Poured from the 12oz can into a shaker glass. Golden color with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is a touch sweet and grainy with some grassy and floral hops. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. OK, not great.

Draft sample at the Walnut brewery, as Walnut Buffalo Gold, 11/23/15
From the notes: Decent blonde ale with some light hop notes on the aroma and some malty hints too. Similar flavor. Lighter body and easy drinking. Not too bad, but nothing super memorable.

Appropriate to style in every way. Pours a deep gold with a creamy consistent head. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming, and is balanced by a strong malt backbone. Perfect for what it is.

snoworsummer (4303) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Draft at Old Cís. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head and decent lacing. Smells fruity, like light wheat, and light citrus hops. Tastes like sweet light wheat, caramel malt, and citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation.

Bill Becker (730) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 23, 2015
It certainly is golden, and clear, and gives my glass a nice 1 finger head of foam with good lacing..cellar temp. I get a mild aroma or aromas of hops like in lemony. A bit of malt behind it; not much going on smell wise. The taste is of slight lemon citrus and a rather unpleasant vegetal, rotting vegetal maltiness that besides that, gets really watery in the finish. Good enough mouthfeel. This is pretty terrible overall. Glad I only picked up 1 can of it in my mixed 6er.

Boulder Buffalo Gold has a very thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, brilliant gold appearance, with tiny white particles throughout and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of cream, mild and sweet bread crust, cream cheese cake icing, and hop oil. Taste is of all of those elements wit low, yet noticeable hop bitterness to round it out. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Boulder Buffalo Gold finishes crisp, highly drinkable, and exceptionally refreshing. RJT

Draft. A- Citrus, peaches, slightly bitterness, wheat, honey. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Peaches, citrus, slight bitterness, wheat, grains. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Very refreshing. I donít really like much that Boulder Beer does but this one was pretty solid. Not a ton going on but for a Blond Ale, it had some nice juicy notes and a little bitterness to add to it.
