COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our smooth Gold Lager starts with caramel malt aromas that are subtle yet pronounced. A kiss of Perle hops offers a touch of bitterness and incredible balance to its robust body. This beer is a tribute to a real Des Moines original. A staple in the 1950’s bar scene, Ruthie was the finest woman to ever serve a beer in our capital city.

Nice clean golden lager with a good flavor profile. Waitress called it "dark" ��. Which I suppose is correct when it is next to Lite or Bud... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour, thick white head that fades to nothing. Aroma is light, thin caramel malts, faint grain. Taste is grass, faint caramel malts, lightly bitter, lightly grainy. Light body, high carbonation. Not bad.

Clear golden pour, small white head. Aroma is malty some bread. Fairly sweet tasting, light and refreshing, better suited to summer. Overall better than I expected. Nice label. Thanks Jerry!
