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.

0,5l can. Light aroma, very little hops there. Some bitterness on tongue, aftertaste stays for some time but i sense water there.

halapablo (79) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 14, 2014
butelka. jedno z najlepszych piw z Estonii jakie piłem. dobrze zbalansowana gorycz ze słodyczą, smaczne i trafiło w mój gust. Kolor trochę za jasny a piana słaba i krótko się utrzymująca ale to nie jest najważniejsze.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle, 4.8%. Dusty aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Small stable chalk white head. The flavour is malty and spicy. Good spicy hop flavour, albeit a little watery.

sharkydodson (207) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUN 5, 2014
the aroma is grainy with light hoppy notes... the taste is rather rough with noticeable hoppy bitterness and shades of buckwheat and flowers... aftertaste is bitter...

hens (528) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2013
0,4L bottle. Nice clear golden color with nice permanent tiny hat. Usual hop, yeast aroma. On taste gives note some spicy flavor. Ginger, lime. Enough of hops carbonating. Finish is bit light, but OK. Normal beer.

mikkellund42 (551) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is malty, grass, flowers, corn and faint hints of incense. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, light umami and light acidic. Body is milky with lively carbonation. Finish is long and dry with notes of malt, grass, grain, flowers, meadow, hay, straw and faint hints of ground coffee and dark chocolate. Fairly complex for a pilsner and well balanced.

ectuohy27 (600) - ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2013
Thin palate, watery, sweeter-malt finish than the usual for this brewery; strongly suspect that this is a relabeling of A. Le Coq Imperial Gold, also brewed at 4.8% abv at Tartu.
Earlier Rating: 5/1/2013 Total Score: 2.9
Slightly improved regular A.Le Coq in a fancy undersized (13.5 oz as opposed to the normal 16.9) bottle, this has the thin palate and wateriness of its brandmates, with a significantly mproved sweet-malt finish

Bamsen78 (3141) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy whit head leaving lace patterns on the glass. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with malty notes. Bitter, hoppy aroma, enhanced by some kind of spice. Bitter, slightly metallic aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special. Still, a reasonable Pale Lager.

HopfenWeisse (1050) - - JUN 15, 2014
Clear golden beer, tiny head that goes away fast. Some hops in aroma. Flavor is malt, spicy hops. Not bad.
