COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Goldencold Lager is our refreshing, German-inspired beer. Brewed with Pilsner malt and a small amount of Sauermalz to bring out a traditional, rounded note. We use a unique milling and mashing process known as Endosperm mashing, and classic decoction. By separating the husk from the mash, it allows us to brew a beer delicate in flavor and texture. Bavarian Hallertau Tradition, and Hallertau Perle hops make for a crisp, classic and nuanced bitterness that brings our corner of NEPA a little closer to you.

Dacrza (633) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Date: July 10, 2015... Glassware: 22 oz. pilsner... Occasion: craftbrew showdown--Susquehanna Goldencold vs. Victory Helles... Appearance: clear, golden body with steady but sparse effervescence; white head is spongy, with large gaps separating as it settles; the final formation is thin, solid and likable .... Aroma: hay and cereal malts begin the profile; bubblegum and soft floral aromas suggest a lightly hopped offering; some grainy, blanketed scents are also present.... Palate: a bit south of medium-bodied, but slightly weightier than soft; the rush to the throat is obvious, but the frontal fizziness is appreciated; the aftertaste lingers long enough to be enjoyed; a slight bitterness draws a subtle balance... Taste: a balanced approach here, with the sweet and bitter in a light-footed dance that doesnít inspire or detract from the experience-- slightly metallic hops, slightly doughy finish; some spice and variation late; a bit beefier than the Victory Helles... Overall: a lager that knows what itís intended to do, and it fulfills its promise of thirst-quenching without fanfare; picked up at a make-a-six at Wegmanís, and happy for it; will not win any awards, IMO, but will make an afternoon more enjoyable, for certain...

beerbomb (213) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2015
as far as a pale lager goes, this is decent, but pretty boring overall -- resembles a cheap german pilsner--aroma light skunky/grassy hops, stale bread/honey/yeast. flavor is fairly smooth and creamy, but light - crackery malts, faint floral/grassy hops, honeycomb, grain, clean bready finish, if a bit tart. pretty much as advertised. if pale lagers are your thing, this will do fine, otherwise, the action is elsewhere...

PlainsDrifter (83) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours light golden amber with frothy white head. Aroma of hay and spruce. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation. Astringent finish. Tastes a little skunk to me. Not a great beer.

pet3rman (366) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle: Pours light gold/yellow with light white head. Some lacing. Aroma is corn and malt. Flavors has a soapy quality that is off-putting. Slight bitterness at finish. Iíll pass next time.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy bright golden color with a meidum sized soapy white head ath left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweet, corny, a bit of citrus and egg white. The flavor was tangy, citric, sweet, yeasty and had a bit of grass and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Not good.

joeneugs (4205) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear gold color with a small white head. The aroma has some sweet corn and malt with some spicy/floral hops. The flavor is bready with medium noble hop flavor and bitterness. A little acidity. Pretty quenching, tasty stuff. Well done.

EithCubes (5242) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Nose is strongly citric and lemony with light grainy character and citric noble hops, pours clear pale golden with a fizzy and soapy off-white head. Taste is very sweet and malty, thin body only a step above watery, simple pale malt character is very repeatable, again lots of lemony character from the hops and very low bitterness, a touch out of balance there but erring on the side of moreishness. Light grass and a very faint touch of toast/biscuit. Mostly clean with a touch of grain, not very crisp and a touch oilier than anticipated. Have to give it to them, this is a massively "German" beer, Iíve had dozens of summertime lagers like this and the authenticity should not be questioned; I also think thereís a level of enjoyment here that the rating numbers just canít hold. Brings back memories, and mostly good ones!
