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.

16.9 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on or freshness date present. My third beer from this brewery. I recently drank the Stiegl Radler Lemon, which is made using 50% of this beer, so I'm interested to see how it fares without the addition of lemon soda. Expectations are fairly low. Listed as a 'premium lager' on the bottle, but listed as an Oktoberfest on BeerAdvocate.

Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.

A - Pours a clear golden lager yellow colored body with a hint of amber in there. About one finger of bone white foam for a head that dies out instantly. No lacing.

S - Smell is bland. Cooked corn, grains, white bread, malt sweetness, and some wet cardboard type smell.

T - Taste follows the nose: cooked corn & grains, wheat, bready malt sweetness, and a crisp carbonated finish.

M - Feel is smooth, clean, wet, and grainy with a bit of coarse over-carbonation on the back end.

Overall, it is about what I expected. Inoffensive, drinkable, but definitely not out to break any new barriers or anything. Probably not a beer I would go out of my way to buy again, but I would certainly drink it again. I look forward to trying the rest of the beers from this brewery.

Stiegl Goldbräu Premium Lager ---3/5.
