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.

Location: Draft at the brewpub, 3/3/14, as Forty-Niner Gold Lager

Aroma: The aroma is light crystal malts, some grain, sweet malt, and hop notes as well
Appearance: This beer pours a clear golden color with a small, fizzy white head
Flavor: Light and clean, some fine, but not overwhelming sweetness, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light, with a decent enough feel, and a clean dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a solid enough example of the style. It isn’t a super exciting beer, but it has some flavor and it has a nice, clean, hop finish to it that makes it easily an above average example of this style.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Had again and had to up the score. Nothing special still, but if treated properly is light and refreshing. Original score. 2.3 Smell skind of bad. Different, very creamy. Not anything that comes off as real hoppy or malty about this. Unfortunately, it seems to me to have that slight butter note coming through, like right before it’ll go bad. This is sort of a preemptory score.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Light sweet malt, corn, and a hinto citrus aroma. Sweeet malt with a light dry finish. Medium/light bodied and pretty refreshing.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 31, 2013
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.

PorterPounder (5369) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2006
On tap at the Oak Creek Brewery and Grill. Medium golden pour, crisp, bubbly white head. Aroma pretty neutral with some fresh lake water accents coming through. Clean, crisp lager flavor. Good balance of hops and malt and it finishes with a good hoppy bite. Very refreshing sitting out on the patio on a hot Sedona afternoon.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle from cbkschubert; Thanks Craig; Cap really hissed as I opened this; Nose came out as light but definate lemon aroma, not the more usual citrusy one, with some light malt in the background; gold with a big white head; flavor had a light lemony malt taste, very different from any of the 38 other pale lagers I’ve rated.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Pours a misty bronze color, light head and lacing. The nose is sweet and biscuity with a lightly floral hop note, a touch of bread and malt with just a fluff of huskyness. The flavor is nice and creamy, balanced body, moderate mouthfeel for the style and finishes on a lightly bitter tail. Nutty finish and a bit sweet overall, but tasty!

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It has a mild, bready malt aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet, light malt with some good hops in there. It’s light but not watery and manages to be a pretty solid brew for what it is.

Light grain aroma. Clear golden color with a small white head. Moderate sweet fruity and bitter beginning. Fades lightly in the finish.
