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.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2008
Decent hop aroma, minty character I’ve noticed with this brewer. Dry, a little watery, some cirtus, some alcohol. Lawnmower beer, not much more.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2008
12oz Bottle. A little overcarbonated and foamy for a pils. Four or five fingers of crisp, pillowy white head hangs above a furious inch of lightly hazed deep gold. Aroma is composed of blended straight malt and metallic hops. Rather classic and relatively clean. A few interesting yeast and alcohol notes create the sense of sugar complexity. Flavor is a mish-mash of well developed malt flavor, rich in toothy breads, and lemony sugars, followed by some dusty hop nuance and a kiss of alcohol sugars. Ever so slightly metallic. A nip sweet. Interesting beer. Decently flavored, but a bit of a mess. Worth a try and nice to drink. Finally, a crisp, gummy hop juice provides a nicely flavored balance in the backend.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Rerate at brewpub - Pale golden pour. The nose is soft and earthy. Floral aroma with a very light straw flavour and character. Fresh and well-balanced. A touch of grassiness behind the fresh malt base. Soft and chewy with a nice linger floral hop flavour. Pretty nice really. Pale straw-golden colour. Aroma is lightly earthy and citrusy. It’s got a very flinty and leathery character to the malts. It’s pretty infected with a wild mustiness. Dusty and bone dry. Meh. 5 3 6 2 11

unclemike (2870) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Thin head that has to fight to form. Reduces quickly to nothing. Low carbonation. Light malts, corn flakes, little floral and a little lavender. Color is a light gold. Flavor is soft with a little malt and hops. Light hops bitterness at the finish and a little dry. A decent pale lager but nothing special. Good for a hot night

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
