Sunrise Golden Ale is our lightest beer, but don’t let that fool you. The malt is clean, light and crisp, with a slight sweetness. The aroma captures the distinct graininess of pilsner malt. Cascade and Mt. Hood hops balance the sweetness, contributing a slight citrus / spicy character. In the finish, the hops give way to a light maltiness. Overall, refreshing and clean, yet somewhat complex.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a thin white head that faded to a bubbly ring. Aroma of grain, cereal, and a light earthy hoppiness, but all were muted. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some soft toasted grain and cereal that leads into a lightly bitter, earthy hoppiness with a soft leafiness that finished with a soft graham cracker sweetness. Moderate carbonation and crisp mouth feel. I think I really need to retry this one, as I think my allergies were messing with my sense of smell pretty good. It was a decent, drinkable beer, it was just a tad bland, although I usually love simple, crisp, drinkable beers.

Gription79 (2828) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Grainy, sulfur, honey, a firm balanced bitterness. A standard "safe" beer at all American breweries. Tasty.

Little on the light side for my taste. Didnt get the citrus/spicy noes as advertised. Not bad. Middle of the road.
