2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper in the glass with little head and tiny lace. I really canít pick up any aromas here, maybe some spice and marshmallow as the beer warms. Nutty flavor, slight citrus with a mild bitterness, and a smooth mouthfeel. Slightly bitter back. Extremely bland, and forgettable. It is easy to drink, but very forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold colored body witha white head. The aroma is grape juice with some light Jonathon apples. There is not much else to smell. The taste is slightly bitter with bread crust and some apple core. There is also a hitn of ornages. A decent golden ale. Easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle. This ale pours clear golden brown with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is robust with toasted malts and honey. Flavor is refreshingly bitter and finishes suprisingly crisp & clean. Toast & floral hops are most notable. Medium-bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Quite drinkable. Drink some today for the cause!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iím definitely against the grain on this one. Could have been the surroundings, but had this at a crawfish boil and in the afternoon sun, a 6pk of this was really enjoyable. A big floral aroma, a touch medicinal, with a fruity hop punch. Very fresh tasting.
Iím almost afraid to buy another 6 pk; it may not be anywhere near this good, jusging by the ratings.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Barley malt aroma - slight sweetness. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet barley malt flavor with light hops finish. Okay - better than most other Abita beers Iíve tried lately.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep golden with a nice poofy head. Little aroma except maybe a hint of grass. Smooth mouthfeel. Almost a metallic sense to the flavo, but mostly a smooth malt without the starchiness. Just a tickle of hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely mis-labeled this beer. Seems much more like an APA/IPA than a golden ale to me. Pretty grainy and dry but not in the good IPA form. Another pretty below avg. beer from Abita.
