Great appeance and nice head. I jsut don’t like the choice of hops. Seems a little harsh to me and for the price not worth it.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Malt and wet grain aroma. Nice silky palate but rather disappointing taste of bland malts followed by a satisfying whole grain bread finish.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/7/10. Pours a clear gold with a medium off-white head. Aroma is cascade hop and a bit of malt, but mostly non-descript. Decent hop and malt balance in the flavor, but the hops don’t have much character. Not a bad beer, but kinda boring.

joeneugs (3108) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Pours gold with a thin off white head. The aroma is nondescript with some mild notes of fruity hops and toffee. The flavor is the same with a strong alcohol presence considering the ABV. Tasty, but a lackluster finish.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2010
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a minimal white head. Aroma is mild hops fruity. Bitter, dry hoppy and light roasted malt flavoured. Dry toffee like note from the malt. Bitter and mild fruity finish.

11th October 2008. GABF. Hazy gold beer. Champagne dry but the hops are tepid and apologetic. Nothing special!

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Draft at the brewpub! Clear gold with a small glass lacing off white head. Nose is floral hops light pine, and caramel. Flavor was lightly bitter with white pepperiness.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
Strong malty aroma and flavor are what define this brew. Good notes of carmel and a nice sweetness. Not bad.

Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma with some hints of citrus. Sweetish malty and slightly bitter hoppy flavor. Has a sweetish malty hoppy finish.
