COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and refreshing, Max Gold is a classic Pilsner style lager that has a medium body and a beautiful gold color. Its slight malt sweetness gives way to a complex hop finish, created by a blend of Tradition and Saaz hops.

Some servers at the brewpub will aim you toward this as Maxís lightest offering - making one think maybe this "Gold" is a "training" beer. Donít be fooled! If you love a HOPPY as hell PILSNER, the current version on tap now is one of the best Iíve ever had. YES...it rivals Victory Prima Pils- Huge aroma, delicious hop flavors - fantastic! Now is the time to try this beer again.

Tap at brewpub. Appearance is gold with a nice white head. Aroma of floral hops, light grain aroma as well. Taste is moderately hopped, and very crisp and fresh tasting. Light bitter finish. Body was light and lively. Overall, a decent pils.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Draft at pub. Pale gold, decent head. Pleasant floral hop aroma. Some diacetyl in the flavor, over a crackery pils malt, bitter finish. Lacked the promise of the nose. As it warmed, the faintest note of infection became present as well. Too bad, as that is probably what was muting some of the flavor hops along with the diacetyl.

ChainGangGuy (4354) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Appearance: Served up a clear, yellow body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Max Gold is sweetish and spicy on the nose, with hints from the light pale malts and spicy, floral hops utilized. Taste: Sweet, lightly grainy malts impart a small hint of honey. Particularly spicy Noble hops with a medium-light (though perhaps not quite the purported 40 IBUís listed) bitterness. Drying finish with a light, lingering spiciness. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Lightly carbonated. Drinkability: A self-described Bohemian Pilsner, it suffers from a case of undercarbonation. Instead of even reasonably crisp, it falls flat and flabby on the tongue.

Location: On tap at the downtown Atlanta location 4/16/09

Overall Impression: Found this one to be an accurate example of a style that is usually pretty boring. I didnít enjoy this one much at all. Itís a drop better then most of the macros, and thatís about it.
