3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 3/3/14, as Forty-Niner Gold Lager
Aroma: The aroma is light crystal malts, some grain, sweet malt, and hop notes as well
Appearance: This beer pours a clear golden color with a small, fizzy white head
Flavor: Light and clean, some fine, but not overwhelming sweetness, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light, with a decent enough feel, and a clean dry finish
I thought this was a solid enough example of the style. It isn’t a super exciting beer, but it has some flavor and it has a nice, clean, hop finish to it that makes it easily an above average example of this style.
