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.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense, frothy, ivory head that laces nicely. The haze is coming from tons of super-fine suspended sediment. The nose is a muted, yet straightforward, sweet graininess with just a touch of grassy/floral hops in the background. Light-bodied and thin with a slick mouthfeel, it reveals fine carbonation at the swallow along with just a touch of a metallic note at the crisp, clean finish. Mildly sweet, grainy malt again with a light metallic note at the quick finish. Not a bad pale lager. i could easily see myself putting away a few of these on a hot summer day. It’s worth trying, if not just to remind yourself that not all pale lagers are yellow fizz-water.

Tasted at Brewery. Very clean, light citrus, lightly hopped, crisp finish. Tastes like a home brew. A decent pale lager.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
Poured amber from the tap with a white head. Mildly bitter with the taste of hops. Couldn’t finish the sample. Not impressive at all for a previous medal winner.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2007
12 oz bottle via trade (thanks Hellbilly!). Pours a near crystal clear amber with a small white head. Nose is malty with a trace of honey. Taste is what you would expect from a good clean session lager, albeit a bit grainy. Not getting any hops in this.. Finish is watery. Body is light, carbonation is medium. A nice clean simple beer.

Tap at the restaurant. Nice golden color, dense white head. Mild citrus nose. good body...thick and slippery on teh palate. Good malt/hop balance with almost no bitterness. Very good and drinkable.

KUEric (922) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Labeld simply as ’Gold Lager’. Pours a light golden color, a little more orange/yellow than standard gold. A head from my agressive pour is minimal and disappears quickly. The aroma is of lemons, pine, and wood with a little bit of hops. The flavor is a little of apples, pee, a touch of hops. a quick hitting light palate.

One of the 7 Dwarves in the Oak Creek tasting set. Not much to it say: its a pale lager and it looks, smells and tastes like one - in other words, there isn’t much to see, smell or taste (especially in comparison to the other brews on the tasting platter). I’ll admit that it had more flavor and slightly more texture than a macro lager but that’s about it.

Taster in Sedona. Pale yellow, mild hop and malt flavors. What Budweiser wishes it was... Nice for the style...

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2003
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.
