3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is from a bottle labeled simply "Gold Lager"
Pours a brilliantly clear rich gold, almost too copper, color and is topped by a frothy light tan colored head. The aroma is lightly spicy in a hoppy way and has notes of warm toasted malt biscuits underneath the hop notes. The taste is dry and spritzy up front, but then moves to a lightly sweet pale maltiness, with some toasty malt notes, that is accented by a spicy note of lemony hops. This beer has a solid bite in the finish that is a mix of carbonation and hop bitterness. This beer is a pleasant surprise, it is quite well made and I really like the good mix between spicy/ lemony hop notes and simple yet evident malt character. This beer is a perfect pre-dinner beer on a hot Tucson summer day.

Fruity aroma. First initial taste was corn. Tasted like an American Standard as in Budweiser. Was looking forward to trying this beer. Bland and boring. Not impressed.
