3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
<b>Unknown Date</b>: Brooklyn Bright Golding Ale is transparent gold n tolor with a dense, creamy, white head that leaves thick lacing. There is a light to moderate level of carbonation. The aroma is what I can only describe as creamy pale malts and there it has a slight buttery/Diacetyl flavor. However, this beer is balanced by a crisp bitterness in the finish. It is slightly dry overall with a hint of peat smoke in the finish as well. This is a decent beer that I would like to try again someday...
<i>Draught (pint). Rating #29 for this beer.</i>

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Hop Devil. Pours a slight chilll haze, medium gold with a whtie head and some lace. Aroma actually has a moderate amount of Diacetyl with its bready doughy malt character, and some herbal earthy hops. Bready doughy, some citric wheaty hints, toasted malts, more diacetyl- light butteryness, and a clean floral hop bitterness. Wierd- seems like it coud be an English pale ale, but the body is a bit big, and is a bit more malt in there- typical english diacetyl which I would have preferred if it was absent, but whatever- it’s english.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap where I work. Crystal clear gold pour. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and grains. More of the same on palate with a smooth, buttery flavor that actually works well here with the wheaty kind of flavor. Hoppy and balanced. Alcohol undetectable. Dry finish that cleans up well. An interesting ale.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Hazy golden color with a puffy head. Aroma is floral and balanced with a touch of butter and some light fruity notes. Flavor is well balanced. Begins with some floral and ester notes and a light and fruity middle with a sweet and buttery finish. Not a bad sipping beer.

draft- definite sweetness and ester quality that my wife really enjoyed. Nice full mouthfeel. A smooth drinking strong ale, that is worth looking into.
