COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ghost River Golden has a mellow, refreshing character, accentuated by Memphis’ soft water. Munich and caramel malts give this beer enough sweetness to balance the crisp, dry finish. O.G. 1048

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.

Leighton (17469) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at the hotel in Jackson - picked up at Walgreens, West Memphis. Pours clear yellow-gold with a fluffy, white head. Simple bready pale malts in the nose, a little straw. Light sweet flavour with hints of floral hops, crispy cereal, white bread, a little meringue. Light bodied with average carbonation. OK balance on the finish, with more crispy cereal, pale bread, biscuit, hay. An easygoing golden.

On tap at Rum boogies, Memphis. Slight sweet grainy malt with maybe a hint of dryness from hops. A pretty clear yellow body. Pretty basic golden ale.

On tap at Butcher’s Shop. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is of pale malt and apples. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of pale malt and some hops. The brew tastes like macro.

January 5th, 2014 - Ghost River’s Golden Ale is a lighter take on the style than its Belgian cousins, both in appearance where it glows with a wan yellow energy, and dances with bubbles - and in the nose, where I catch the lightest scents of apple and baking spices, more akin to a cider than a beer. The carbonation is strong, masking some unwelcome corniness, but also making wha little faded and tired apple and pear flavors can be pulled from the brew. The aftertaste is short, ending with an angel food cake taste, but the rest of the brew’s taste is best described as both mild and mostly flavorless.

Draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Germantown, TN. I didn’t know what to expect when I ordered this but I really enjoyed it. If I could get this where I live, it would be a staple

Cunningham (6557) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2015
Golden pour with a rather short lived white head. Not even a white layer. No lacing. Looks like a cider. Caramel malt dominated aroma. Well not to inviting start. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Caramel malty and faint fruity flavor. Tasted better than expected. But will not chase a new one. Just a state tick.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. It has some decent lacing, and is quite carbonated to the end. The aroma is of very sweet rock candy with not much else present in the nose. The taste is of very dry, tart hops with a hint of toasted bread. Not as sweet as I was expecting based on the aroma, and perhaps a little too dry and tart for my liking, especially since it really lacks character other than the tartness (kind of like drinking carbonated water when the soda machine is messed up).
