2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ FiftyFifty. Clear golden pour with white foam. Kind of a husky, grainy nose. Lots of grain, bread, and white grape juice. Meh. Flavor is dang sweet and grainy. Tons of sugar, bread, and fruit juice. Maybe some sweet apple? Why so sweet? Bitter tea leaf finish.

yet another nondescript golden ale added to the database for the non-craft beer drinking masses. pretty simple across the board. nothing bad but quite boring. not a lot going on...balanced sweetish fruity malt and a touch of hops. 15 ibu, 4.2%."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 ounce sample at the brewpub. Grassy, lightly floral hop aromas present with some nice biscuity maltiness. A light spiciness is also in there, too. Pretty good. Transparent golden-yellowish body with a small white head. Lightly spicy, peppery, crisp and hoppy to start. Middle has a nice creamy, grainy, and biscuit malty flavors. Nice, crisp, spicy noble hop flavors to finish. Well-crafted.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ FiftyFifty. Pours a clear, bright golden color; thin white head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Nice aroma of Belgian sugars, cotton candy, and soft honey; generous, estery nose. Medium mouthfeel: following the aroma, lots of Belgian sugars and cotton candy esters upfront; starts to wear a bit on the palate after a while, with an emergent, mildly astringent bitterness. Lengthy finish: dry hop bitterness and a touch of esters.
