Draft at the source. Hazy pale yellow color, white head. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is bitter, can’t read my handwriting.

They were calling it "Goldenrod" but I think this is the beer. Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a cloudy golden amber color with a large creamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was faint with tangy apple and citrus notes. The flavor was tangy and a touch bitter with a bit of yeast, a hint of fruity hops, citrus and apple. Medium length tangy yeast, fruity hops and apple finish. Light body. Meh.

12 oz cup at Brew Skies Festival: Pours golden orange with a light head. Aroma slightly sour malts, grassy. Taste is robust with a nice caramel malt. Slightly salty with a sweet finish and some bitter. Pretty good offering for a local brew!

we ordered a gold ale, an ipa and a marzen when visiting this "brewpub"...when the beers came, we couldn’t distinguish between the 3. all tasted like water. the only difference was in the color. truly awful.

Tap @ Blackwater Brewing Co. (Davis, WV).
Amber color. Thin white head. Smooth creamy. Finishes better than the IPA. Aroma is bready malt. Nice malt backbone. Very well balanced. A bit of diacytl in the finish.

Draft. Very Drinkable and pleasant. A good beer with the featured German fare at the Blackwater restaurant. Obviously, golden in color with a clean white head. Natural, earthy and wheaty in flavor. One of only two selections that were available during my visit to Blackwater. A run of the mill gold/blonde - but I wasn’t complaining.
