This was picked up in my local Tesco after being reduced to clear, Iíd seen it on the shelf a few times but not being a great (mass produced) lager drinker, and it being a 6pack, I left it where it was! In the past however, I rather liked Tennents Gold Bier, and I kinda miss it, "This could be the same thing relabelled at a slightly lower ABV" I thought ...thatís why I bought the reduced pack!! This isnít Gold Bier :( itís pretty much a slightly fuller bodied version of the bog standard "lager" produced by Tennentís, and as I REALLY donít like that, I cant say I took to this! The only problem I have now is how to dispose of the other 5 bottles...I hate waste, but this may just end up down the sink!

degbert (1345) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Can. Pours a clear gold with a high, pillowy, mixed-grain white head. Nose is adjunct, yeast, skunk, and cereal. Mostly watery on the palate, with low carbonation; the flavor is mostly boring, typical mass-produced lager adjunct cereal. Finish is non-existent. Pardon me while I fall asleep in my beer.

FatPhil (10663) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2015
500ml can - thanks Marduk!
Pale & fizzy. Sweet, pale lagery aroma. Sweeter, and less nasty than I expected. Weak, watery, and not horrific enough to arouse me. Jeebus, this even has hops in the finish. Extracty hops, sure, but they are very clear.

suurjuust (1741) - ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2015
Clear golden beer, medium white head. Nose is sweet malty and honey notes, grain. Flavor is grainy malt, some sweetness. Your average eurolager.

chinchill (2903) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2015
11.2 oz bottle. Golden body with a good head. Floral and English hips with faint bread in the nose. Flavor follows but with less appealing hops.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Can. Toffee malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Lightly sweet toffee malt and mildly bitter grass flavor. Okay.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Can from Caponeís. Pours golden with white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is apricotty fruit, pale malt, some sweetness and hops. Tastes of pale malt, orange marmalade, hops, almost like a poor manís Two Hearted light. Not bad.

Patrickctenchi (4722) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Can: Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Grain, honey aroma. Taste is sweet grain malt, a little lemon.... Pretty nice flavour, and the body is fairly robust and creamy. Definitely above average.

sudomorph (886) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
500ml can. 5%abv. Pours a crystal clear, light yellow with a one finger, white head that thins. Aroma has smooth notes of grain, slight adjunct, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Sweet grains, classic, mild hops, and a short ending. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall pretty standard but easy drinking and refreshing.

CHUCK1972 (1) - - MAY 14, 2015 does not count
Aroma is fresh. Appearance is golden with a beautiful frothy head white. Taste is sweet nutty flavor. Medium body with thin texture. Lively carbonated with long finish. Exceeded my expectations. I have found my new favourite

johnnnniee (2833) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2015
Can from Bertís Pours a bright almost neon golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Grainy crackery pilsner malt with a hint of skunk and just a touch of spicy hop. The flavor adds a honey like sweetness and just a touch of sulfur. Decent enough lager, cool that its in a big can, but unremarkable.
