Pours golden with a thick layer of foamy head. Aroma is light citrus hops, even grapesque, like a white wine. Flavor is fairly nondescript. It is crisp and there are no off-flavors but there is nothing unique to this beer, it is simply a nice and easy-drinking pale ale.

Majek (384) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Hazy, orange colour with medium and diminishing head. Medium intesive aroma of citrus, pale ale malt with earthy and resinous background. Taste is slightly sweet with medium and lingering bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation. Low to medium body. Overall: not bad one, but nothing special.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: Pours a hazy light golden amber with a foamy 2-3 finger white head. Nice head retention. Excellent lacing. Smell: Caramel malt and sweet floral hops. Taste: Much like the aroma, caramel malt is dominant up front followed by sweet citrus in the middle and bitter lemon zest and grapefruit at the finish. Aftertaste is mildly bitter. Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. You could knock back several of these with no problem. Perfect summer beer. Overall: Very solid pale ale. I thoroughly enjoyed this. The unique balance of hops and malt make this a great beer. Highly recommend trying this one.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Cloudy appearence like a hefe with a moderate size head. Has the grainy hop taste I like, but is not as complex as I love.

This is a great, if simple, beer. Actually, it is deceivingly simple and is not what most drinkers would normally expect in the more amber american pale ales produced these days. This beer is brilliantly clear and gold in color with a big white head. It has a wonderful hop aroma with hints of malt coming through. It has a nearly perfect palate for what it is trying to support -- a smooth, mellow maltiness with a punch of hops thrown in there as well. Nothing overwhelms anything else in this beer. Crisp, light, dry, refreshing.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Gold like the name would suggest. Very hoppy. Pretty grainy with good malts for balance. Finishes pretty clean.

Golden color with large lasting head.Very little aroma of grain.Very malty flavor that needs a little something. Finishes with a long hoppy taste.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - OCT 5, 2003
color is golden with a little haze. had a pretty long lasting head. Pretty drinkable and easy to swallow. Seemed to be on the expensive side though.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2003
This poured a nice golden color with a very light and bubbly head. The aroma was of hops and a touch of caramel, citrus and pine. A very bubbly and astringent palate. The taste was earthy, piney and lightly hopped. The end was bitter and drying. Not too great...not terrible.
