Bottled (thanks Kim N!). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grains, some slight herbs, mild grassyness as well as some bready notes. Flavour is grass, grains, some herbs and mild sweet maltyness as well. Also has a slight alcoholic sting to it. kevnic2008 (11980) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - APR 23, 2012
A sweet medium bodied lager with a touch of spiciness near finish. Some nose of fresh bread. DuffMan (10278) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Iím looking back on my rating for the pilsener by Goolman and Iím struck by how this beer is pretty much identical (although having them side by side would help sort things out). Anyway, as I recall, this beer had almost no hop character to speak of-- just sweet creamed-corn aroma and corn syrup malt that became too much in the end. A waste of a fancy bottle design.

Medium gold rather small head on top . Aroma indicated good depth of malt work with solid hop presence . Full bodied , smooth work . Slightly on sweeter side but with just enough of Lublin hops . A bit to dry at finish . bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2007
Orangey golden body with an average white head. Malt mainly on the aroma which took a little getting used to, then some rockmelon. Grain in the taste as well as soap, butterscotch and a little bit sweet.

Rating from January 2005. Falsely put under Perla Goolman!?!?Lunkie (1926) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2006
Tasted from the bottle, the first warning signs were there just from the clear glass. Poured a honeyish pale gold with light bubbles that raised up sluggishly to a big dense white head that barely held. Very low malt aroma, honeyish, sweet. Little complexity in the mouth, honey in front, hint of fruity esters across the palate with the mild carbonation leading to a medium length, sweet swallow. Noticeable diacetyl slickness and a soapiness mars the mouthfeel. Too sweet, no complexity, not my thing. (33cL, 12/04/05, Conís Case Place)
Hop malt aroma. Clear amber colour with poor head and lacing. Bitter malt hop flavour. Fizzy palate. vanvenlo (1861) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2006
8 April 2006 - Very light sweet hoppy aroma. Clear amber colour, poor head and Lacing. Simple light malt and hoppy flavour. Wierd hoppy aftertaste and some steely notes. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2006
Dull industrial Polish lager. Perfectly drinkable but as bland as a dumpling. Shocked to find this is my 8th Polish rating because I donít remember any of them. This one came in a clear bottle, which is a bad start. This sample was only marginally light-struck but why take the risk. Standard lager gold, solid 0.5cm of foam, fair length. Hint of skunk in the aroma but the dominant notes are grass and butter on the turn. Itís not a diacetyl bomb but some palates may find it intolerable. Harsh, spritzy carbonation that can be tasted. Soap, hay and a sour finish. Moderate bitterness. Forgettable. (330ml bottle labelled Goolman Original Gold, abv 5.4%. Liquor on Parade, Kingsford.

This sounds like that little sassy barmaid from Cheers. Married to Danny de Vito isnít she? The dreaded pale lager curse strikes again I think. The highlandladdie hits in on the head with the description of íindustrialí. Beer for the proletariat and not much more. Generally it has a dumbed down taste that most euro lagers demonstrate. It would have to be a record lawnmowing session to get me to like this one.
