Pours hazy orange with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma is lightly flowery, some grassy hops, and sweet pilsner and caramel malts. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet malty with a fair dose of piney hops. Rather simple, yet quite drinkable.

bottle, as Co-op Freeminer Goldminer from Co-op in Newent, Glos. Amber colour with a small head. Malty, intensively hoppy with a resiny character. Slightly fruity. Dragonblaze99 (353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2009
Faint malty and hoppy aroma. Pale amber with little head. Flavour is almost pure grapefruit. Oily palate. Finishes grainy. Not to my taste at all.

Keep seeing these in my local co-op but usually buy my beer from elsewhere. Was drunk on the way so popped in to try one. It was alright actually but won’t make me make a special journey. Saw a smackhead steal some bacon which was a little surprising. No re-sale value in bacon. Usual gold with white head appearance. Malt, hops, light fruit, dusty grainy finish.

Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival as Gold Miner. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is moderate malty with some hops. Flavor is malt, toffee, fruity and quite hoppy, a little hint of liquorices in the finish. OK Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Copper golden body. Lively, huge white head. Fresh smell of sappy hops. The taste brings juicy malts and resinous hops with a touch of toffee. More hops to the ending. 500ml bottle as Gold Miner from a co-operative in Tayport, Fife 02.11.2008.
