This is a decent pale lager.
Gold, it has a medium-big white head soon thins.
Aroma is grain, grass, apple skin, very light.
Taste is lightly zesty grass, apple skin, grain up front, sweeter grain-light white bread - following. It has a somewhat nice, zesty finish. A bit thin and soapy,especially when warm. It's a decently good, solid pale lager but thin and a bit rough, very basic.

Appearance: Clear medium golden in color with a faint haze, and a fairly large, dense and persistent white head. Small bubbles ascend to the surface in columns. The lacing is thick and scattered.
Aroma: Clean pale malt, moderate hops which seem almost noble in type, and some mineral notes.
Taste: Opens with crisp pale malt, followed by somewhat bitter, metallic hops. As the taste progresses, the hops hold sway over the malt, although not overpoweringly so. This seems slightly unusual for an American Adjunct Lager, although not unpleasant in any sense. Finishes with a touch of malt sweetness and a lingering metallic hop note.
Mouth feel: Smooth and fairly soft, with a hint of sharp carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: For the price, its hard to complain, and in my opinion, it is as good or better than the American Adjunct Lager offerings from Bud, Miller, and Coors.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce pop-top aluminum can, served in a standard pint Pilsener glass.
Source: Purchased at Whole Foods in Texas in January of 2014 for $3.99/six-pack plus tax.

12 oz Can.
Aggressive side pour into a tulip.
A: Crystal clear light gold color. Well carbonated. Almost no head. Disappeared fast. Very little lacing and very oily.
S: Barely smells like beer. Corn and a little bit of hops. That's about it.
T: Not bad. Decent tasting actually for what it is. Decently balanced.
M: Just a little bite from the carbonation. Smooth.
O: Not bad for a basic adjunct lager. Price point is right at $3.99 for a six-pack. Yes... only $3.99. Just a basic American lager. It is so light, I can hardly imagine the Goldmine Light. Nothing offensive or off tasting so decent. I would call it Just-A-Beer. Certainly drinkable and chugable. LOL! Its a beer bong beer.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and faint notes of golden yellow. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy bright white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of grainy malts with corn and rice adjuncts. Light hints of grassy hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of grainy malts with mostly corn and some rice adjuncts. Light amounts of grassy hops which impart a light to moderate bitterness which lingers.
M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Easy to drink and went really well with the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs and Low Country Boil at the cookout, did not compete with the flavors of the food. Nothing really special about this one that makes me want to purchase it again but not offensive as some beers in the style can be.

This beer in a nutshell? Cheap and drinkable.
Its clear and light gold. Lacing is very thin.
Smell...is off. It has a little bit of a sweetness, and a little...hint of metallic.
Taste is fine. Its not too bitter, mostly a corn-y sweetness but not off-putting. Its thin enough to chug and clean enough to like. Almost like an adjunct of an adjunct.
Overall you get what you pay for: if you're on a budget, $3 isn't the worst you could pay. If you're looking for a couple casual drinks to share, this works fine. But for a party? I say spend a little more and get your money worth.
