COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
work hard to brew the best beer around. The news has already spread — drinking Goldmine is a richly rewarding experience.

NOTE: This is the same beer as Copper Bell Lager, renamed due to legal action from Bell’s. Brewed for Whole Foods Market.

Can to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells doughy and a little skunky (but not in a bad way). Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad for what it is.

1/24/13. 12oz can from Whole Foods. $3.49 a six-pack. YES! Drank from the can like a real man. Seems like it would be golden and fizzy. Old corn and a weird gross sour aspect... somewhere between apples, garbage, and stomach acid. Slightly sweet corny entry with another big kick of that weird acidy/garbagey sourness. Ugh.

trapped (788) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 7, 2013
Can. Very pale yellow colour, small foamy white head, vanilla aroma, sweetish taste with a hint of citrus, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Very light pale lager, what else can I say...

12oz can 12/31/12 (Whole Foods-Naperville)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, hops, and malt. Taste of the same with some more sweetness. This light bodied brew is not bad nor good. I was expecting worse.

Goldmine Lager (can, gold in color. Pour is predictably light, grainy on aroma, I suppose a bit more complexity than most commercial lagers. Body a bit heftier than its colleagues, flavor more pronounced, though neither offensive nor desirable. Nothing here of interest except the relatively cheap price and the alcohol.

12oz can. Pours clear golden yellow, stiff white head. Aroma of grain. Taste is slightly sweet grain. Not a good beer, but one of the best cheap beers in the US right now at $3/6

Bottle: The aroma consists of light apple, honey, grain, and grass. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of apple. The finish has some light honey sweetness with light grass. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.
