2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 18.05.2014. Poured a slightly hazy golden amber colour with a one- to two-finger off white foamy head that diminished quickly to leave a ring around the glass. Laced OK. High carbonation as seen by lots of medium sized bubbles forming many trails. Aroma dominated by hops. Taste first up with a touch of sweetness but this quickly followed by floral hops and a lingering hops bitterness after-taste. Light body. Smooth with a long dry bitter finish. Not like other golden ales I’ve tried - more of a pale ale.

Tallahassee, Fl - Killearn Liquors - 500 ml WWI hand grenade bottle. Pours a murky light orange with an initial rocky white head that fades quickly. Aroma has a lemony tint to it, hints of vanilla. Flavor has some light sweet toffee notes, a hint of light citrusy lemon bitterness, just a touch of spearmint. Decently thick mouthfeel. Decent blonde ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh, somewhat floral, sweet iced tea aroma - a little lemon, some tannin. Misty, honey gold, white head. Great gilt label, potato masher brown bottle. Biscuity, pleasantly bitter, a little lemon zest, mineral flavors. As with the other brews that I’ve had from CE, this had a really good balance, no overt flaws, and were right in the middle of the strike zone for their styles. Lemony-bitter finish, starchy body, proper carbonation. Killearn Liquors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From Gene’s. LIght and summery, because of the less maltiness the hops leave a distinct bitter after taste. Pale golden color. Serving: Bottle

Bottle at the GJBF 2013 Osaka. Kind of a musty aroma and a clear gold color with a thin white head. Much more bitter than the Taybeh golden ale. It was ok but nothing to write home about.
