COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let the golden color fool you - this isn't your father's lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness. Sensory Profile: Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer. Food Pairing: A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Medium gold, clear, covering lace. Full body, smooth texture, light but dense flavor, rich and hot mouthfeel with vivid carbonation, lingering palate. Bitter, crisp, off-dry, well balanced. Delicious hop flavors, complex, resiny, floral. Great beer even for non-beginners. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a deep golden color with good clarity and some visible carbonation. It is topped off with a small just off white head. This head slowly settles to a thin wispy film covering. Smell: In the nose I get some light maltiness with mild floral and citrus hop notes. Taste / Palate: The flavor has a good malt base with a slight clover honey like sweetness. This is balanced with floral, citrus and grassy hop bitterness. The carbonation feels well balanced to body making it very drinkable.

Bottled. Pour into a tulip, hazy yellow color, white frothy head. Aroma is traditional belgian spices, yeasty, banana, clove, wheat, coriander. Fairly standard. Flavor is lemon candy sweetness, candied sugar, belgian spices, hops, actually pretty nice flavor. A little less boring.

Golden yellow color, naturally. Puffy white head. Aroma is Belgian spices, with some melted plastic phenols. The flavor is some more of that plastic, but it’s also lots more spiciness, like Grains of Paradise. Feels prickly. It’s a very light beer, full of flavor, some of it a little iffy.
