Share This Review

Solid Gold is a Premium Lager brewed by Founders Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

The lager pours a mostly-clear golden hue and is topped by nearly an inch-thick cap of loose, bubbly white froth that dissipates rapidly. The head doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue. A few bubbles stream in the glass.

Aroma

Its aroma consists of corn and a hint of grassy hops.

Flavor

A neutral opening of bread and corn gently rises to a mild bite of hops that’s grassy, floral, and minerally. Its bitterness is quickly mellowed by a dollop of honey and corn.

Mouthfeel

The feel is crisp with a light grain. Its body is light with moderate carbonation.

Overall

Solid Gold satisfies but doesn’t necessarily delight. It’s light, refreshing, easily quaffed, and its low ABV makes for a nice session brew. Its palate is simple but that little pop of hops in the finish is pleasing. Also, that Solid Gold is light and balanced makes it a good beer to have in the fridge for the non-craft beer drinkers. This Lager may not become anyone’s go-to beer but it’s about as good as one can expect from the style.
