COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden Grizzly Ale is brewed within the style of a German Kolsch. A light bodied, moderately hopped ale, with a rich light golden color. This golden ale is a style of beer, which is designed to be light and thirst quenching. It is an excellent accompaniment to an afternoon lunch or the evening meal when the beer drinker chooses to enjoy two or three beers without becoming filled up. This beer is intended to appeal to experienced ale drinkers, as well as novice beer drinkers who have not yet experienced the ale revolution.

[On-tap at Glacier Brewing] Pours clear golden with a small off-white head. Kind of weird character to this one. Solid malt, but almost a chlorine aspect which is really off-putting. The chlorine notes do fade as it warms. I’d be willing to give this one a shot again, but something seemed off with this sample.

Part of the tasting platter @ the brewpub. Clear medium gold, head leaves light lace. Sweet candy corn aroma. Sweet and grainy, very light fruit and marzipan accents. No real bitterness.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 30, 2010
A little fruit in the aroma. Fresh. A nice color. This is citrusy, zesty, with a slightly dry finish. I found this quite enjoyable on a hot Vegas day.

omhper (19657) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2010
Draught at the brewery. Lightly hazy pale yellow, smal head. Neutral nose. Mid sweet with thin body and clean mouthfeel. No bitterness. With neutral flavour and hard mouthfeel it is not really refreshing, and certainly not enjoyable for it’s flavour.

dekester1 (318) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Poured a dark gold with a nice head that faded slowly. A malty aroma that was decent. Taste was of malt and grains with a light hop finish. A decent mouthfeel and overall not too bad.

Twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice golden color. Smooth with hops and some sweetness too. Very drinkable and satisfying. A solid Kolsch from Poson Montana. Thumbs up.
