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

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

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Can. Head is initially average sized, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of DMS and metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Whole Foods Swillager? Why?

Stellaaaa (252) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours a clear yellow with a thin, white head. It has a clean aroma of fresh pilsner malt. The taste, likewise, is of clean pilsner malt. Itís not that flavourful, but itís a decent pale lager.

Drake (8297) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
12 ounce can from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA on 6/7/11. Pours a pale golden color with a large creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malts and grassy hops. The taste is grassy hops with a sweet malty finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Pale yellow, with a white head. Corn, dank hops, bicsuits. Flavor is bready, grainy, light hops. Ive had worse, but it still doesnít mean its good.

I donít really like lager so Iím not too shocked that I didnít like this one. To me it tasted like every other run of the mill lager Iíve ever had. It wasnít any worse but not really any better. Itís only $7.99 for a 12-pack so you canít really expect much more than what you get for this one. If you like cheap lager (like Budweiser, etc.) then youíll probably enjoy this.

Palidor19 (2931) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2011
as expected, too much corn and adjuncts. taste to strong on the malt front that will go skunky if not drunk cold and quick. the hops are barley noticeable. cheap and effective.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2011
I certainly have had worse. Pours light straw with watered notes of light hop and corn style malts.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Nothing offensive about this beer and nothing remarkable. Little aroma and taste. I would best compare this beer to one of the macro lagers. I paid $6.99 for a 12 pack.

nick76 (4212) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2011
The aroma is rather weak and slightly dirty and metallic with corn like malt and grassy hops. The appearance is actually good for the style with a large foamy head and pale gold color. The taste is not that pleasant but not disgusting either. It falls into that "there is nothing here category." The palate is thin but right for the style. Overall not quite a drain pour but not worth wasting my calories/brain cells on.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Whole Foods Market, DC 12-pack ($6): Pours a standard pale lager color and head. Aroma is pretty clean, which is what you really want from a pale lager. Taste has no real downsides. It is like a cheap macro lager without most of the bad stuff. I think it is better than most pale lagers, although the only reason I got this was because I was going to a music festival where bottles were not permitted. Cheap too!
