COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the finest two-row malted barley and German variety hops, Ghost River Golden’s mellow, refreshing character is accentuated by Memphis’ soft water. Munich and caramel malts give this beer enough sweetness to balance the crisp, dry finish.

Pours a largely clear, yet sediment laden golden with a thicker, rocky white head that settles quickly, failing to lace. Nose involves hearty bread dough and grassy, spicy hops. Light flavor, with touches of sweet and tart along with a touch more bitterness. Surprisingly substantial body, not heavy by any stretch but more than light, tingly with active carbonation and bitterness. Really a nice session brew, very pilsner-esque, plenty of body and a fair flavor yet quenching, bright and dry.

DRAFT at Firetree in Memphis. Pours a golden yellow with moderate head which fades quickly. Moderately sweet initial taste with minimal hoppiness or bitters. Refreshing.

Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Clear, pale gold with a white head. The aroma has cereal grains with some earthy hops. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a clean finish. This is a decent beer, but nothing exciting.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle courtesy of a stranger at WOB. The beer pours a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pint on tap on Beale St. Irregular head, clear yellow. Light carbonation, soft body, supple. I taste some flour, basement tastes. Other than that, it’s pretty basic.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle (brought back by a friend to NZ). More malt driven, with light caramel flavour, with herbacous notes from the hops. A little light on the palate, but refreshing.

rangerred (891) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Had on tap in Memphis. Beer was a medium gold and slightly hazy with not much in the way of a head. Faint grainy aroma with some wet grass and hay. The flavor had plenty of bread and hay much like a Euro lager. There is definitely a soft wheat characteristic which does help drinkability. Light bitterness. Overall, a pretty forgetable beer. Drinkability is extremely high but flavors are somewhat lacking. Not offensive but not impressive either.

Nice little surprise on tap at Rendevous in Memphis. Great wheaty aroma and extremely smooth on the palate. The wheat flavor is strong and very enjoyable.
