A misleading name, it certainly looks and smells like a lager, in a not so good way. The flavor is a bit better though. Decent flavor, though a hint of butter seems to be coming through. It’s pretty good but maybe not as great as it’s apparent score.

~Pours a clear light gold with small white head. Good lacing. ~Has a light wine scent almost like a sour, subtle berry citrus. Very pleasant. ~Light malty flavor with some very night sour citrusy notes. ~Light crisp feel, light pleasant finish. ~This is an excellent light ale! I really like the subtle sour notes.

hayduke (3422) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Too bad they did not name this "Gold Lager" instead of Gold Ale. This poured a very clear light gold with a medium white head and light lacing. Nose of light malts and some floral hops. Medium body and mouthfeel. Flavor is lightly bitter with some touches of citrus. Dry in the finish. Overall a quite decent lager and easy drinking.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Poured Pale gold with medium white head, Medium hop aroma with no citrus. Helles like flavour, a little sweet malt, a little bitter hop, a little astringent. Front of the tongue bitterish finish. If they call this an ale, they’re mistaken. This is a Helles lager.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2009
Sampled at the KLCC microbrew festival. Pours out yellow with a big white head. Smell is heavy on grass and light floral with a taste that is too sweet on the malt and has an okay citrus and floral hop backing. Probably the weakest of the SOB beers I’ve had so far.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Golden color with a decent white head. Light floral aroma. Near medium body with mildly frothy carbonation. It’s rather grainy with quite mild bitter. A decent drinking lager. Finishes lightly bready and lightly bitter. Fairly dry.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Clear gold with more than one inch of white head. Good amount of lacings. Aroma is light floral hops. Taste is sweet malts with a light citrus hop flavor. Slight lemon dry finish. Makes me want some more. Very bold flavor for a Pale Lager. Very sessionable beer at 4.5% abv.

marcus (6696) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
This pale yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and light floral aroma. The flavor is mostly missing, but there is a slight amount of citrus floating on a faint caramel malt base.

OK, first, the sermon: WTF is up with stating right on the label that your beer is fermented with a lager yeast, yet you refer to it as "Gold Ale"? That aside, this is a very nice, very pale beer with a pleasant straw/grassy aroma, a nice bready but dry and crisp palate with noticeable hops to let you know it’s there. Currently very fresh at Belmobt Station and worth trying.
