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.

Can from the Folsom Whole Foods. Pours gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bready and very lightly grassy. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready, herby/grassy, and sort of gummy/paperish towards the end. Meh!

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
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.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Can at Sander’s in NYC. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Aroma has lots of simple cereal, grains, sugary bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with further cereal grains, mellow bitter hay, sugar. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, lightly bready finish, more sugary cereal, hay. Very basic but easy to drink.

daknole (8948) - 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.

GT2 (8284) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
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?

Drake (8030) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2012
12oz can courtesy of drake: pours a clear pale golden with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Has a dry lightly skunked grassy nose with a touch of honey. Starts with decent fullness and mild grainy malty sweetness with a decent balance of bittering hops before a fairly clean finish. Aroma is off-putting, but once you get past it, this is fairly drinkable.

crossovert (7020) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
Whole Food’s PBR clone that they sell as a brand name. It is like any other cheaply produced adjunct lager.
