I researched and can't get a straight answer on if this beer is still brewed by Molson Coors. This is a beer that you could drink one or twelve..... smooth and consistent in taste. I hope to see on the Ohio shelves in the future.

Underrated... Such a GREAT tasting beer... sorry it had little to no success in my region. I live in a college town that has MEGA PACKAGE stores but NO EXTRA GOLD.... American Big Brews are SO UNDERRATED.... When they try an EXTRA GOLD or "DopPle Bock" they get axed by the Rednecks and Hipsters!!!!

12 oz Gold Can

A: Pours a bright golden color. One finger of bubbly white head. Strong carbonation. No head retention or lacing. Color is nice though.

S: Cool to the nose. Malts and grains. Sweet smelling. Cereal and corn.

T/M: Grainy and sweet. Dry. Malts. A little creamy. Moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean dry finish. Slight hop taste. Grassy and faintly floral. Bready malts.

O: Pretty boring beer. Light on taste with a halfway decent mouthfeel. Could be crisper for me. I’ve had worse from this style.

Cheers!

Honestly, some of the best beer you can get for $6.50 a 12 pack. In my opinion, tastes better than Budweiser, has the same ABV, and is much MUCH cheaper. Now I'm not a huge fan of Budweiser myself, but I know people are huge on it, and to those people, I'd say buy this and save a few bucks.

Rates about halfway between poor and below average. Pours a clear light gold color with decent head that fades quickly. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste follows the scent, just something slightly off that I can't describe. A bit more than light mouthfeel and an aftertaste that is best scribed as tinny

When I first drank it it had a bit to it and after the first one I noticed it was going down rather smooth and had a very enjoyable taste. I have now been drinking is for 5 years and you can't beat the price!

Extra Gold Lager is a rich, full-flavored lager with a deep golden color. Starts with slow aged roasted (near toasty and you can taste it) malts, which are then combined with its other ingredients (ONLY: Water, Barley Malt, A Germinated Corn Grind for a little extra maltose, Coors own nearly bottom possible temp yeast, cascade hops certainly, but I can't get an answer on their strain. Likely typical lager finishing hops because this beer is ALL LAGER. If it was in a clear Miller High Life bottle with a redesign it would go from lawnmower beer to the top of the domestic lager game. It's a robust, beautiful, full, crisp, clean, and perfect example of an American Lager. Slow-brewed to produce this truly refined lager in an unassuming packaging at an unassuming price. If I were PR I would repitch it with a marketing strategy and get back to basics. They're too bloated and monopolized to realize a blind test would put them in the top 5 American Lagers. I picture a small Coors original shape bottle with the brown glass and the stubby style with the same price.

Ingredients: Water, Barley Malt, Corn Syrup (Maltose), Yeast, Hop Extract

This here is a pretty gosh-darn easy lager to enjoy, folks. Unpretentious; best appreciated VERY, VERY cold.
A consistent pleasure for when what one wants is just a simple beer.
And as far as I can net-investigate, brewed only at the Golden, Colorado brewery.
This is a fine, excellent brew. One I hope Coors/Molson continues to brew.

Which it didn't. So, good-bye, Extra Gold, t'was good to enjoyeth.

I can barely tell it apart from Banquet by flavor. Color slightly more golden. Excellent M-F classic American lager.

The color is extra golden actually more like copper with a quickly dissipating white head of foam.

Smells like it has a bit of some sour mash, maybe like sour malts. Got it! With that bread like lager smell this smells like a sourdough bread. Love it or leave it.

The taste is pretty unremarkable or shocking. Tastes like a macro lager with a hint of sour. The sour is not offensive or overpowering. There is a bit of some sweet coming into play as well.

Mouth is a bit more towards medium with that unusual sour and sweet. Finishes easy with just a bit of oiliness.

Overall not a bad beer but more of what I would call it an inexpensive beer. Found this in a Colorado liquor store for 16.99 when I went back to Denver for a bit. This beer lends itself to be drinking it out of a can not a glass. I don't even think it wants to be analyzed because I think the cans are saying just open me and drink the damn beer.

I know opinions are like assholes everyone got one and they all stink...but in my defense I drank this beer before I was of age and every now and again when I want to feel like I’m doing something wrong but still want to feel good about it I buy two twelve packs. Once they are gone I move on once a year is good enough for me it’s kinda like pizza even bad pizza is still kinda good cause I mean it’s pizza come on you with me
