COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: Slightly skunky grassy aroma with a lttle hint of malt to redeem itself. Flavor was ... ehh... a bit of malt, with a lot more of the grassy notes in the finish. Not a favorite.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Enjoyed via draft in a pub glass. The beer pours a straw-colored to medium golden hue, with a medium white head. Carbonation is accurate for the style, and markedly less than the American and European standard and premium lagers. The nose is rather slight, but does give a nice hint of German character malts, with a nice nod to Munich malt, in particular. The palate is a touch thin, but not out of character, for the style. Malt character up front: pils, Munich, and perhaps a touch of Vienna, before a nice, firm bitterness via continental hops. The finish is clean, slightly bitter, and semi-dry. Overall, this is a well-made example of the style. It is truly a shame that so many ratebeerians do not have a full comprehension of the BJCP style guidelines, and rate beers soley on their alcohol content, their IBUs, or whether they have been aged in oak.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A sweet grainy nose, light honey. A smooth and tasty flavor; grainy earthy malts, light honey and a touch of bitter hops. Nice and easy.

JaBier (4834) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sample at CBW. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Creamy malt aroma that makes me think it contains corn, also some light and crisp hop. Flavor is crisp hop up front with creamy and sweet malt in the middle before a thin dry finish.

Tap @ brewpub: Pale gold with a skunky grain aroma with a similar taste. Yuck.

This one poured a clear pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of corn adjuncts grassy and a little sweet. Flavor was corn, bready, sweet and a bit grassy. Decent for a lager, but not good.

On tap at the Church. Pale golden with little head. Mild hop aroma. Crisp palate, mellow malt with mild hoppiness. Typical lager, not bad but not amazing.

Poured into a pint glass, this pilsner barely foamed at all, leaving only a crown of head and no lacing. bubbles of carbonation continue to rise through this very light golden brew. Smells quite interesting for a pils. Not your usual bland smell, maybe a touch hoppier than I was expecting. Taste is ..hm. I think non offensive is the best way to put it, perhaps to a fault. A tad on the watery side. Starts off smooth and ends with a fun little bitter crisp, but I would like a little more to it. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is at a good level. No complaints here. Drinkability is good, I could pound these or sip them at a social level. That said, I would likely not try this one again.

On tap in Church- Poured a light gold with small white head. This had a wheat grain body with a slight bitterness, bit of a dry finish.

Brewed in the USA..... On tap at the Brew Works !!! Pours a golden color with a small white head. Aroma of malts, grains, yeast and floral notes. Taste of malts, lemons, bread and a slight chalky flavor. Mouthfeel is kind of dry !! where is the hop bitterness? Not sure, but still was pretty drinkable.
