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.

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.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with cbkschubert (thanks!). Poured a lighter and clear orangish color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grain, toasted malts, and light grass. Tastes of grains, light citurs, and I was getting light caramel. Thin and watery.

Thanks to maniac for this one. Medium gold, touch of bronze, slight head. Aroma lightly of bread with a bit of oat. Oat, cereal, faint floral hops on a slightly watery finish. Unremarkable.

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.

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.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, 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.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2012
A clear yellow/golden colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of malts with fruit, some orange. The taste is fruity, malts and a little hop. The aftertaste is sweet with a small bitter.

Holy crap I wonder when I will learn to stop drinking these boring ass worthless pale lagers? I guess when I decide to stop rating. Until then...tick tick tick!

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Fiery straw, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Musty underarm grainy aroma, slight sock, a little bit of vegetable, toss in some wet cardboard, and pizza dough.   Thin malt flavor, slightly grassy, not so bad on the tongue as on the nose.   Very thin tho, finishes quick, too watery.   Only very pale malts on this one, and even then they are so very light.   Nothing I would have again.
