

Batch 10072128, if that means anything to anyone. No date on the bottle, though. I'm guessing mine is quite different from some of the others listed. While this is far from excellent, IMO, it's not bad at all, and certainly not as bad as I was expecting. Pours a *really* pale yellow, as in almost white color with a tinge of yellow. Decent head that did okay and there was some decent lacing left down the glass. Smell isn't very strong, but malt with a touch of hops. Taste is also very mild. Definately has malt going on but it's not exactly complex. A bit of a malt aftertaste, albeit a small bit. Mouthfeel is quite full and thick, much more than I was expecting. Drinkability is definately good as I may grab a few more of these next time I'm at the store. I know I have a good source (for the time being), but after reading the other scores, I think if a future bottle had any dust on it I might skip it.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée à la SAQ du Complexe Desjardins. Dégustée le 4 mars 2010 (dimpled bug), date de production 18 juillet 2009. Bière blonde limpide pâle. Mousse beaucoup, col crémeux épais et persistant. Peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur qui rappelle le ginger ale. Goût de grain de maïs (fait penser à de l’eau dans laquelle on a fait tremper des grains), ainsi que de citron en finale. Désaltérante malgré qu’elle soit assez sucrée. Manque de corps, de caractère, ensemble un peu terne.

It was a long ago, don’t remember much... But in my memories, a really good pale lager. Hope to taste it again

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 Light amber colored body (for a Lager) with a decent white, foamy head of one finger and very good lacing. Has a weak, hoppy aroma that leads you to a very unexpected and inviting sweet honey, hops, malted barley flavor that is brilliantly smokey. Some more complex flavors are present in the aftertaste. Very good finish in this one... Consistency is a little watery, but not boring. A definitively different Lager. This one’s underated if you ask me and a doubly excellent tasting Lager.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Boring beer that barely tastes anything. The bitterness is a bit metallic wich is not especially nice.

Ah, the Legend of Zelta. Nice gold packaging even. I fought through all those dungeons and slayed the monsters with nothing but my sword, boomerang, and some well placed bombs. I even solved a few puzzles and got swords from weird old men. It's too bad the princess turned out to be a skunk.

Bière blonde de 5.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un dorat fruité. Belle finition en verre, léger col au versement, fort pétillante. Bon goût, douce, simple, agréable et rafraîchissante. Elle possède un aspect fruité, légère et succulente.

330ml from [email protected] Arsenals, Riga. (22.Dec.2012) Light yellow body with filmy layer on top. Mild hops and malt aroma, flowers and cookies, maybee some citrus notes? Most of all sweet. The taste of artificial acidic lemon overwhelms me. Too carbonated. Reminds most of all of a (bad) Russian lager, but then again there are many Russians living in Latvia...
