Dark gold pour with large white head. Nose of sweetness and apple. Flavor had hints of honey, with the a tartness of a grannysmith apple. Very light body, and clean clean. Thanks to cbkschubert for this bottle.

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

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
