2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not nearly as crappy as most of their other offerings. Poured a pale golden yellow with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Light hops and malt in the nose...maybe a bit too cold at the moment. Flavor has a nice citric hop edge with some token sweet malts hanging around. Thin bodied....dry finish. Not bad...decent to swill while watching some football.

This reminds me of Yeungling Lord Chesterfield a bit. Nice golden ale aroma with light, lemonflower citrus hop notes over a slightly taffyish malt. Screw-off cap, OK label, golden ale, three-finger beady head in a pilsener glass. Flavor is mostly dry, and not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. There was something in the beerís flavor profile, however, that absolutely screamed out for chili. I mean, it was as plain as the nose on yer face. This is a beer that the beer snob and the beer slob could come to terms on.

Like sex in a canoe. Itís ale-light The nose is nice, the favor is citrus bitter but there is very little of it. Over all a thin, unremarkable beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz. bottle. Pours a clean golden honey with tiny bubbles fastly rising to the surface where a tiny frothy white head quickly diminishes to a film with lined lacing. Sweet yeast and malt (straw, meal) aroma flanked by some fruity hop notes, apple and grape. Sweet light malt and yeast body with a low bitter and acidic fruity hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy, almost creamy palate. This beer would make a great treat on a hot day to quench a thirst.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This gold ale pours a medium gold blond color from a 12 oz bottle. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied gold ale. Malts are fruity and sweet, caramel and toffee. Hops are slightly floral and citrusy. Some very lively carbonation in this beer. Drinkable, but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Yeah, it looks good coming out. Clean, golden color. Not much aroma at all - what is there is a flowery. The flavor is good, hoppy with lemon/citrus flavors. A great beer to drink and enjoy.

nice looking pour. clouded tan with a copper tinted head. aroma is the expected medicianal rubber floral hop i tend to notice in most abita brews. flavor is caramel coated cardboard a bit of grassy lemon in the finish, drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin ring of white head. Semi-sweet grainy, mildly floral aroma. Starts with a hint of sugar, some dry, full crystal malt and noble hops with a dry grainy finish. A fairly bland and uninteresting beer.
