I am still amazed how few of you like a Belgian or German- golden ale. It is one of my favorites and this is a great example. It has a nice dry aftertaste. flowery nose and beautiful color. The taste is semi sweet and very refreshing. Did everyone else have a different beer??

Citrus and bread on the nose. Golden pour with a nice frothy white head. Taste of bread with a nice malt on the finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. I feel this is an under rated beer.

Very good. Out of the Flying Dog brewery, this was their best. It has a distinct American-type, mass-produced beer flavor with a little something extra. I recommend this and the other beers by this brewer.

A very good beer! Nice pour, good color (I prefer a darker color to beer but this is called "golden ale"). Great taste. A good example of "quality" beer. Nice job.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Lightish gold pour in a kolsch glass with about an inch of fluffy lasting white head. Aroma was of sweet malty, corn, and honey soaked grain. Taste is very crisp and refreshingly carbonated with a quick mild bitter bite up front followed by a delicious sweet creamy aftertaste. I love this beer, and this as about as good a kolsch as the others such as Lawnmower, that I really enjoy. Not a beer snob beer, probably, but a simple flavored refreshing beer, with a great thirst queching easy to drink feel to it. Sometimes you just want a nice crisp refreshing non light beer with a simple taste, and to me, this is one of those that I loved and look forward to more of.

On tap at the Rake, 21st Sept 2010. Clear gold, little bit of head. Nice fresh linen aroma. Very refreshing and palate cleansing. Good citrus notes on the tongue and the nose. Superb.

I see that the majority of people don't prefer this beer, but I really liked it. The appearance was that of a normal American yellow beer and the smell was the same. The difference was that this beer had very little "bite" as most American beers do. This also meant that there was not much to the taste, but I rate it high because it was very easy to drink.
