Refomulatred so I’m reviewing it again.

Bottles: unpasturized and fresh from the brewery...looks a very limpid pale gold in the glass, frothy rocky heading from a hard pour moderatr retention and fair lacing, lightly carbonated.

Aromas of cooked grains, some sweetness and green apples.

Average malt spine, slick liquid mouth feel, medium body, rounded bready character.

Grain tastes up front some better defined nobel hops offer good balance,a bit of musty rye and cider tones in the center... fast uneventful but clean finish...light bready aftertaste.

I have comfirmed this beer is an all barley malt beer made with some German malts and hops...it seems decent enough, clean lightly malty with no off tastes and is actually comparable to a very drinkable Dortmunder or a subtle Munich helles.

As the days get hotter I find myself at the Gold crown brewery more and more stocking up on this consistantly fresh all malt lager at just over a dollar a bottle...it's at least as good as most German imports, certainly fresher and maltier...and the price is right.

Gold crowns are unpasteurized and must be kept refrigerated. Despite this, super-carbonation of this beer was very evident. Like a soft drink, little taste, but drinkable for what it was. Labels falling off bottles take away from presentation of bottle.

a thoroughly average offering, poured with a pale golden colour, with little head. The taste is that of a canadian lager, without much to distinguish itself from most (canadian) macro offerings..

Purchased at the brewery in a 6 pack and reviewed on 1-11-06. The pour was of clear gold with medium carbonation and a small white head. Suprising notes of caramel and toffee in the nose reminds me of extract brewing or under attenuation. Sweet toffee in the flavor balanced out but biscuity notes leads to a crisp and dry mouthfeel. aftertaste is medium length, pleasant and inviting.

Pale gold, short head settling to a film, reasonable lace. Typical lager-look.

I regret to say that I'm not overly impressed with this brewery's work. This is just another dull-edged example – that makes 'em 0 for 3 so far with just a couple left to sample.

Inoffensive, but utterly bland. Slightly bitter in character. Sweet malt in the nose, sweet malt up front to taste. Fizzy, corn syrup characteristics.
