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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

Sampled at Dan’s after Top of the Hops tasting. Clear pale yellow pour with ring of white head. Corny, grainy, little sweet malt. Almost no hops. Very drinkable though. Good for a bmc substitute.

12 oz can Purchased at Whole Foods. This is a typical pale lager in a can. The lager poured a clear shiny gold color. The head was a white frothy foam with lacing. This lager has a nice crisp taste with a mild sweetness. The carbonation was soft and the finish smooth with no bitter aftertaste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The pour is a pale yellow/straw color with a soapy white head. Heavy on the straw notes, a bit of water, and wet paper. Some apple, corn sugar, and a bit of chlorine/bleach. The flavor is quite watery. A bit of grain sweetness, some straw, and some apple. Not really much redeeming going on here.

Thanks drake! Floral, perfume-y nose, lightly fruity yeast. The malt is doughy and sweet with a bit of honey and ripe pear. Hopping is not noticeable. Thin body.
