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.

Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Drake! Clear yellow pour, pretty fizzy white head. Wanted this as it was 90+ today, seemed like a good day for it. Aroma brought notes of wet grain, corn, slight fusels, hints of hay, spicy notes, some slight pineapple. Taste is sweet corn, grain and hay notes, slight spice and more grain, slight fruit, finishing bitter, clean. Some off and adjunct notes in here for sure.

12oz can thanks to Drake. Pours a clear straw, larger forced carbonation. Medium, suddy soap foam. Little to no lace. Nose is sugar cube and canned pineapple. Taste is sweet, sugar cube, canned pineapple, small soap. Not gross, but why not just drink Bud Light?

It’s a smooth and crisp taste. It’s refreshing and doesn’t overwhelm the senses. Mmmm.

Pours clear yellow-orange with about two fingers of stark while rapidly dissipating head. Grass is prominent in the odor. Taste is a little light sweetness, starts off soft and then goes to a slight banana taste that generally is dominated by the typical lager sickly sweetness. Not a great lager, but not a bad lager either. Fairly middling for a sub-par style.

PorterPounder (5593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 12 oz can. Medium gold appearance, light white head. Pretty much a neutral aroma, brief traces of wet paper bag. Flavor is bland, but not offensive. Some grassy notes, a hit of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel - just a tad bit of tinniness. Much better than the Copper Bell Light I just had.

ronaldtheriot (1279) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Copper Bell has a very thick, soapy, stark-white head with a decent amount of thick lacing and a mostly clear yellow-golden appearance, with a presence of fine particulate matter. The aroma is of sweet, wet hay and grain, and the flavor is of barley, grain, a dash of hops, and there is some bite to it. Mouthfeel is very light and watery, and Copper Bell finishes fairly crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. For someone on a tight budget, it’s okay, otherwise it’s only average. RJT.

Surprisingly heady. Very pale yellow. This is actually a bit funkier and less tasty than the light.

Pershing (477) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Pours pale yellow with a decent white head. Flower aroma with some malt. Thin mouthfeel with a fair amount of carbonation.. Clean smooth finish. Much better than the macros out there. Excellent session brew.

At just under eight bucks a 12 pack at Whole Foods Market, I really wasn’t expecting too much. I could tell from the carton that it was brewed in Rochester, NY, so I assumed it was by Genesee, only under another name - aka brewed under license. Beer poured a nice, sparkling clean yellow with a nice head that lasted pretty much to the bottom of the glass. Fairly good malt, hop aroma, with a slight honey background to it. Nice flavor, suprisingly clean without a sour note, sourishness being something ordinarily present in inexpensive beers. If you’re expecting a quality beer to compete with the finest European lagers when you buy this, then you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you’re thinking it’ll be like a Pabst, Milwaukee’s Best, or a Bud, then you’ll probably be pleased. I found this beer worthy to try again.
