I love gooooold.... Cloudy gold that is, small white cap and casky carbonation, ooh sneaky sexy mofos. Immediately pleasant and quaffably drinkable with a refreshing-slash-bracing palate of clean malt fruit sweetness and hop dryness, very solid Buffalo dudes. Herbal and grassy and yet not annoying. Also the cheapest thing on the menu, being very good besides an alternative to some beer you came in early for because it’s rare. Relax hombre. It’s all good. Also the aroma is fresh and pleasantly meadow sweet. I mean it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Sampled at TapNY, 4/26/14
Aroma: The nose is clean and light hoppy, some grapefruit/citrus hops, and pale malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a thin head and scattered lace
Flavor: It is mid-sweet balanced by a clean bitterness, similar to the nose component-wise
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a clean mouthfeel, and a bit of dryness on the finish
I found this to be a solid, though kind of light example of an APA. Wasn’t quite as good as the beers I remember from Community Beer Works at Tap in 2013.

On tap at the Blue Monk last night after taking Kara and Andy to dinner at the Liberty Hound, they bought me a beer at the Blue Monk. They were of course out of the Evil Twin Imperial Stout that they are still advertizing on their website. This was good for it’s style. Plenty of hops in the aroma and in the flavor. Very light and drinkable.

Pint at Blue Monk on 7/7/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Malty nose with notes of lemon and biscuit. Malty flavor at first, turning to slight citrus and pine before a grassy and biscuity finish. Nice APA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My 4900th rating! Bottle [1L] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. It’s fitting that a Community Beer Works beer would be a milestone as I was an excited Kickstarter donor for them. I’m thrilled to be drinking their beer now. Pours a murky, deep yellow-gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Aroma: Yeah, hops! Lots of resiny, citrusy and floral hops. Flavour is also quite hoppy -- catty, citrusy and resiny, and with a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied. Very good stuff, well done fellas!

A clean yellow ale with a white head. The aroma is hoppy mixed with an entire green garden, very fresh. The taste is clean and pure with a very robust amount of hops, perhaps a pale ale that drinks like an IPA. This is a really nice beer to drink everyday.

[4635-20120802] Tap. Mild wet grains and cocoa powder aroma. Clear, bright orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Powdery grain malt flavour has a smooth yeasty finish. Medium body. Not a huge fan of the hops but still interesting. (7/3/7-/3/14) 3.4
