Couleur dorée, moyenne quantité de mousse adhérant partiellement. Timides arômes de grains sous une touche fruitée. Pas beaucoup de saveurs, légèrement sucrée et maltée, houblons floraux. Finale propre et exposant une faible amertume. Un bémol sur toute la ligne. En fût, Rock Bottom, Denver

Bill Becker (490) - 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 don’t 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.
