Dick’s Golden Ale is one of the lightest beers we produce. That doesn’t mean it is light in flavor! This traditional British golden ale is brewed with 2-row malted barley and a touch of crystal malt, balanced with a substantial amount of hops. This recipe is one of Dick’s originals; a light, refreshing, crisp lawnmowing beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden/copper color with a small white head on it that disappears quickly. Nose isn’t all that strong, actually; there’s just a little bit of grains in there that I can get. Taste has corn, and seems a lot like a lager to me. Not really all that appealing.

jgb9348 (4942) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Slightly hazy deep honey coloured body with a thick, luscious three centimetre tall off-white head - very creamy and nice. Aroma of pale malt, light lemons and cleanser, pledge, and a hint of herbal and floral hops. Light-bodied; Strong relatively pungent malt note with less than pleasant flavours, some funky grass and herbal notes and not much of anything else to speak of - no complexity, no sweetness, no horrible bitterness - just a slighty decent flavour with not much going on. Aftertaste shows more malt and funk than anything else - okay. Overall, an acceptable beer that doesn’t make me want to drink this ever again, but if you are from out of state and haven’t seen this before (just like me), definitely try it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington [State] on 10-February-2013 for US$1.66 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 14-March-2013.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 On tap at Blind Tiger with Andy, James, Streets, Baron. Pour is not golden. It’s amber. Head is minimal and aroma is lame, ricey and macro lager. Taste is somewhere between slightly off-putting and okay. Starts off with a quick carbonation blast. Nothing to note on the palate and aftertaste is quick, which is good considering I do not get any tastes that I’d want to stick around.

Growler. Thanks, BrewDad! Pours a crystal clear medium gold. Nice decent creamy white head with plenty of lace. When cold, it has a vacant nose, but after just a minute or two of warming, it shows mild nutty, grassy, earthy, and piney notes. Creamy medium body. Nice nuts, grass, and mild hop on the mid-palate. Very drinkable, and a little more life to it than there seemed to be when cold.

Well first of all this beer looks like Budweiser with less carbonation. It has a bland taste and lacks flavor. I'll definitely pass on this beer again.
