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.

Draft at the Blind Tiger. The aroma is of bananas, sugar, and tropical fruit, and maybe some yeast. The flavor is similar; pretty light and tasty. Very sweet beer overall.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Exactly what the names evokes. Could be used as currency. A golden yellow color with a little fine head. Love coming to Captain. Sweet aroma of candy and sugar with some light wheat and malt. Taste is so smooth and delicious. A little on the wheat side of belgian but it was hot out so it was quite refreshing. Finish does not linger and just begs to be poured again.

Hazy golden. Aroma is lightly spiced, grass, some bread. Well made and well balanced with good flavors, but nothing was really memorable.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Handbottled 12 oz bottle from mystery swap 2.0 (thanks ty5592!).Pours hazy gold with a tiny head. Nose is VERY spicy...coriander, pepper, ginger. Tastes like it smells and ends a little sweet. Lots of pepper in this one! Body is medium, carbonation is low. Too spicy for my taste.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Golden color with a light bready-citrus aroma. Taste is light, yet smooth and sweet - citrus, doughy malts, and a light but pleasant hop profile. way better than the "light offerings" of most brewers.

BREWMUSKCLES (2475) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2011 light sour taste of vegetables and sweet wheat beer that is pungent .sweet. long straw aftertaste and a good full mouthfeel. Nice Belgian type spice aroma of pepper and coriander with yeasty mouthfeel that morphs into different flavors like hop pine foam.
