Muggus69 (1260) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES JAN 5, 2004 Very light malt aroma. Pours golden with a quick to disappear head. Not much flavour at all. Kind of a honey tinge with a slight bitter hint at the end. Nothing outstanding about this lager.

kiwianer (3361) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 7, 2014
The head is medium, the body blond. It smells malty, bit flowery, sweet. The taste is malty, flowery, thin and boring. 2.6

StuffWine (131) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2014
Poured clear dark amber with good white head. Aroma quite faint of light grains and only slight hint of hops. Taste is sour grains and not much else. Light bodied, slightly oily mouth-feel, short finish. Whar fruit whar?

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2014
Golden lager is definitely a marketing term. This is just your average run of the mill pale lager with a VERY slight fruity flavour.

chinchill (2055) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Greymouth, NZ Excellent clarity in this golden-amber ale. The aroma is quite light, perhaps even for style. The flavor is initially just as expected for a golden lager, but this beer has an appealing, and surprisingly malty finish. Well-crafted and balanced, as well as very fresh (of course). Feel: Light body with medium-high, very crisp carbonation. Clean, dry finish. O: recommended as a somewhat malty golden lager.

MichaelAwesome (4447) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2013
Not a bad one but still not impressive. Some apples with a bit of a hoppy background and some dust. Just missing a bit too be awesome.

Idiosynkrasie (4020) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Cautious grainy and strawy aroma, hints of corn. Taste is rather expressionless, minimally grainy, soapy, strawy; one-dimensional, monotonous.
