3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle poured for our group by the brewer/owner himself - thanks again, man! Really cool. Anyway, it pours a somewhat cloudy gold (I was lower in the bottle) with a big white head. The hops here are floral, citrusy, and a bit soapy, balanced by pale and bready malts, hay, and a faint mineral note. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel that’s bitter for the style. Which is fine. Because so many goldes are boring, and this is pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 On tap @ RBWG 2016. Clear golden pour with a white head. Seems a bit bland to me. Some sweet bread/rolls and toast. Just a touch of lemon peel. Maybe a bit of orange. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but also doesn’t have much depth or staying power. Just kind of some sweet malt and a touch of citrus and then it drops off. Light bitterness on the finish.

Bottle shared at the brewery - many thanks to the brewer himself! Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Nice citrusy hops in the nose, with touches of pine needles and dry, pale bread as well. Light sweet flavour with some pithy citrus, grassy bitterness, hay, minerals. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry and pithy on the finish, with notes of tangerine and straw. Tasty and easygoing.
