work hard to brew the best beer around. The news has already spread — drinking Goldmine is a richly rewarding experience.

NOTE: This is the same beer as Copper Bell Lager, renamed due to legal action from Bell’s. Brewed for Whole Foods Market.

Thanks drake! Floral, perfume-y nose, lightly fruity yeast. The malt is doughy and sweet with a bit of honey and ripe pear. Hopping is not noticeable. Thin body.

12oz can courtesy of drake: pours a clear pale golden with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Has a dry lightly skunked grassy nose with a touch of honey. Starts with decent fullness and mild grainy malty sweetness with a decent balance of bittering hops before a fairly clean finish. Aroma is off-putting, but once you get past it, this is fairly drinkable.

12oz can, "thanks" drake. Clear pale straw body, medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, cereal/bread, some melon, straw. Taste is moderately sweet, bread/cereal, light straw. Light body, some effervescence, fairly drinkable.

arminjewell (9576) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Drake! Clear yellow pour, pretty fizzy white head. Wanted this as it was 90+ today, seemed like a good day for it. Aroma brought notes of wet grain, corn, slight fusels, hints of hay, spicy notes, some slight pineapple. Taste is sweet corn, grain and hay notes, slight spice and more grain, slight fruit, finishing bitter, clean. Some off and adjunct notes in here for sure.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12oz can thanks to Drake. Pours a clear straw, larger forced carbonation. Medium, suddy soap foam. Little to no lace. Nose is sugar cube and canned pineapple. Taste is sweet, sugar cube, canned pineapple, small soap. Not gross, but why not just drink Bud Light?

It’s a smooth and crisp taste. It’s refreshing and doesn’t overwhelm the senses. Mmmm.

Pours clear yellow-orange with about two fingers of stark while rapidly dissipating head. Grass is prominent in the odor. Taste is a little light sweetness, starts off soft and then goes to a slight banana taste that generally is dominated by the typical lager sickly sweetness. Not a great lager, but not a bad lager either. Fairly middling for a sub-par style.

PorterPounder (7822) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 12 oz can. Medium gold appearance, light white head. Pretty much a neutral aroma, brief traces of wet paper bag. Flavor is bland, but not offensive. Some grassy notes, a hit of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel - just a tad bit of tinniness. Much better than the Copper Bell Light I just had.

ronaldtheriot (1904) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Copper Bell has a very thick, soapy, stark-white head with a decent amount of thick lacing and a mostly clear yellow-golden appearance, with a presence of fine particulate matter. The aroma is of sweet, wet hay and grain, and the flavor is of barley, grain, a dash of hops, and there is some bite to it. Mouthfeel is very light and watery, and Copper Bell finishes fairly crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. For someone on a tight budget, it’s okay, otherwise it’s only average. RJT.

Surprisingly heady. Very pale yellow. This is actually a bit funkier and less tasty than the light.
