500ml bottle (as Gold Miner)
Gold, ice-cream float head. Sweetish light hoppy aroma. Rich malty taste - grainy and dry resiny hops. Well balanced, and a little nutty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Conditioned as Co-Op Gold Miner. Bright amber with white head. Nice looking beer, poured well. Spicy, coriander seed notes in the aroma and flavour with a sweetish malt base, perhaps a little too challenging for a long beer. The hops last the distance with a few honeyish and green nuances but just couldn’t lose the overwhelming peppery notes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. [thank you, Harrisoni]
Pours hazy orange with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma is lightly flowery, some grassy hops, and sweet pilsner and caramel malts. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet malty with a fair dose of piney hops. Rather simple, yet quite drinkable.
