COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw-colored Golden beer is capped with a pillowy white had and is light on the tongue. Fruit flows into he flavor with more peach and citrus. Low hop levels give this beer a light and delicate finish. We recommend this brew to those just venturing into craft beer or anyone looking for a refreshing thirst quencher. Durham’s Bryant Bridge crosses over Rt. 147 and is the one lighted with blue LED lights at night. It is the gateway to the Bull City and this is our gateway to drinking craft beer. This ale is available year round. HOPS USED: Goldings, Willamette

Draft at the brewery. To be fair, this was the 5th beer I had from Bull City a few nights back when we closed down the place (including 2 pours of their barley wine, which was solid). Clear yellow pour with a white head. My note says "Meh, this is ok. Nothing special. Kind of bitter in the finish." There ya go.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow white colored body. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of mild lager mild hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

GT2 (8464) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap at source. Weaker white foam. Weak lace. Acid mash nose, some candy, some odd soap. Taste is light biscuit, lemon. Decent thickness. Soapy finish. Feels bland. Toilet cleaner aroma is unfortunate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden color with a small head. Very light in feel and taste. Not a lot of smell or taste to me, and seemed just like an average golden ale.

On tap at the brewer. Yellow pour with a thin white head. Scent is citrus and grass. Taste is citrus, straw and bread.

Drake (8613) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel and grainy malts. The taste is grainy malts with some toastiness, grassy and raisin-like fruit notes. Medium bodied.

Pale yellow in color... Aroma is sweet and light.... Flavor is fairly watery, notes of light malts and cream... Kind of unexciting

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2011
On tap at the brewery, Durham. I expect fairly little from this style in general, but this joint delivers a fairly well rendered and crisp example of the style. Light and fruity hops in the nose, but more heft and dry character in the flavors. Still bright, both in hue and affect and it’s quite sessionable.

freekyp (1490) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2011
A wonderful fruity take on a golden ale. Pours crystal clear golden with a small but resilient white head. Nice lacing. Aroma shows pineapple, peach and wheaty grain notes. Flavor is grainy with a fruity hop profile. Juicy. Finish is lightly dry and balanced.

Ok beer. A lot of wheat punch right off the start with a liitle flower and citrius finish.
