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.

12oz can, purchased at Whole Foods. Purchased on a whim. Pours a clear, pale, golden-straw color; thin, fine-bubbled white head with light retention and solid lacing. Bland, stale aroma of paper/cardboard notes, a very light toastiness, and a vague gesture in the direction of citrus; nothing harsh, at least. Medium-light body; high carbonation; lively and crisp. Modest, lightly stale toasty maltiness at the core of things, along with some quiet mineral and citrus bitterness balancing things out; a solid carbonic bite; actually pretty nice to drink, and generally flawless, but thereís just not a whole lot here otherwise. The staleness detracts. Medium-length finish, with some lingering toast and light bitterness; some paperiness sticks here.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Can. Pretty horrible brew. Lots of corn and cardboard. It would be better if it just tasted like nothing. Instead, it tastes like crap. Re-Rate: As Goldmine Lager. Not as bad as the original Copper Bell that I had. Still not a great lager, but not nearly as horrible. Freshness might have been an issue with the first cans.

12oz can. Poured a clear, bubbly light golden color with a foamy, large white head. Aroma was light, malts, touch of lager yeast, pretty unremarkable beyond that. Flavor was non-offensive, mild sweet malts. Very drinkable, without any real sold negatives, this beer would certainly be a fine lawnmower beverage.

A new cheap beer available to me at Whole Foods. Good times! This is a pretty typical and rather good American lager. Crisp and dry w/ a nice herbal bitterness in the finish. This is light but not flavorless w/ a real nice cereal grain character. Probably I will pick up a twelve of this occasionally instead of my usual Schlitz, PBR or Old Style.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
pours clear light fold with white head. Nothing much going on with the aroma, faint grain, faint hop, nicely balanced for what it is. Flavor is same as aroma. Mouth feel is light and watery with high carbonation. Overall, pretty simple, easy drinking beer.

12oz canned August 24th 2010, not exactly fresh but this is a "fresh" delivery our distributor just sent us. Served cold in a nonic glass.

Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a one finger white head that leaves some lacing at first but diminishes to a wispy cap pretty quickly.

Aroma is sweet grains, corn, bread, and I swear to god Iím even picking up a hint of grassy and citrus hops. Good strength and a pleasant aroma for the style.

Flavor is sweet corn, grains, a touch of sulfur on the back end, pretty sweet too, particularly on the finish.

Mouthfeel is lightish although a bit syrupy and sticky for the style, prickly carbonation.

For $6.99 a 12-pack, this really isnít too bad considering its competition.

Chudwick (2092) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 6, 2011
can into a weisen glass for comedic value. light golden color with white head. light effervescence, Smells of rice and yeast. Metallic taste to it. Light everything: body, flavor, impression... Refreshing and aftertaste free. This is a very neutral beer; no character, no personality, nothing to make it stand out. Best value ever!

kidmartinek (3637) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2010
2 inch white head, pale clear yellow. Sweet, fermenting grain aroma. Bubbles are slow to rise. Taste is full of grain malt and a kiss of hops on the end. Full bodied for a pale lager.
