This beer is golden in color with a light bubbly effervescence. The light body makes this lager beer appropriate for a business lunch or your evening sipping beer. The light malt flavor also accentuates the hop flavor. From the start, you will notice a fine hop aroma. As you sip the Celestial Gold, the subdued maltiness blends with a slight hop flavor. When this beer finishes, you will notice a pleasant hop bitterness. The bitterness will be mild and quite appropriate.

Bottle pours a clear, bright golden with a white head that doesn’t last long. Aromas are light, but there are few adversities, rather faint pale malt and wee German hopping. An easy drinker, the body is smooth with a lightly carbonated lift. Flavor finds a steadfast herbal bitterness which stands firm before lightly sweetened malts and lingers long on the roof of the mouth. I hate to say it, but I have to agree with Cheapdark below who states that this is miscategorized as a "Pale Lager" and should probably be relegated to the "Pilsener" family.

On tap at the brewery, bright yellow gold color, with almost no had, light pale malt nose, faint floral hop aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a crisp pale malt, citrus floral hop accent, leading towards a dry bitter hop finish.

Bottle from Capone’s. Gold pour with off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, slight hops and fruit. Tastes pale malty with slight hopcit, honey, and apricot notes. Watery palate without a great deal of complexity, this one missed the mark for me.

Not impressed or honored with the fact that CBW has converted an alter to a brewing stand. Also, I am surprised that this is considered a pale lager. It is more like a german pilsner. 12 oz brown bottle. Pours like a slightly darker, but not much darker, pale yellow american beer. Aroma is clean and crisp. It possesses a hoppy aroma absent from most pale lagers. There is no head but the aroma is nice. Hoppy flavor, but no overwhelming like a pale ale or IPA. The hop flavor is pleasantly there but it is not backed by the severe bitterness that lingers. Nice carbonation that tingles the back of your tongue as it rolls down your throat. As you drink it there is a building hoppy accent in your mouth. Nice hoppy aroma in the smell continues. Finish leaves you with a medium bitter personality that lingers for a while. Would never think this is a typical pale yellow american lager....too much personality. Must be in the wrong category.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with lukin013 (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grain and a light lemony citrus. Tastes follow. Thinner body.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2006
On tap @ the Church Brew Works. Super clear yellow with white head. Aroma is malt and skunk. Flavor is the same. This beer is a wheaty version of Stella Artois.

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Sample at the brewpub. Pale golden color with a compact white head with fair retention. Minimal lacing. Light hops and nuts in the aroma. Light body with a clean mouthfeel, and mild but flavorful hops taste. There is a bit of grass and malt in there too. The finish is effervescent and lightly bitter. Pretty good for the style.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Nice bready aroma. Clear, medium light yellow gold with no head. Initially a lightly candied, slight citrus presentation, then it rounds out to a medium light bittering. Medium mouth -- not too fizzy. Initial finish is sweet, then a lingering bitterness. Fair. Good for a brewpub light lager offering.

Pours a slightly hazy bubbly gold color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is kinda sweet maltiness but no real distinguishing characteristics. Flavor is light and crisp with a nice slight hop bitterness. Sweet flavor. Overall, damn good pale lager.
