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.

Pours a clear gold with some head. Nose is nice and sweet. Flavor is equally as good being consistently sweet and never dropping off to anything sour, metallic, or negative at all. Feel is nice and smooth on the liquid with a bit of a thicker touch. Right level of bubble. Extremely drinkable. I kind of feel like this beer could be a gateway beer for people who are wary of Belgian brews. It is also my first trip into the world of Captain Lawrence, and I want more. Beautiful.

Tap at Valhalla. Golden-orange with a little head. Aroma is lightly spicy and floral, maybe some coriander in there. Taste is very bready and yeasty. Some orange/coriander notes come in late. Average mouthfeel and finishes clean, though yeasty.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Courtesy of yobdoog. Thanks, Trevor! Pours a clear, bright golden color; white head with decent retention. Pleasant amounts of Belgian sugar and doughiness and raisins in the aroma; nicely integrated. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; plenty of Belgian sugars and chewy yeastiness and dough; lots of sugar and stickiness. Medium, sugar and dough in the finish; chewy.

In short: A nice and very hoppy grassy blonde Belgian Ale
How: Tap at brewery
The look: Clear blonde body with a small white head
In long: Smooth honeyed bready cereals. Rather aromatic with notes of wild flowers. Fresh wet grass on the nose and in the attack that turns into a dry grassy finish. Discreet fruity notes of grapefruit, critrus, peach and friends. The hopping takes a lot of room in this Belgian Ale and that’s quite alright with me. Totally appropriate beer named after a totally appropriate way to describe a beer.
