Be honest: Your credit card is maxed and your bank account minimized.
It’s the month of January, a financial hangover from Christmastime’s gift-giving gluttony. So with imports and high-end craft beers out of the budget, let’s get real and look your most palatable cheap stuff — beginning with Extra Gold Lager.
Produced by Molson Coors Brewing Co., this stuff smells of straw and tastes of cereal and corn. The roasted malts and high carbonation are not negatives for this particular brew and, if you’re anything like this reviewer, it may even bring back some college memories.
No, it doesn’t compete with your premium brands — but at less than $15 a case, don’t cry about it.
Will this be the best (or least worst) of the bargain beers? Check back throughout the month to find out.
