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.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has clean malt and a touch of honey but also a light green apple note. Taste follows, fresh, malty, dry, just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Light body, soft carbonation, dry on the finish. Decent lager but lacks some carbonation.
