Xingo Gold boasts a higher hop load than many lagers of this type. I respect that. This brew has a fresh feel and a crisp finish thanks to the clean hops. Xingo Gold only has one real problem but it’s a major one in my opinion. The malt is unrefined. Toward the middle of the mouth, it becomes slightly musty. Otherwise, I have no gripe with this lager. Just be sure to drink it cold. Big hop profile or not, this lager’s body isn’t complex enough to perform well at a warmer temperature.

Lager esotica abbastanza luppolata, con note leggere e poco persistenti di frutta tropicale. Molto piacevole!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre bottle. A: Pale golden, clear, small head which didn’t hang around long, not much lacing. S: Fantastic pronounced cascade hop aroma, citrus and mango. T: Very fruity, mainly mango but notes of various citrus fruits, slightly bitter finish, well balanced. M: Light body, crisp, decent carbonation gives it a prickly feel. O: Very light, perfect for a summer’s day. Listed as a Czech pilsener but to me it was an English Pale Ale or possibly an "IPL"
