yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2009
Pours medium amber with decent white head that retains ok. Nose has some metallic prickly components and a whiff of honey. Palate has cereal grain, BMC-malt like character, with unpleasant but light hops to balance it out. Not as much honey as one would expect.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Light amber with a nice off white head. A lightly hoppy mix with honey, light maltiness. Taste is light hops, interesting sweetness to it, a bit of an off taste in the beer.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a one finger creamy beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is caramel, honey and light earthy hops. Taste is caramel, light honey and some resin in the finish. Medium mouth feel. Decent beer.

alexanderj (3331) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle. Poured an orange, bronze color with a small, but compact off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, honey, bread and some floral hints. For the first time with this brewery, I was a bit disappointed. In all fairness though, I was probably expecting too much from a golden ale. Flavor was a bit too cloying, with a lot of honey and sweet malt. Bready as well, with little hops as expected. Despite my criticism, this is definitely an above average of the style.
