In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Four Peaks Golden Lager

Aroma: “Slightly sweet, hint of toast, moderate earthy hops aroma. Mild malt suggests light caramel with toast. Subtle, but very inviting.”

Flavor: “Light spicy hops, soft bready malt. Low bitterness, but it builds a little in the finish. Spicy hops are quite nice, but the sweet balance is tasty but out of style.”

Overall: “Nice malt flavors and very drinkable but not particularly helles-like, especially with the sweet balance. It could use some more hops flavor and a touch more bitterness for balance, which is critical in a helles.”
