330ml swing-top bottle

Look: As its name would suggest, a pale gold pour with a fairly thick, bubbly head. Not much in the way of lacing.

Smell: Quite a rich smell with a definite malt hit. Gets a bit resinous with a slight metallic tang once it has warmed up a bit. Still, quite a sharp and 'clean' smell and not at all unpleasant.

Taste: Follows the smell quite closely - fairly malty with resinous hints and that slight metallic hint. Again, nothing particularly earth-shattering but since this is primarily an export lager there was never going to be an excessively complex flavour profile anyway.

Feel: Medium body (moreso than its appearance would suggest) with a fairly dry finish with a hint of sweetness.

Overall: Pretty solid - this is my first encounter with Flensburger and whilst it's unlikely to win any prizes for depth or complexity the fact remains that it's a good, crisp-tasting lager.

Flensburger Gold has a thin, white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and some minor lacing left behind. You can, upon close inspection, see some fine white specs roiling about the beer, so it is not super filtered. Aroma is of rich, pungent, sweet & sour barley malt and a slight grass. Taste is of the same thing, with a noticeable biscuit note, across the sip. Mouthfeel is medium, and Flensburger Gold finishes crisp and refreshing. No complaints, here. RJT

This is an export lager so it's not gonna have earth shattering bold flavors it's gonna be a malt tilted more subtle lager and should be reviewed as such...there done with my rant.Pours a pale light golden with a thinner white head in my stein.Aromas of honey malts and iron with a bit toasted grain.Flavors are pretty dry and grainy at the onset with a little of the German iron element to it,hops are subtle and light with mild sweetness in the finish.No frills but easy drinking,a no brainer for a hot day like today.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(best before: 1/10/15)

L: pale yellow, clear with a misty look; thick 1-inch head of white foam that sticks hard; nice collar of frothy white foam; not a lot of lacing

S: sweet ... very sweet bready malt; fruity

T: oranges ... like the nose, very sweet; a bit of grain, but the sweet biscuit/bready malt taste is thorough; if there's a hop flavor, it's mostly a balancing agent that takes a little of the sweetness ... nothing bitter; peaches; fruity -- comes off like an American-made English pale ale

F: a bit soft but enough carbonation to keep it drinkable

O: loads of taste and VERY drinkable ... it's a great alternative to the German pilsener, and at times it's so sweet and fruity that you get some of the English pale ale sweet twang. it's perhaps a bit watery, but the taste is full-strength, so it works out just fine. a beer I will definitely grab again.
