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.

Gotmos got a keg of this last night for a party, which gave me the opportunity to rate this "properly." Since this beer is tap only drinking only 14-16oz in a bar can’t possibly provide enough of a sample to understand the beer. So I sat there trying to drink this beer from the beginning of the keg to the end, the really understand the nature of this brew. It pours well looking enough with a clear, bright golden color and a large strong head. The beer is definitely Belgian inspired with a nice yeast sweetness followed by peach skin and orange like flavors. The hops play a background role and contribute light citrus and light sweet hoppiness to back up the Belgian aspect. The none Belgian qualities are represented in a much cleaner malt profile. Its easy to drink, I mean I tried to sit for hours and drink the whole container so I could not "cheat": a rating out of it but eventually I had to pass out.
1/2 keg from Gotmos, mason jar.

Thanks to Spacecoyote’s crew at Weyerbacher for pouring this one. Pour out golden color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of fruit, banana, yeast and some citrus. Taste is nice and well balanced, citrus, sweet fruits and some yeast and slight spice also.

Had it on tap the other night. There are some nice flavors, but unfortunately they are masked by just as many off flavors. The beer is too bitter for its own good.

Draft at House of Brews. Very good. Pours slightly cloudy golden body. Aroma is like a lesser Fin du Monde. Taste is citrus, malt, and very smooth.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Draft at CL. Pours a golden body with a light white head. Feels kinda sticky with a sweet malty aroma and some hop bitterness. Some earthy grassy flavors amongst the malt, a touch of citrus fruit as well. A solid choice whenever you at the brewery.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2008
On tap. Poured a slightly cloudy blond color. The aroma hinted of pears and malt to me. Thin mouthful, almost watery, which definitely detracted from the flavor for me. Has some nice belgian style notes in the finish, with some bitterness. Maybe I got a bad pour, and need another try, might re-rate at some point.

malrubius (2452) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Bright golden with slight haze, lasting white head and lace. Herbal spicy yeasty aroma. Peach/apricot/banana sweet fruitiness with spicy herbal finish. Medium body and carbo. Complex and quaffable, but not wimpy. The addition of hoopy harbalness makes for a satisfying session belgian blonde.

From a growler filled at Whole Foods: pours a hazy golden color with a trace of white head, aroma of spices and citrus, taste is about the same. Wasn’t as great to me as some of the other Captain Lawrence brews I’ve had.

Surprisingly flavorful, golden bodied brew, with a hint of citrus. Very satisfying. don’t let the lager look fool you--this is one fine brew.

A growler that’s been untouched for far too long, with thanks to john_adam2002 for this most excellent bonus. Worried if there’s any carbonation left, but thought I might as well try it. Filled to the top and sealed, been sitting at the back of the fridge for weeks, so here goes. Pours a clear golden with a one finger bright white head and lots of effervescent bubbles rising, so that’s a good sign, lots of spots of lace. Aroma is bright and spicy, with coriander, orange peel, and some light citrus hops. Flavor is also spicy, with some sweet citrus. A good interplay with the spice, citrus and sweet. Enjoyable and tasty on a warm day, and held up very well; thanks again Adam!
