COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schloss Gold is the best known of all Maxlrainer beers. The unique Maxlrainer brewing water, as well as the conscientious choice of the finest ingredients create its distinctive mild, wholehearted taste and its delightful freshness. The aging process, which lasts 4 to 6 weeks in the cool warehouse cellars of Schlossbrauerei Maxlrain contribute to the harmonious taste of the beer, which has been for many years awarded the gold DLG medallion.

Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, - JAN 7, 2013
Pale golden colour, medium head which was well retained, clear. Aroma was grass and malt. Slightly grainy, tasted notes of grass and honey, slight bitterness. Finish was wheaty. Mouthfull was crisp, well carbonated and smooth. Overall drinkable but more of an in your face Export than a subtle Helles.

One of the best tap beer i’ve tried. The bottled version is however quite disappointing. Fruity (citrus), malty, very well balanced with the perfect amount of hops to quench thirst!

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.5 l bottle shared with Marko and ogivlado. It poured a yellow to golden body with medium sized head. Weak lemony and chlorine watery aroma that might be also part of the Zagreb water. Flavor was lightly sweet grainy, hay and bready, lemon hop with a metallic off note. Medium body with longer sweetish grainy and a bit stale finish. Overall, okay after all said, but a bit boring.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle in my Berlin hotel room late on 22nd Jan 2016. Basic lager/pilsner/helles based golden beer with the usual attributes: clean, clear and bright, fading white crown almost odourless and tasteless, but refreshing. This one has a slightly more malty feel than hoppy, a decent blend but nothing to make it stand out from a very large crowd of similar beers.

ogivlado (7215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of heavy, shared with him and Marko. Yellow/golden coloured, medium sized white head, slightly grainy nose. Sweetish malty, dusty grainy, slightly herbal and whiff of corn with short finish. Usual and boring.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2016
Thanks heavy! Shared with him and ogivlado. Paaale goldenyellow body, tiny thick white head, somewhat lasting. Grainy appley aroma, pungent, meh. Sweet, slightly vegetabley, grainy slightly honeyish taste. The finish is slightly dull. The malty-hoppy notes create a vaguely cereally-fruity thing, on the sweet side, but, though OK enough, it’s not my thing. Slightly stale sugary note in the finish. Hm.

ciocanelu (1318) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 4, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear, bright yellow color with white head. Aroma has grains and a bit of bread and honey notes. Taste is really nice for a lager. Slightly sweet and grainy with bread crust and honey notes. No real hop presence. Body is quite heavy for the style and also smooth. Really nice beer overall if you like a slightly sweet lager.

From bottle bought in Bad Aibling. Very nice. Smooth, light, and refreshing. Very much like a Helles. Perfect with my pizza and a great hot weather style.
