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 doesn’t 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 it’s intended to do, and it fulfills its promise of thirst-quenching without fanfare; picked up at a make-a-six at Wegman’s, and happy for it; will not win any awards, IMO, but will make an afternoon more enjoyable, for certain... (1,249 characters)

4/26...bright but light gold. White bubbly foam on top. Small straw and hay nose. Subtle citrus. Rich malty lager flavor, some sweetness. Light, easy, good flavor profile. Simple and subtle. (190 characters)

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some grains. Taste is crisp, clean, malts, some hops at the finish, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a fine session beer. (253 characters)

A - Nice deep amber color with a thick and foamy white head. Ample carbonation, but nothing too obnoxious.

S - Can definitely pick up on the German hops just by smelling it, and maybe a little bit of cornbread and sweet dinner roll. Very pleasant smelling.

T - Great. Wonderful smooth full-bodied lager taste, with just enough hops to give it a punch. Has a sweet buttery tone to it, like a sweet dinner roll, very tasty.

M - Thick for a lager, but very full. Not greasy or watery, but almost a perfect viscosity for a beer.

O - Very good beer. Great first impression by the Susquehanna Brewing Company, a very good lager and a very good beer all around. (666 characters)
