4/5 rDev +11.7%
Sampling right now on 2/11/14, Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.
Pours a nice honey gold in color with a small white head that settle down to nothing. NO lacing at all either. The aroma is of grains with a hint of sweet bread/yeast. The taste was actually really smooth like the aroma with a very slight hoppy finish that last about 2 seconds. Overall a great beer that goes down easy and would be a great choice for a warm summers day as well.

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
A - I stopped pouring the beer with less than an inch left in the bottle as sediment began emptying which left the beer a pale golden yellow color with an ever-so-slight particle haze and a fleeting white head.
S - Opening with that classic German lager aroma, Gold Coin already wins points in my book. Light zesty spice is imparted by noble hops and the back end has a simple and delicate pale malt nose with a touch of pils sweetness.
T - Pale malt graininess is laced with a touch of spicy noble hops but this helles is as nuts-n-bolts simple as it gets.
M - Light bodied and crisp with a beautifully drying level of carbonation tickling the tongue.
O - Gold Coin is a terribly simple helles lager but that's no disrespect. Simplicity is it's achievement, finishing with a nice and crisp balance and clean lager smoothness that makes it über drinkable.

This German Style Blonde Ale has as the name indicates a nice gold color. Pours out smooth and builds up a one to two finger head that quickly disappears. This is an easy drinking and tasty brew that would be nice to sip on a warm summer day. A solid offering from Iowa's largest production brewery.

A - honey gold color. Minimal white head. Coppery highlights.
S - lots of cereal-like grains and delicate caramel. Some very mild herbal hop aroma as well.
T - immediately sweet and a bit tangy up front. Definite pale malt body. Very smooth and rounded. Hints of citrus, spices, and some earthiness.
M - thin body. Very creamy and smooth. Quite drinkable and refreshing. Finish is fairly clean with only a hint of residual sweetness.
