Beer Review, Penn Gold

Penn Gold
Pittsburgh, PA
5.00% ABV

Appearance: Very clear yellow-white body, lots of effervescence, with a thin white head. Would be transparent except for the bubbles in the glass. Very nice presentation for-style. 4.5/5

Smell: Sweet malty corn aroma, not much else. Hints of wheat perhaps? 3.0/5

Taste: Ooh, nice malt crispness. Sweeter than expected, flavors of corn and malt. Finishes sweet but clean. 4.0/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness, thicker than expected for the style. Low carbonation, no hops to speak of. 4.0/5

Drinkability: What is it with Pennsylvania Brewing and their note-perfect German-style beers? I loved Penn Weizen and I like this quite a bit. Wonder if they brew a dopplebock.... 4.0/5

Overall: 3.9/5
