Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at Oak Creek. Pours a golden color with a medium sided white head. Aroma is corn, malt, water. Flavor is much the same. Light and refreshing and well crafted for a pale lager.

Pours golden with egg white head. Aroma of rotting vegetables. Watery flavor. Almost no body.

Tasted at Brewery. Very clean, light citrus, lightly hopped, crisp finish. Tastes like a home brew. A decent pale lager.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense, frothy, ivory head that laces nicely. The haze is coming from tons of super-fine suspended sediment. The nose is a muted, yet straightforward, sweet graininess with just a touch of grassy/floral hops in the background. Light-bodied and thin with a slick mouthfeel, it reveals fine carbonation at the swallow along with just a touch of a metallic note at the crisp, clean finish. Mildly sweet, grainy malt again with a light metallic note at the quick finish. Not a bad pale lager. i could easily see myself putting away a few of these on a hot summer day. It’s worth trying, if not just to remind yourself that not all pale lagers are yellow fizz-water.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
Poured amber from the tap with a white head. Mildly bitter with the taste of hops. Couldn’t finish the sample. Not impressive at all for a previous medal winner.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2007
12 oz bottle via trade (thanks Hellbilly!). Pours a near crystal clear amber with a small white head. Nose is malty with a trace of honey. Taste is what you would expect from a good clean session lager, albeit a bit grainy. Not getting any hops in this.. Finish is watery. Body is light, carbonation is medium. A nice clean simple beer.

2.4
KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Labeld simply as ’Gold Lager’. Pours a light golden color, a little more orange/yellow than standard gold. A head from my agressive pour is minimal and disappears quickly. The aroma is of lemons, pine, and wood with a little bit of hops. The flavor is a little of apples, pee, a touch of hops. a quick hitting light palate.

Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Taster in Sedona. Pale yellow, mild hop and malt flavors. What Budweiser wishes it was... Nice for the style...
