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.

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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brew pub in Tlaqapaque. Pours a golden Pils color with decent head. Nuttiness and Pils malt dominate the aroma. Taste has a nice lightly toasted nut character. Light, refreshing, and well-crafted for the style.

Deep, gold color. Yeasty, sour aroma (very mild). Nice, light, mildly hoppy flavor. Not a lot of ooomph, but nice. Has a mild yeastiness, too. Not bad.
