Tap at Ted’s. Orange-gold with a fine head. Nose of minerals, grapefruit, a touch of caramel. Quite simple. More citrus in the flavor. A decent, simple golden ale.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep golden color with a tiny head of white foam. The head fades super fast leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a bready aroma with a good showing of a caramel. Along with these smells comes some fruitiness of harvest fruits and a little bit of a hay smell. Taste- The taste begins with a rather thick bready taste mixed with a little bit of doughiness. Some fruitiness of harvest fruits (peach apricot and pear) develop more as the taste advances. Other flavors of a light herbal hop nature as well as tastes of caramel and a rather off musty tastes later come on. In the end, one is left with a odd, and slightly disagreeing malty and sort of sweet, but strangely hopped and musty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is slightly thicker with a carbonation level that is rather low. For the bready and sweet tastes of the brew it was OK, but a higher carbonation would have helped hide the must and made for a more refreshing brew. So overall it was just OK. Overall – Not really one I would necessarily recommend. It has an odd aftertaste and the flavors don’t really meld all that well together. Not one I will go back to any time soon.

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 (4809) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Draft at Old C’s. 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 (820) - 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.
