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.

Bottle. Fairly typical golden lager, with a mild, crisp hop aroma. Slightly sweet malty flavor with balancing hoppiness. Light body and crisp carbonation.

Had this two times and it sure isn’t a Pilsner, despite their website description. The brewpub/grill listed it as a Munich style Helles lager. This one certainly doesn’t kill you with grassy hops! Standard golden color with a nice initial white head, that dissipated gradually, but provided solid lacing. The aroma was malty rich and the hops undetected. The flavor was sweet (maybe a bit too much) and malty grainy (some light honey flavors). Fairly heavy mouthfeel, sticky sweet. (Resampled on 5/2/06.)

Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert. Poured a hazy golden body with huge head. Grainy aroma, crisp. Flavor is light grain, light malt, slightly bitter. Not bad for a pale lager.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours slight cloudy orange with a fully diminished white head. Light yeasty and malt aroma. Flavour is mild fruity and with a mild malt base. Light fruity hops note into the finish. Mild delicate finish.

Pours a slightly cloudy gold color with a thin fizzy head. Sweet maly aroma with some yeast and light fruit. Nice flavor, sweet malt and caramel with some grain and hops. Not a bad lager.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a one finger white head that fades into a persistent soap scum topper. Nose is sweet malt and lager hops. Taste is light corn syrup, honey and grassy hops. Medium mouth feel. Not too bad. Glad to see this brewery bottling more of their line-up.

Bouteille brune 12 noces achetée à Phœnix. Liquide blond clair translucide. Nez malté avec une odeur végétale ou épicée (jus de tomate?). Peut-être un houblon américain. En bouche, idem au nez. Un peu différent pour une lager, mais pas mauvais. Peu de mousse et corps moyen. Pour ouvrir l’appétit.

Avengedpoet (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2009
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.

Jow (1877) - New York, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Tap as part of seven dwarves flight. Pours golden with fluffy white head. Not much aromas to speak of. Tastes of hay, regular grass, citrus, vanilla, and hops. Pretty boring gold lager billed as 49er on menu fyi
