Appearance: pours a 1" fluffy white head which recedes moderately. There is a moderate amount of lacing. Beer is a deep golden color with noticeable streaming carbonation. Aroma: roasted barley, corn husks, clean water and a bit of hop aroma. Mouthfeel: light and crisp. This brew goes down easily and finish is quite dry. Flavor: pleasant taste of toasted bread crust, a bit of buttery toffee, some corn sweetness. There is a mild hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Okay American beer. As good as or better than most mass produced American beers such as Bud, Miller, etc. And at a much lower price! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cabin fridge rate. Pours with just a slight haze to its gold body under a small fizzy white head that hung around a while, but didnít look all that natural as it laid there. The nose is pretty generic macro lager, mostly corn sweetness with not a whole lot else. Itís not especially offensive though, and thatís something at least. The flavor is a bit heavier than the ílightí beers Iíve had tonight, but that really just means more corn, so not sure thatís really a good quality. Finishes like it starts, sweet and a bit bland. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Would it kill these macro guys to throw in some hop to their lagers? Not something I could picture myself on a steady diet of, but for a night at the cabin, itíll do.

Extra Gold Lager has a thick, white, marshmallow-type head, a clear, deep gold, bubbly appearance, and lots of lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet & sour roasted barley malt and other grains. Taste is of sweet, funky grain, a touch of hops, and it has a moderate roastiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Extra Gold Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. Overall, this just might be the best American-style adjunct lager on the market! Oh, yeah! RJT

Kent Prrbek is really being annoying right now, so I think itís time to head to bold flavor town. Got this from trukpro, and man have I been looking forward to opening this! Can. Shimmering golden color with a small, fluffy, white head. Plenty of carbonation. Sweet aroma with corn, grains, and a slight grass character. A touch sweeter than Iíd like, but still pretty solid. The taste is where this is at. Bold grains, corn, and a touch of sweetness. Definitely worth getting a chance to try this. Pretty hefty carbonation. This would be a great summer beer, or just something you could drink a thousand of in a night.

You forget how bad these are after a while. I had it with a Bud to compare and they were both bad but this a little less bad. The pale color, stale aroma, sweet corn taste. Stick with the good stuff.

Not horrible, but not good either. I liked the caramel malt sweetness of the beer. As far as pale lagers go, itís average, but for being a mass produced beer it has itís value.
