COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal winner at the 1994 Great American Beer Festival for Classic English Pale Ale. And then a Bronze in 2003 for English Styled Summer Ale. This Classic English Pale Ale is delightfully refreshing medium bodied golden ale. It is moderately hopped to give the beer a smooth taste and subtle spicy/floral aroma.

Bottle from BevMo. Slightly hazy orange gold color with a decent beige head. Aromas of caramel and citrus. Medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is biting citrus over caramel. Finish is a bit flatter, but there remains a good amount of bitter. More hop than I expected.

brokensail (10741) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Clear golden pour with a white head. Floral hops, grainy sweetness, bread, and a hint of biscuit. There’s a lot of yeast, some lemon zest, and grass. The taste is a bit tart and lemony. Lots of grain, grass, and a moderate sweetness. Some light floral hop notes and yeast with a tangy finish.

hopscotch (9063) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle... Cloudy light golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is earthy and full of citrusy, piney hops. Slightly oxidized. Great balance, flavor wise. A whisper of pungency from the oxidation/infection; otherwise, a nice marriage of mild to moderate biscuity malt and a modestly bitter, crisp hop bite. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, fairly clean finish. Kudos to Monger for providing this one!

hopdog (8852) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a light to medium golden color with a huge sized white head. Aromas of floral, caramel, lemons, biscuit and had a fruitiness to it. Tastes of biscuit, citrus, and a lighter fruitiness. Thinner body.

DocLock (7826) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle from beeronthewall. Hazy dark straw pour with 1-finger splotchy off-white head and some orange hues seeping through. The aroma is caramel malty, crisp, with hops, pineapple, black pepper, orange marmalade. Tastes very hoppy, on the dry side, citric, crisp. Almost mouth-puckeringly hoppy and citric and perhaps lacking a bit of malt in the bill, but without a doubt, this is one of the most, if not the most, hoppy and citric golden ales I have yet quaffed, and I enjoyed it a great deal.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours a slightly rich golden with a frothy, clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy grassy green English hops and some faint pale malt. Starts with decent grainy malty body and some soapy piny English hop character toward a mildly bitter floral finish. Fairly true to style, but I’m not a big fan of the hop profile.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle, Brew 1259. Poured lighter golden orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up toasted bready malts topped by a lovely pinch of lemon zest.. great balance of sweet and tangy. The flavor found fruity notes, honey, and sourdough bread at the core with earthy, floral, and lemony bitterness around.. bright and tasty.. well-balanced. Lighter-bodied with a feel that was a touch scratchy and delightfully tart.. felt good. This would make a great session beer.
