COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Durch Staub und Sand kämpfend, gefährlichen Stürmen und der Hitze trotzend, hatten die „forty-niners“ nur ein Ziel vor Augen: Ihre Suche nach dem Gold. Wir haben unseres schon gefunden und bringen nun ein Hauch des kalifornischen Goldrauschs in die Schweiz. Das Gold Miner ist exklusiv in Pfäffikon ZH nach amerikanischem Braustil gebraut und nur begrenzt verfügbar. Dieses Golden Ale ist das ideale Sommerbier und ein absolutes MUSS bei jeder Grill-Party. Es ist ausschliesslich in 500ml Einweg-Flaschen erhältlich. Kräftig in der Farbe und doch erfrischend mild im Geschmack lässt es jeden Feierabend zum Fest werden

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary, some citrus and mild sweet bready notes. Flavour is floral, fruity, nectary with some mild soapy and bitter notes too. Quite British golden ale to the style.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2011
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy deep golden, rich firm head. Interesting floray lay aroma. Dry with fairly soft mouthfeel, Relaxed and hoppy, lots of hay. Much more British in style than American. Hugely drinkable with long bitterness. Well balanced and really good!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle from Coop, Crissier
Hazy golden-amber color, with medium sized head. Aroma of malt and vegetables, cabbage, puckery. Malt and caramel flavor, with character, and with some underground hop, but unfortunately also with an evident cabbage, vegetables afterflavor. Good idea, but the execution must be reviewed; it has potential.

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Golden amber hazy color, small steady off-white head. Papery, slightly bitter and bready aroma. Light-bodied. Malty with light citrusy hoppyness. Not very fresh.

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2011
from Coop, Biel - slightly hazy golden bronze beer with a persistent and creamy white foam; nice lacework; buttery and herbal, subtle aromatic hoppiness with fruity notes underneath; medium-bodied and rounded palate, some bitter tartness; fairly carbonated; quite dry and gently bitter fruity and buttery, pretty hoppy, finish

pivnizub (8770) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2012
Fläschli (Dank an Quack-Duck!):Deep golden to light orangey coloured, medium-sized lacy white head, moderate bitter-sweet grapefruity-hoppy nose; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied, but also soft; slightly lingering orangey-hoppy finish with a delicate caramelly counterpart. Refreshing, but still a bit thin...

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2012
botte from Coop Kreuzlingen. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty base, low sweetness, with aromatic hops that are quite resiny with hints of pine.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
A Mes rate. Bottle from Bachser Mart and drunk in the Novotel in Zürich.
Attractive golden brown colour with a decent white head that settles quickly to a thin film. Malt driven aroma with some decent but delicate grassy hops in the background. Similar flavour but the hops are slightly more forward giving some good lemony bitterness and a nicely balanced finish. Not bad.

jonas (5615) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle, danke Julian! Hazy dark golden, frothy offwhite head. Peachy, flowery, somewhat perfumed aroma. Minerally hayish malt body, light metallic and grandmother flower hops. Medium body, ending on a slightly flat metallic note. Peaches retronasal. In my mind not as greatly balanced as their other offerings.
