Bottle. Pours a pretty hazy golden, small kinda fizzy white head, dissipates quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is grains, some citrus, grapefruit, bread. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, some pine, bread, grains, citrus, caramel, grass. Light plus body. Not bad at all actually.

Hazy golden orange in color... Aroma of light cereal grains, golden malts... Flavor is earthy malts, super earthy grainy hops, kind of saison-y... Tastes like Nelson sauvin hops, really enjoyable for a golden ale

Aroma is very clear slight citrus. Taste is wow. Something weird but good weird. I would describe it as toasted sunflower seeds with grapefruit peel. Decent beer overall

Frm a 650ml bottle on 13/7/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a clearish golden with a big white head. Hasa light fruity aroma with a hint of yeast. Flavour wise, it’s very fruity (orange and lemon) and features a relatively assertive, zesty, quite refreshing bitterness. Has a slightly creamy texture and medium carbonation. A nice golden ale.

~Interesting lemony orange grapefruit citrus aroma, floral, with honey and bready malts.
~ Pours a hazy light golden color with small white head.
~Taste of citrus, rye spiciness, bread, grapefruit.
~Light bodied with medium High CO2, hop astringency, lingering bitter citrus finish.
~Very drinkable and interesting enough to keep me wanting more. Definitely hop heavy, but not over the top.

A decent, refreshing but odd tasting beer. Pours a nice golden color with a thick white head. Smells of berries and some hops. Taste starts with berries, but then thins, empty taste at finish. The hops come in at the aftertaste. Had on tap in Benicia.

Draft sampler pour at Face to Face Beerfest ( f2f.org ): Lemon and hint of chives in aroma, medium body with syrupy sweet malt flavor leading to hoppy flavors. Moderately clear and blonde.

Wet farmy aromas. pearlescent golden color with nice lasting head about 1/2 inch thick . Taste like peanuts with a little of their shell, slight yeast. That peanut old taste stains your mouth. Strange catches you off guard.

This gold ale has a nice white head. Strong citrus aroma highlights the hop character of this beer. Strong hop flavors make this a big hop heavy ale.

Sampled at Fremont Diner in Sonoma. Pours a bright golden color with frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light hay, honey, sweet pale malts. Flavor follows suit with slightly sweet and grassy hops. Light bitter, super refreshing brew. Mouthfeel is on the very light side, medium plus carbonation. This came off as a combination between a light pale ale and a nice crisp golden ale and it came together rather nicely. I would have this again for sure, especially on a hot summer day.
