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.

Ernest (6216) - 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 (253) - 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. It’s not that flavourful, but it’s a decent pale lager.

Drake (8536) - 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 (9099) - 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 doesn’t mean its good.

I don’t really like lager so I’m not too shocked that I didn’t like this one. To me it tasted like every other run of the mill lager I’ve ever had. It wasn’t any worse but not really any better. It’s only $7.99 for a 12-pack so you can’t really expect much more than what you get for this one. If you like cheap lager (like Budweiser, etc.) then you’ll probably enjoy this.

Palidor19 (2946) - 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.

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.
