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.

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.

Tap as part of seven dwarves flight. Pours golden with fluffy white head. Not much aromas to speak of. Tastes of hay, regular grass, citrus, vanilla, and hops. Pretty boring gold lager billed as 49er on menu fyi

It was a nice, soft translucent gold color with an excellent head and great carbonation. The way they brew their beers at the grill, known as "spunding," is meant to create finer bubbles for a smoother taste, and it works deliciously. The beer carries a very light, clean, grassy scent with a complete lack of hops or any bitterness, which also carried over to the flavor. It was much more malty and slightly sweet in my mouth than under my nose, with a little bit of caramel and honey hiding in the undertones. --- The Gold Lager was extremely smooth and crisp with a dry mouthfeel afterwards, leaving barely any aftertaste. It is considered a medium body and keeps everything together perfectly. It may be seen as a simpler beer, but it was a great companion to my beer-battered fish and seasoned waffle fries, allowing room for me to taste my food rather than try to clean my palate afterward. --- I wish I had more to say about this brew, but the fact of the matter is that it is a wonderfully simple beer with a great, easy combination of flavors and scents. Delicious with fish or lighter appetizers, but I’m sure in the hot Arizona summers, it would fit with anything and even be able to hold its own when enjoyed by itself. Yes, yes and yes! Keep up the great work, Oak Creek, I can’t wait to come back and visit for another taste.
