COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Goldencold Lager is our refreshing, German-inspired beer. Brewed with Pilsner malt and a small amount of Sauermalz to bring out a traditional, rounded note. We use a unique milling and mashing process known as Endosperm mashing, and classic decoction. By separating the husk from the mash, it allows us to brew a beer delicate in flavor and texture. Bavarian Hallertau Tradition, and Hallertau Perle hops make for a crisp, classic and nuanced bitterness that brings our corner of NEPA a little closer to you.

Pintofjoe29 (12) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Bottle to face. It?s a crisp clean brew with slight malty sweetness which I dig. Minimal hop bitterness. Finishes clean. It?s an award winning beer for its category and I can see why. Good

Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Nose is malty, clean. Taste is malty up front, spicy and hoppy in the middle. Clean and crisp. Not a lot going on but underrated in my opinion. Neat and easy to drink.

solidfunk (7882) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2016
I think Im guilty of giving this lager a slightly higher rating than a similar macro lager deserves. Am I biased? Crisp and papery. Golden pour. Sampled but not bought at Gillys.

mansquito (5593) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grain and sugar. Taste is grainy and bready. It is still clean in the graininess. Not bad for a lawnmower beer with a name to match.

Drake (12487) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Clear vibrant gold, thin fizzy white head, fair retention. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops. The taste is grainy malt, a bit of dough, grassy hops. Thin bodied, lingering bitterness, decent.

Dacrza (881) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Date: July 10, 2015... Glassware: 22 oz. pilsner... Occasion: craftbrew showdown--Susquehanna Goldencold vs. Victory Helles... Appearance: clear, golden body with steady but sparse effervescence; white head is spongy, with large gaps separating as it settles; the final formation is thin, solid and likable .... Aroma: hay and cereal malts begin the profile; bubblegum and soft floral aromas suggest a lightly hopped offering; some grainy, blanketed scents are also present.... Palate: a bit south of medium-bodied, but slightly weightier than soft; the rush to the throat is obvious, but the frontal fizziness is appreciated; the aftertaste lingers long enough to be enjoyed; a slight bitterness draws a subtle balance... Taste: a balanced approach here, with the sweet and bitter in a light-footed dance that doesnt inspire or detract from the experience-- slightly metallic hops, slightly doughy finish; some spice and variation late; a bit beefier than the Victory Helles... Overall: a lager that knows what its intended to do, and it fulfills its promise of thirst-quenching without fanfare; picked up at a make-a-six at Wegmans, and happy for it; will not win any awards, IMO, but will make an afternoon more enjoyable, for certain...

beerbomb (224) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2015
as far as a pale lager goes, this is decent, but pretty boring overall -- resembles a cheap german pilsner--aroma light skunky/grassy hops, stale bread/honey/yeast. flavor is fairly smooth and creamy, but light - crackery malts, faint floral/grassy hops, honeycomb, grain, clean bready finish, if a bit tart. pretty much as advertised. if pale lagers are your thing, this will do fine, otherwise, the action is elsewhere...

PlainsDrifter (93) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours light golden amber with frothy white head. Aroma of hay and spruce. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation. Astringent finish. Tastes a little skunk to me. Not a great beer.
