This classic lager is pale yellow with brilliant clarity beneath its eggshell white, frothy head. Gold Medal emits a faint husky barley malt aroma with crisp and subtle green apple skins creeping through. Fruit and grain characteristics are found up front in the brew’s flavor, along with mild citrusy hops and soft astringency from the malts. The hops lend only a mild bitterness, just enough to even out the sweetness that would otherwise be cloying and unrefreshing. This is a very thin beer with gentle carbonation, finishing dry and clean with little in the way of an aftertaste.
