DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2012
Tap, Bohemian Hall, Queens, 17/12/11. Burnished orange; light haze, slim lid. Light apricot/dried fruit nose, a litttle candy. Grassy and anonymous. Tickle of citrus and candy cigs. Not a Golden Ale, just a lager in my book, but then Iím from England where the style can outhop a US DIPA. Not bad, just bland. Gave up and had the Oatmeal Stout instead.

Unpleasant color, overly hoppy brew. I am not an IPA fan, and this wasnít up my alley. Not an IPA but seemed much the same to me.

nike (967) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap at a local beer store. Overall it is sweet, the style really doesnít come through, too fruity for a blond. Has a citrus taste, heavy wheat, but some taste of flour or bread hops....not sure. Decent co2, not well balanced. It is drinkable, not one I would seek out, but I would drink this again.

Bierkrug (2133) - - JUL 23, 2011
355 ml bottle in New York. Amber color, little head. Fake citrus aroma. Hoppy unnatrual sweet sticky taste. Palate is hoppy. This is the typical Ice Cream flavored brewery stuff. Not good. As with many breweries here they try to make many beers unable to perfect any.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2008
tap from tasting room- pours yellow, tastes oddly smokey/toasty- maybe some of the toasted lager in this one. Not that good.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours golden, like the name. Aroma of some light floral scents. Flavor strongly of wheat. It is almost as if it is a fruit beer that is simply waiting for the right fruit to come along. Rather sweet either way.

jcwattsrugger (11086) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
on tap-pours a white head with yellow color. Aroma is grain, musty-funky. Taste follows with some hops. OK carbonation.

beastiefan2k (2441) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Sample at the brewery tasting room. A rather unattractive yellow color with a thick head. Has a deceptively medicinal and herbal aroma. However, all this leads to a surprising and deliciously sweet malt flavor. Slightly biscuit-y a la a British bitter mixed some strong sweet malts. Mouthfeel has a perfect level of felt carbonation. A surprising delight. 6/2/8/4/15

Rerate: definitely a different batch and a very different beer. Not so unattractive yellow anymore. Taste is a lot more hoppy (some citrus some herbal hops) and less on the biscuit. Still very quaffable though. 7//3/7/3/15.
