Brewing gold receives its unmistakable, fine-spicy taste by the balanced hop mixture. A complex brewing procedure gives it the noble-bitter character and a round, long lasting flavor experience.

Faint aroma. Decent malty taste, elegant, still not very special. Moderate bitter aftertaste.

Bif (1677) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2014
On tap. Served a pale golden color with a fair head. Aroma of malt sweetness, bit of citrus and grass. Taste of a light malt sweetness, grain and bit of citrus. Moderate bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, quite smooth with a clean feel. Not a bad beer went well with my dinner

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2013
The head is not robust, the body blond. It smells hoppy, bitter. The taste is mild, a bit bitter, watery. Overall a bit bitter but stil boring. 7/4/3/3/7/4

Bottle at Bindella, Zurich. Pours pale yellow. A light dry lager, easy on the hops

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Tap at Da Paolo in Geneva. Basic lager, decent golden colour, crisp and drinkable, mild hint of pilsener hopping. Not great but had a lot worse.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a clear golden beer. Unpleasant sulphury nose. Boiled vegetables, malt, metal, soy sauce, blood and marzipan in the taste. Surprisingly full bodied. Sweet. Low bitterness. The alcohol is rather present. White bread in the finish which is slightly hoppy and mainly sweet. Some residual sugars. Better than the average Eichhof beer.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 4, 2008
Eis uma cerveja absolutamente parecida com as "macros" brasileiras: Absolutamente AGUADA. Creme pouco denso e consistente. Paladar de água com leve toque de lúpulo. E só.

draft in Lucerne - Pours clear gold with a thin head. It has a light pale malt aroma and a similar flavor with some mild hops that are very typical of European lagers. I noted that it’s similar to Heineken but with a little more flavor from the malt. Not bad, not too good.

jimhilt (2465) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 26, 2007
From my notes 6/8/07 - Very similar to their lager - pours a two-finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Hoppy/skunky nose. Very good carbonation and light bodied. Flavor is hoppy with a hoppy finish. To me less desirable than the lager. S.FR.5.00 ($4.07) for a 300ml bottle at Grand Hotel Europe Lucerne, Switzerland.

Very crips with dry finish. No lingering after-taste. Golden with thin head. Some bitter notes, but they did not dominate the session.
