2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the source. Clear gold in color, ample carbonation level. Aroma is weak grain and straw, nothing more.
The flavor is really isn’t much different base tastes like German Pils malt with the straw and grain. Body is real light and thin. What more can I really say about a Golden ale? With this one nothing more.

Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are quite buttery with a hint of grass and biscuit malt thrown in. Something is wrong with this batch. Would like to try again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well... this is the only regular Faust brew that I’ve never had. Time to drink it. Light, but bright, golden yellow in color, it has a thin, almost soapy bright white head. The nose shows some nice, stiff hops and pilsener malts, leaving a great overall aroma that’s fresh, refreshing, and flavorfully light. A pilsener-like malt flavor and soft bitter finish shows up soon after it enters the mouth, with the in-mouth flavor made up mainly of a fresh grain and soft palated, sharp flavored, very distinctive hops. It’s slightly thicker than your average Texas golden ale. I like it! Tops my list of golden ales.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear and golden in color with a thin white head. Mild, slightly fruity and grainy aroma. Basic grain and slightly caramel flavor. Rather thin overall.

I am not a blond fan, and this one is not anywhere near my top list. It is bitter and very sharp. The color is very light blond. It has a high head, like the Walter’s Brown, but is not flavorful or strong enough. I am prejudiced towards lighter beers, so take my words with a grain.
