2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 I’m from England where the style can outhop a US DIPA. Not bad, just bland. Gave up and had the Oatmeal Stout instead.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Unpleasant color, overly hoppy brew. I am not an IPA fan, and this wasn’t up my alley. Not an IPA but seemed much the same to me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at a local beer store. Overall it is sweet, the style really doesn’t 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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
tap from tasting room- pours yellow, tastes oddly smokey/toasty- maybe some of the toasted lager in this one. Not that good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

on tap-pours a white head with yellow color. Aroma is grain, musty-funky. Taste follows with some hops. OK carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
