Honestly, there's just not much to say about this beer. It is boring, and bland. I have come to expect more from Bear Republic. I see what they were going for here, but why? I got this in a row of samplers at the brewery and this one just disappeared.

On-tap at Hollingshead's on to the beer:

As the naem suggests, it's gold in color, with a frothy white head on top. The aroma is mostly toasted grain and a snap of floral hops. The taste starts grainy, but turns very floral. The biterness of this beer is moderate, not much hop flaovr expect for the floralness it provides. There's a touch of pine, and many minerals can be tasted in this beer, probably from the water used to make this beer.

I wouldn't have guessed this to be a sub-4% beer, though that might explain the thin maltiness in this lager. The floral flavor takes some getting used to.

Appearance – This one is a light, hazy yellow in color with a good head.

Smell – The aroma here is stiff and grainy with a faint sense of hops, almost like a German Pilsner.

Taste – The flavor here is straight lagered American grain with a bit of grassy hop balance.

Mouthfeel – This is of course light-bodied. The one thing that I look for in this style is big, huge carbonation, and this one doesn’t disappoint.

Drinkability – This flavor won’t knock your socks off but the body and carbonation are right on.

Draught @ Papago
The beer after its pour from the tap sets in the glass a limpid amber color with the head modest in size and a semi-creamy off white color, the resultant lace a thin but concealing sheet. Nose is the prototypical sweet malt, fresh and clean, start sweet with a nice malt presence, the top light to moderate in feel. Finish is pleasantly acidic; the hops mild and pleasing to the palate, the aftertaste dry and clean, a nice session beer with its relatively low ABV, certainly worth a sample.

Tap@Bear republic Brewpub. Gees, they make such great beer, so i guess this was a surprise, just a bland, slightly cleaner Mexican lager or something, i don't know why they brew it as only saw it at the brewpub while in Californian. Maybe its a popular choice their or something???
