Bottle (12oz). Poured clear gold with a smallish white foamy head. Slightly vegetal grainy stale malt nose with some stale hops, a little fruity (apricot, orange); sweet. Taste is a fruit/grain blend - apricot, pineapple and orange juice - flat mouthfeel, decent body, no linger to speak of - ehhh.

Nothing special here. This is a light non-hoppy pale ale that has nothing very distinguishing about it (thatís probably why is sells well in this market). I had this out of a keg that was offered at an office party. This a beer that gives the appearance of being a micro and the taste to go along with it. Donít get me wrong...I would swill this any time over the marco coors beers...ok, maybe not blue moon but still....

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2005
12oz bottle pours golden and somewhat hazy with a short white head.. Aroma is grapefruit and a touch of apricot. Flavor is a nice blend of grapefruit hops and grainy caramel malts. Palate is smooth and somewhat on the watery side with a fair bitter finish. Drinkable but nothing outstanding.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours a light copper color with a thin head and some lacing. Aroma has a light apricot floral hop character with light malt background. Slightly tart with an ok finish- and slightly earthy like some english golden ales.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Hazy yellow pour... slightly more white head than other Boulder beers Iíve tried lately. Aroma of citrus, toffee, hops and some grass. The taste begins slightly bitter with a rather odd flavored middle... seems like a mix of stale, dry grass with some citrus and topped off with a little bit of hops. Very light-bodied and bitter at the end.

Grapefruit and orange citrus notes to the floral, hop forward aroma. Hazy, deep golden body is topped by a low white head that coats the glass. Pleasant grainy malt sweetness is joined by orange citrus, floral hop flavours and light finishing bitterness. Light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at Rock Bottom Denver as Rock Bottom Buffalo Gold with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 13, 2005
The bottle poured a clear, amber colored beverage with an ample creamy head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was mostly of hops. There was very little malt aroma present. The hops aromas were citrus-like reminding me of grapefruit. The body was light to medium with soft carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off slightly bitter with a slight sour edge to it. The finish was medium in length and had the same sour edge with a slight bitterness.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle. Pours a rich gold with an aroma that reminds me of Grapenuts. Flavor is sweet and floral, with a sprinkling of honey throughout. Very oat branish taste that doesnít offend. Nice lacing around the glass. Palate is slick. Very good beer; definite repeat.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy golden with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is very light with flowery hops. Taste is very smooth. I like the light cabonation. Slightly sweet and watery, juicy. Iím not a huge fan of the style, but for a blonde ale itís very drinkable.

Clear, golden, fat white head. Meaty aroma with some cooked squash. Tinney, metallic flavor with some honey notes.
