COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after its golden color and effervescence, the complex yet smooth tast of Golden Chaos lives up to its name! Golden Chaos is a Belgian style golden ale made from fresh imported German and English hops, brewed using the finest American rock candy, giving this fine ale a fruity aroma taste that leads to a surprisingly dry finish. The subtle notes of plum, apricot, and pear achieve a perfect balance of fruitiness, spiciness, and hoppiness.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Darker straw, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Wheaty like nose, a bit of must or barnish funk, but slight.   On the tongue it has a wheaty base, lacks carbonation, but feels slightly musty with a bit of a fruity background.   Not vibrant, but thankfully not mealy like so many other examples.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes wheaty, slightly fruity, and a little dank.   Could use more carbonation, but as is its not too bad.

Yikes! Pours murky muddled yellow with no head to speak of. Completely off form the clear sparkling yellow with effervescence that I expect in a "golden ale" Aroma is clove oddly hefe-ish and sweet pear. Taste is cloyingly sweet and lacking complexity. Palate is awful thick and chewy with so little carbonation it just dies on your tongue. I wouldn’t order this again if I was using some one elses mouth.
