Poured a clear, straw like color with a finger width white head that ran away and left no lacing. Creamed corn smell, hint of alcohol or boozy smell. Creamed corn perceived again, straw, a bit of graininess, no hop presence. Light bodied, highly carbonated. Pretty drinkable I suppose, it goes down pretty easy, but it’s just not that great.

Nice and golden. That is all it has going for it. Must be a marketing ploy - there is no flavor to go along with the name.

Bottle, with week old born on date. Typical macro pale ale. Tase of corn, grass, and a yeast/sublte hop finish.
Not bad, but, would expect more from the Mich name.

Golden = water, for some reason. Here’s a good example of calling something a name that sounds better to get people to buy it, when it’s the same old junk.

From tap. Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is grassy and bubblegum. Flavour is domiinated by the same yeasty bubblegum, not much else. Decent balance between sweet and dry.

Not much different than any other cheap pale lager. Golden means watery for american pale lagers in my book and this is the same

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a twist-off 12 oz. clear glass bottle with an "Born On Date" on the neck label, sampled at a cool cellar temperature in a lager glass. This comes in a non returnable bottle, which I think is a terrible idea and bad marketing. I wouldn’t have bought this had I known.
Poured a clear pale yellowish lager golden with a nice frothy, foamy bright white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
A pretty clean nose, light sweet grain bready and musty hops, I didn’t detect any corn, more rice in the sweet neutrality of the malts.
Good carbonation, not overly fizzy, which I appreciate, and a softly crisp, dryish, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
Pretty bland tasting, sweet neutral pale malts, rice plays a big part here, a subtle lemon honey fruitiness, overall the hops are soft, just the barest hints of spiciness, and a dry sweet rice malty finish, a little sweet lemony flavor lingering in the palate.
Not awful, far from good, just your basic, predictable macro lager, only buy if it is on sale.

Is a very fine beer very smooth. The color is a bit parochial of large american brews, but that aside, this goes down wonderfully.
