COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Gold medal winner in the 2002 North American Brewers' Association competition, this richly gold-colored lager beer has a crisp hop note. It maintains its zest and balance of hops and malt from start to finish. It is a cold lagered and naturally carbonatedall-malt beer. It is very versatile beer that can be enjoyed alone or with nearly any type of food.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2014
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
Overall Impression: 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.

On tap at the brewpub. A clear golden one with a small white head. Pale malts and hay on the rather weak and boring nose. Dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, with biscuits, pale malts and some grass and bitterness. Short finish. Quenching and boring. 130818

Draft @ Oak creek. Clear yellow with a pure white head. Aroma of bready malt, corn and some herbal/spicy hops. Flavor is very cleanly fermented with more bready malt and light hop bitterness. Light body with active carbonation. Great beer for what it is, very clean and refreshing.
