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

Bottle from Coop.Dark golden colour with white head. Fruity and flowery aroma. Maltish body with hints of metallic ending into a more metalic note. Stays fruity in the nose. Good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 Very little bitterness, full strong dominating malty body with little hop taste. There is a difficult to describe, taste beneath the rest that’s sadly not beneficial to the beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Pint glass. A: Pours an orange bit cloudy color forming a small beige head. Small retention and lots of lacings formed and left S: Sweet grains upfront with strong notes of orange zest and spices. Quite fruity. Flowery and earthy hops T: As the nose. Sweet caramel malts upfront. Quite fruity in the mouth too. Strong notes of orange, limes, orange zest. In overall, a light sweet and smooth ale in the mouth. Perfect hops bitterness balance. Medium and pleasant bitterness M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Fruity and bitter aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Even better than their APA. I don’t think it fits to an English Bitter, it’s too spicy and much less "malty" than a Bitter would be. In any case, very pleasant beer, a Swiss masterpiece [ BA Review @ 1/19/2013 ]

sebletitje (7120) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Bouteille 50cl de Coop, Moudon, BB 30/04/2015. Orangée brumeuse, col crémeux blanc. Arôme est malté, houblonné avec un bouquet au effluves prononcées de grains concassés rappelant un peu le moût. Palais est malté, cara pâle, note de moût, houblon rappelant un peu le côté US avec un léger citronné, fruité une once d’herbacé et un petit rappel de pamplemousse. Ok mais manque ce petit qcq chose pour rivaliser avec ses consœurs américaines.

500 ml bottle from coop. Pours golden with a thick white head. Citrus and malt in nose and taste. Finishes off with some bitterness and caramel. High carbonation. Remindes me of a belgian wit. Not bad.

loco_gallego (212) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Blonde ambrée légèrement orangée. Mousse disparaissant assez rapidement. Carbonation moyenne. Arôme plutôt plantes, herbal, un poil résineux. On sent un poil l’alcool, ce qui peut être dérangeant pour mieux sentir la rondeur des arômes. Goût malté entre caramel et toasté léger. Puis un goût résineux orange, avec une légère amertume. Intéressante bière Suisse, sans être transcendante.

Poured from a 50cl bottle into tall schooner. Aroma of resin, spruce, dough.A golden, hazy color, white thin foam head. Tastes lightly bitter, medium sourness, nice bite. A medium body, oily feel, lively, with a nice astringent, long finish. I like it.

Dark golden, transparent. Small off-white head. Very light carbonation. Medium body. Smells of american hops. Taste is malt, citrus. Not the worst.
