3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is a strange mix of toffee and floral. Med minus body. Flavor starts fruity, gets a little mixed hop, and then goes a little wheaty. The pleasures are too subtle for me.

Pours dark golden in color with a small light head. Smells malty, mildly hoppy and of some fruit. Taste is mildly malty, hoppy, and also some small fruit. A small bitter finish. A decent beer.
I had from a bottle.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Slightly hazy dark golden brew with decent head. Smells of citrus like a cleaning product and tastes like a lemon lime kind of drink. Other than the massive citrus hops there is not much else going on for this one. Too thin a body, too hoppy for chugging, low ABV so can’t get hammered on them. Nope just not seeing much to make me want more of this brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This a very average beer for me. Faint aroma of hops and pale malt. Normal golden color with a white fizzy head. Light palate with strong carbonation. Light malt flavor in the background with a slight hop presence and a sharp finish. Decent with food.

12oz bottle from Kroger in Grandview. Orange gold pour with a thin white head and sudsy retention. Aroma of pine, herbal, apple. Tastes of resiny citrus, tropical fruit, grass, caramel. Pretty straightforward, but nice enough.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From variety pack. Mild peak of grass and hop, earthiness and citrus. I probably wouldn’t pick this out directly. Not bad for a blonde.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
light hazy amber copper. Kinda dark for a golden ale. Nice hop body. All around balanced brew. Reminds me more of a session ipa than a golden ale. I’d drink this regularly.
