Cold 330mL bottle poured into a mug. No date or code noted. Provided by a friend and I don't know purchase location or price.
A: Solid straw-yellow brew, clear with some active carbo flowing upward. Thin white head stable at a thick single layer that leaves spotty lace. At first I thought it might be an EPL but it is classified as a Helles Lager.
S: Starchy and sweet raw malt backbone, like wort in the kettle, with some fleeting herb/earth/floral hop.
T: Awesome raw grainy sweetness with an afterthought of mild indistinguishable hop. Yep, Helles Lager by the malt, but maybe a bit light on the hops.
M: Thin and light with a softly fizzy carbonation. Readily distinguishable from a typical EPL on account of a bit more body.
D: Chuggable, but good and balanced enough to be savored. I know nothing about this brew or its brewery, but it gives the impression of being a good macro. Not phenomenal, but solid, enjoyable, and lacks anything offensive.

1/2 liter bottle of Austrian lager, Stiegl. I'm accustomed to seeing the pils around my area. The local college in Steubenville has an exchange program with a college in Austria all of the Catholic college kids come back state side with a craving for this industrial style lager from Salzburg. A deep golden akin to apple juice with a large white head forming thick with flowing stream of carbonation bubbles in the glass, speckled lacing sporadic but there. The nose has nice floral/herbal hops in the back end with an upfront, bread dough sweetness with hints of cooked vegetable pretty straight forward Euro lager truth be told, but pretty clean so far. An enjoyable rolling malt sweetness, think biscuit malt with some mineral water, just enough herbal hops to give it a zing, completely clean dry crisp lagered finish. This beer is meant to be drank in number, not complex at all but doesn't really set out to be that type of beer. This is industrial style mass produced lager with a decent flavor, I can't complain it is what it is. Not leaps and bounds above an American style light lager, but there's more tradition in this glass than your average BMC. Goldbrau is right it says it all it's Gold beer, highly force carbonated yet finishes clean with just enough hop snap to keep you coming back for another sip. If those college kids want to relive their semester abroad more power to them, I can see the sentimental value in a lot of bad beers this is just extremely middle of the road to be a go to beer for me.

Had a glass at 1600 Bier Haus in Calgary. A bit of a rarity on tap, one is more likely to run into its German Pils stablemate. The darker Goldbrau is in fact pretty light, maybe just on the orange side of lemon yellow, with a little white foam. Aroma is an interesting blend of sweet corn (I'd be surprised if there is actual corn in here but perhaps), biscuit, and a bit of a funky "off" note that actually sort of works since it is subtle and far from overpowering. Old wet malt? Anyhow, taste is quite tart and acidic with a decent amount of carbonation, brown sugar and sweet dough with a little noble hop spice and a mellow sweet cherry note (a bit like cherry gum) that shows up early and persists through the crisp finish. A subdued but classy and well-executed Oktoberfest, just this side of a Pils or Euro lager really in terms of appearance and flavor, but with some rich malt character and no obvious flaws.
