Golden color with a thin white head. Kind of sweet with a dry finish. OK for a cheap beer.

Has a light golden color. Smell is mild, some grains. Taste is also mild, some corn and grains, not paticularly pleasant. Overall a beer best avoided.

12oz can-pours yellow with a foamy offwhite head. Aroma is grain, some spice. Taste is sweet grain, some spice hops.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 12 oz bottle pours deep golden color with a white head. Typical lager beer malt and grains. Not much else

PRUCK (19) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2011
this tastes exactly like coors only a little bit shittier. it has that coors breadiness flavour, but with more ícharacterí (or is that bullshit?). there really isnít anything wrong with this beer, but that doesnít mean that thereís everything awesome about it either. itís okay for drinking a lot of. but if extra gold is to coors as busch is to budweiser, then busch is WAAYYYY motherfucking better. no real reason to buy this unless itís a sweet deal on a DIRTY THIRTY.

From the can at GABF. For shits and giggles. Pours extra gold with some head. Nose is sweet and grainy. Really seems akin to a malt liquor. Sweet on the palate and not really pleasant. Scroll past.

This is not a good beer. Itís smells sweet. Pours deep golden lager yellow. Tastes very bitter. Leaves an awful after taste. I expected more from coors. .... Maybe I had a bad batch

So I have a sweet spot for Extra gold. Itís no longer available in the UK and indeed isnít available in Taiwan ( where I now reside) . But I really used to enjoy a pint of this. Grain and corn are very apparent and itís nice and sweet. Great summer beer.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Can given to me by a friend who swears itís the best macro lager available. And while we both realize thatís not saying much, I canít help but be intrigued. Clear gold pour with a huge off-white head. Nose of grainy malt, lager yeast and crisp hops. Sweet and grainy malt flavor with crisp hops in the finish. Not knocking my socks off and certainly not my style, but definitely better than others of the style.

Tastes similar to Old Style, it has a decent roasted malt/husky flavor to it. Not bad for a macro.
