A golden ale is a delicate balance of malt and hops. To achieve this perfect balance, the ratio of malt to hops in the Golden Number Ale is based upon the actual golden number, the Fibonacci Sequence, or Phi as the Greeks knew it. This number's pervasive appearance throughout nature creates a sense of balance, harmony and beauty in art, architecture, composition, space - and now beer! Some believe this number is a universal constant of design, the signature of God. (Some believe it is a perfect ratio of malt and hops.) And for most of you playing along at home, the actual number is 1.6180339887.....

Draft at west side. Nose is moderately fruity estery with a touch of diacetyl. Fairly clear golden with small white head. Taste is malt and honey forward with some flowery notes. Just kinda bland. Ok.

chinchill (4269) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2015
On tap at the brewpub where this is the "lightest beer we brew". Bravo then, for this ale has plenty of flavor and a body that is light but only a touch watery. Near medium carbonation. Hop dominated aroma. Malt dominatd flavor but enough hops to render it balanced rather than sweet. Good accompinament to their fine food. Excellent clarity but linmited head.

Alpharetta, Ga - on tap at the brewpub. Hazy light golden pour, soft, snow white head. Aroma of coriander, cloves and bubble gum. Flavor brings out some coriander spiciness bubble gum sweetness and some Belgian candii sugar notes. Crisp mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow with a small, frothy white head. The nose is very light with slight lemon notes. The flavor is light as well with a tart, lemony taste. A light body and clean finish are expected and get delivered. What canít help this one is the lack of flavor. The worst out of all their brews Iíve tried.

ben4321 (5693) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Location: On tap at the Alpharetta Brewbup, 2/15/10

Overall Impression: It has some spice, some doughy/yeasty flavors, and some citrus hops. It pours a clear golden color. Its a solid enough golden ale. Of the 5 beers I had there this ends up in a virtual tie for 4th (5th) with the Venus, both being a few steps behind the other 3 beers.

Golden yellow, white cover. Musty sweet, light fruitiness in the aroma. Taste is again musty, bright fruits, drying finish.
