Smells great! It smells fruity, but tastes a bit like a dilkuted Sam Adams. Pretty drinkable with some chicken tikka!

I had a bottle In an Indian restaurant. Fizzy golden-yellowish, white head that dissipated quickly.

Grainy smell, and the taste pretty much followed the smell. Heavy malty taste up front without much finish, no surprises.

Bottom line: it was OK with my meal, but got less and less appetizing as it warmed. I’ll try not to order it again.

Turbid pale yellow with very little white head. Some splotches of lace.
Smell is beer like.
Taste is American macro style lager but without the clarity. Tastes slightly phenolic.
Mouthfeel is light with modest carbonation. Finish lightly sweet.
Overall with no year date this could be many years old. Lots of suspended particles. I hope this beer doesn't attack my system tonight.

Bland ugly looking beer that had done separated sediment. Smell is cloying sweet of corn and honey. Taste is far better than the nose. Tastes of lemon and champagne are bright and zesty leaving a mild vinegar finish. Finishes crisp. Quite fascinating for an adjunct. Really hits the spot with spicy food.

Golden Eagle Lager Beer has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, very bubbly, deep golden appearance, and lots of thick lacing sticking to the sides of the glass. When I swished the bottom and poured, some yeast chunks were seen in the foam, and the foam turned tan (at the top). The aroma is full- pungent, sweet, malty, and noticeable as soon as the cap is popped. The flavor is really strange. There is an overriding charcoal taste in the beer, so it has a pronounced rauchbier character. One will also pick up sweetness, barley malt, and hops, but the smoke is overriding. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Golden Eagle Lager Beer finishes crisp, refreshing, and smoky. Overall, even with the bizarre nature, it is still quite good. Check it out, for an unusual experience.
