Notes / Commercial Description:
Golden is a crisp, clean continental lager. Just four ingredients are all it takes: American malt, Mt. Hood hops, German lager yeast and pure Abita Springs water.

Clear yellow pour with a small head and light carbonation. Taste is basic grainy lager. A bit of grain and malt with a slight touch of hops of the back end.

Appearance: Very Light straw color with a white head.
Aroma: Clean malty aroma.
Flavor: Clean malty taste, with a non hoppy, slightly sweet toasty finish. Light bodied, slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall: A nice clean tasting beer. Light enough to drink all summer long. This is not your watered down TV light; has a decent flavor.
