Can version. I paid exactly 50 cents to try this. I was all ready to make fun of the name but this beer really does have an nice gold color which surprised me. It smelled and tasted pretty crappy though, and that didn't surprise me at all.

Extra Gold Lager has a thick, white, marshmallow-type head, a clear, deep gold, bubbly appearance, and lots of lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet & sour roasted barley malt and other grains. Taste is of sweet, funky grain, a touch of hops, and it has a moderate roastiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Extra Gold Lager finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. Overall, this just might be the best American-style adjunct lager on the market! Oh, yeah!

Poured a deep golden color with impressive white puffy head. Smell is minimal, with some sweet malt notes present. Taste is good with a strong malt character. Finished very refreshing and thirst quenching. Makes a very nice spacer. Can't beat it at $11.99 an 30 pack. Took a case on vacation and everyone liked it.

Pale gold color, modest head, little lace or carbonation. Fresh aroma of grain and faint hops. Taste is refreshing, mild grain and hops, not enough malt for my taste, smooth finish; very clean on the palate. Not bad but not particularly notable either.

Poors frothy, but calms down to a thin soapy head. Few bubbles are visible. Clear yellow; essentially looks the same coming out of the can as it will coming out of you.

The smell isn't terribly appealing but is better than most mass-produced lagers. Just your basic barley smell.

Tastes okay for what it is. Not really any sign of hops. Relatively clean and mild aftertaste.

Tingly and thin. The mouthfeel is the best part of this beer to me. It feels about the same as a club soda but with less tingle.

Moderately good drinkability for no other reason than the price: $10 for a 30 pack where I come from. Not a beer to enjoy or sip, but if you can get it really cold and frosty then its a good beer for hot dogs in the summer or purposely trying to get a cheap buzz. Not much use for it beyond that.
