Clear gold, foamy white head. Aroma of bright citrus. Taste is mild but still vibrant if that even makes sense. Some grass and bitter hop finish. Medium light body, high carbonation.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brought home a bottle from alaska from a friend who went on a cruize. Fresh. Darker than pale lager, but just barely, like yuengling. Thin pond scum head. No visible CO2. Smell is wew, medium hoppy apparent. Initial taste is dull thick mouthcoating, near IPA territory. Quite may I say for a lager lover. Soapy. Creamy soft old fish aged flavors. Heheh, it says golden ale, well, no. Even tho thats what the style is here on RB. Its really an APA;. IMHO.
Not flat just barely above that. Medium bitter medicine finish hangs in there for an average or less time. No way this is a golden. If so, its a bitter golden, yew. Not yer typical Indigo Imp Blonde Bombshell

bottle. Pours orange tinged gold with small white head. Aroma of malt, sweet corn, slight citrus. Crisp hoppy bite, smooth, refreshing, flavorful. Medium bodied, sessionable. This is a beer without alot of stand out flavors but it is not bland or uninteresting. A good session.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Sidewinders Tavern, Jackson, WY. Clear golden, small head. Zesty citric grapefruit aroma. Dry with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Tangerine and lychee carries it to a rather bitter finish. A fresh, hoppy light pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Clear golden yellow with a small white head. Malty aroma with a good amount of citrus and some light biscuit and wheat. Flavor is lightly sweet and malty with wheat and a medium citrus hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a crisp refreshing finish. This is a good one on a hot day, Iím pretty sure this one was fresh because the hops were stronger than I remember, borderline American Pale Ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Hazy blond with chunky sediment. Lasting small white head. Musty malt, doughy yeast, and faint spicy hop aroma. Low bitterness and just a touch of spicy hop flavor. Light malt with a touch of bread and fruity, doughy yeast. A little too chunky in body and not very clean feeling. Pretty blah blond ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Golden pour with minimal head. Somewhat fruity aroma with maybe a pinch of hops. Flavor is light, fruity. Mild sweetness balanced by a very slight hop bitterness. Light bodied, lively carbonation. Itís ok if you like beer that doesnít require thought. Unoffensive, nothing special.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle into English pint. Thanks to brenn79. Nose is sweet and grainy; pretty bland. Pours just a slightly hazy gold hue with a medium head and decent lace. Taste is bland, bland, bland; slightly sweet with no bitterness. Highly carbonated with a grainy aftertaste. Medium bodied. Extremely simple, boring, thirst-quenching sessionable blonde. Definitely not a pale ale in any way.
