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.

Dogbrick (8507) - 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.

Draft at Flying Saucer Memphis. Yep, it’s golden alright. Could be Miller Lite. Uber-malty, if solid and sweet. I guess this is a decent alternative to the macros, solidly made, but don’t look for a super beer. (#4053, 12/18/2010)

Several bottles throughout our trip to Memphis. Fairly light and dry with a bit of crack malt an mild bitterness. A bit grainy but no major flaws.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition festival. Pours golden / yellow with a dense off-white head. The aroma has grainy pale malt, a hint of chalk and is on the powdery side. Medium / light slick oily body with mild sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with a light toasted malt, powdery notes and something that seems like a spice giving it a dullness. The finish is mushy with non-descript flavors. Fair.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at GABF, new State! Pours a mostly clear deep gold, minimal fluffy head. Nose is butterscotch and a floral iced tea note. On tasting, the iced tea is mostly what I get and then some light buttery notes in the background. Should be cleaner and have more hop pop to it, really. The iced tea is distracting. Okay.

Music City Brewer’s Fest 2008 Firm off-white head over a clear, deep gold body. Clean fresh malt aroma, slight hops. Smoothly sweet with a nice soft bitterness. Very good for a style that doesn’t often excite me.
