COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our golden colored ale for those who want a lighter bodied beer, yet still flavorful. Like the big commercial beers, only better! Touched with Cluster and Hallertau hops.

BREWMUSKCLES (2226) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2011
on tap at the Bethlehem Brewery Musikfest 2011. Puzzling because i enjoyed a sweetish brew bustling full of fresh malt flavor with a nice tingly spicy and flavorful German style hop finish right on the tip of the tongue. mild slick palate with vibrant carbonation and fruitpunch for added character it is refreshing and just right for lunchtime on a warm afternoon. just a nice golden ale with a proper one and one half inch white head that lasts a bit.

It’s beer flavored beer. Pours golden from tap. Not a lot of aroma to speak of. Slightly oily mouthfeel. No real hop or malt flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. Made for bud drinkers, I’m guessing.

On tap at bethlahem brew works. Light and refreshing. Flavors were more pronounced and cleaner than macro lighter bodied beers, enjoyable... But while your at brew works try the richter red or esb.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
On tap, Bethlehem location. Slightly hazy pale gold with a one cm foamy white head. The nose is pretty light, but clean, just a little bit of bready malt. The flavor is similarly light, just a touch of pale malt and a light Ale fruitiness. Light bodied and fizzy with a little lingering doughy malt. Light and refreshing? I guess so.

alobar (2762) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Been going to BBW for year. Never tried this beer. Pours a clear yellow with no head. Aroma of hops and cereal. Smooth on the palate with a slightly bitter hops taste. Decent for what it is.

I thought this beer was crap. Very sweet and very poor. all around. I was shocked that this was a beer they choose to showcase at a beer fest.
