COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh, crisp and inviting, this golden ale is a favorite with crab, prawns and salads. The floral aroma of hops is derived from dry hopping during the fermentation process.

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Sample at Alan’s HSC initation. This beer pours a clear golden color with a thin white head that fizzes away quickly. Lightl bready malt and hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet malt and honey, plus some mild hops and spice. The finish is sweet with notes of malt and citrus, and the aftertaste is mildly spiced hops. Overall, the name is misleading on this beer considering the style. Fairly average for what it is.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Pale golden colour and a medium-sized white head. Citrusy and yeasty aromas. Very little obvious hop aroma, but the flavour was still well-balanced. Piney hops and a crisp finish. A good pale ale.

3fourths (8229) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Grainy nose, flavor is rotten vegetables, salty bread and crackers, and soil. Could this be a bad sample? Tastes similar to Alaskan Amber and even the ESB... I just don’t have a taste for these... perhaps they yeast that ABC uses?

2008-09-02. Crisp yellow body with a modest white head. Mild aroma, grassy hops and muted citrus. (6+) Decent bitterness, grassy hops and very mild touches of citrus in the flavour. Average palate. Quaffable. On tap at the brewery, Juneau

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Thanks to Buck Dich for this one. Dark gold pour with medium, frothy white head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, some honey. Tastes malty, with some citrus, hops, and honey at the finish. Smooth and drinkable.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
Pale amber-gold, fully clear; with a medium, just off-white head. Bit of iodium nose, seaweed, pale malts, peanuts. High restsweetness, high grain level. I think "crisp" is the word, with means usually not enough hops, and often adjuncts; There’s hops here, but they are not really assertive. Restsugars give lots of slickness, nearly cloying. Not their best offering IMO.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle at the Desert Rose, bubble-wrapping the Total Wine hoard. Brilliant gold, slim white cap. Juicy hop aroma hinting at lychees and cream, grapefruit, soap and biscuit. Balanced, delicately tropical GA swaying between lychee, grass, buttered crackers and a drying, peanut-type nuttiness. Softly carbonated, crisp and good.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2008
Draught. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear yellow body. Weak apple lemon aroma anf flavor. Fresh and hoppy. High carbonation. Long bitter sweet aftertaste.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a spotty, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly toasted pale malts with a touch of grapefruity hops. Body starts with good malty sweetness well-balanced with a fresh piny hoppiness toward a slightly drier, crisp bittersweet finish. A pretty good APA.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pours clear gold with thin white head. The mild aroma is sweet with malts to go along with a dash or two of citrus hops. The taste seems pretty crisp with modest bitter citrus hops riding above a thin layer of sweet malts. Light crisp refreshing brew.
