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.

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.
