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 from linus_stick: pours a small cloudy but bright yellow straw colour with a large pure whtie faomy head. lots of tiny bubbles. aroma is light withsome graininess and very little sweet malt, hints of fossil fuels and very little hops. flavour has lots of grains and a bitter taste from a very small amount of floral hops, some corn like flavour and pretty watered down beer. not to good.

5/02/2008: The Church Brew Works Celestial Gold German Style Pilsner pours golden straw color with a foamy off-white (slightly yellowish) head. It has a mild level of visible carbonation an a sweet, grainy aroma that reminds me of sweet corn. The flavor is also quite grainy with a bit of watery grassiness. It seem quite "beer-y" and is extremely light on the palate. It is soft on the palate and has no finish. I nearly forgot that I was drinking a beer while I was drinking this one!

12 fl. oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating: 3/3/4/2/5=1.7

8/25/2009: Church Brew Celestial Gold... Aroma: LACKING; only a very slight hint of lemon. Appearance: Pale straw color, transparent. Flavor: Mild hops, balanced; flavorful palate cleanser; some weak lemon in the finish. Palate: Very light, but very refreshing and thirst-quenching. Overall: Nothing special, but still decent and better than the mass-market alternatives. Much better on draught at the brewery than from a bottle!

Draught at Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh, PA. Rating: 4/3/5/3/10=2.5

jercraigs (8509) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2008
2008-04-10. Pale yellow body with a good sized white head. (3+) Perplexing aroma, floral, lemon-honey is nice, but a hint of paint emerges later on after an ill fated swirl of the glass. Mild bitterness in the flavour, similar floral notes as in the aroma are not unpleasant but don’t particularly pull me in either. Average palate. Bottle courtesy of GregClow

Bottle (12oz). No ClowGr’s tasting, shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. Pale clear yellow, decent bright white head lasting head. Aroma of hay and tempura paint. Taste harsh weeds and cardboard. Light, sharply carbonated, harsh finish. No thanks.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled. Poured bright, milky golden with a short cap of fizzy white head. The aroma picked up sweet bready malts, honey, and corn accented by lemon-peppery notes.. soft overall and well-presented. The flavor had a sweet pale malty base surrounded be lemon zest and light medicinal notes.. sweet bread and honey on the short, fizzy finish.. aiight. Creamy, very full carbonation on the palate.. enough to interrupt the flow of the drink and make it a bit sharp.. drinkable overall, but nothing really good going for it.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
On draft at CBW. Poured pale gold in color with small white ring of head. Aroma of mild mild hops. Taste is of pale malts, mild hop bitterness, earthy. I have to say for a lager, I enjoyed the hops. Other then that, not my thing.

GregClow (2977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle. Pale gold with a small white head that disappears quickly. Grainy malt aroma with a slight vegetal note. Thin body with heavy carbonation. Sweet start to the flavour with an unpleasant undertone, like overcooked veggies, and an unbalanced bitterness in the finish. Not very good.
