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.

hens (500) - 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.

ectuohy27 (544) - 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 (2890) - Sønderborg, 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 (969) - - JUN 15, 2014
Clear golden beer, tiny head that goes away fast. Some hops in aroma. Flavor is malt, spicy hops. Not bad.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2014
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a bitter finish.
