COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Gold is a premium lager with a rich and full-bodied taste. The valuable malt delivered from Scotland gives it a deep golden colour and a thick head. The taste and appearance of A. Le Coq Imperial Gold are as worthy of royal attention today as they ever were.

suurjuust (1221) - ESTONIA - APR 3, 2013
Gold, medium white head. Weak malty aroma with watery notes. Watery taste with weirdly oily slightly sweet malt in the finish. Thin body verging on medium in the finish, strange oily hints also in the finish, lively carbonation. Very forgettable.

Kita (1194) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle, 0.40l. Clear deep golden color with rocky white head, excellent lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma is reach malty, caramelly, grassy, herbal and a bit dusty. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, lightly toasted and bready. Following is mild grassy sour and somewhat fruity, while finish is light bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Surprisingly tasty lager...

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2013
Fancy new 400 ml bottle. Golden body, medium head. Aroma has simple barley and lager yeast. Sweetish taste of white bread. Quite full body. Finish turns "muddy" - it’s either from some strange hops or alcohol that is not well covered. Either way it’s not crisp and sessionable. More sweet malt in the finish.

martjoobolut (939) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2014
0,4L bottle, BB 29.08.2014. Pours clear golden with small white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, grain, and malt. Taste: is sweet with some bitterness in the back, watery, and malt. Finish has some bitterness. Overall: as far as macro lagers go, this is not that bad.

BelgiskOlklub (921) - Viby J, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014

MarkoNm (765) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours a clean golden color, topped with a very generous white frothy head. Solid retention. Lots of bubbles in there. A mild malty aroma, some dust, grains and a bit more grass. A bit unpleasant cardboard smell too. The taste starts slightly sweet. Balance in the body and little bitterness in the finish. Not the best one, but still good.

Vells (744) - Riga, LATVIA - JUN 1, 2013
Clear golden with medium white OK stable head. Lacing weird but nice. Aroma.. standard lager hops, ok malts, bit cornish Sweetish with light bitter finish. OK balanced As I was thirsty both times when I used this as thirst quencher, I can say that for this purpose it served well. No unpleasant aspects.. drinkable quite boring brew
