egajdzis (5697) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
[2010] Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light oxidation, honey, toasty malts, citrus, spices, and yeast. Taste of citrus, spices, toffee, toast, and alcohol with a semi-sweet finish.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
2010 bottle, over 2 years old at this point. Pours golden with an orange hue and quite a bit of sediment floating throughout giving a hazy outlook. The aroma is my favorite part - sweet Belgian yeast with a bit of toffee and vanilla. Flavor brings some pilsen malt crispiness with blond malty sweet notes and a bit of the bitter hops held on to ride out the palate.

Bottle@home. Small head. Yellow hazy. Honey melon aromas. Dry smooth slight spicy tobacco taste. Short dry sweet finish. Low carbonated. So so.

Starts well. Nice sharp deepish colour and some (damp?) delicate sweetness on the nose.Nice little head which is retained throughout. Unusual palate reflecting a number of layers which don’t just all ccome together. starts slightly acidic leading to a subtle metallic quality followed by a somewhat distant thin (runny?) diluted citrus quality. Some unpleasant rubberness too. Afraid this beer just doesn’t get my engine funning. With a name like this it should be more NASCAR instead of just being a bit of a fender bender.

Very nice golden ale, honey color and a fair head, nice level of carbonation, flowery and smother than some, not so muc pepper, but very nicearomatic notes

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #111. This seemed a little bit off, slight butterscotch in the aroma and flavor. I wasn’t a fan of this, I will have to revisit and re-rate in the future. (2556)

June 23rd, 2011 - Golden Ales are always happy return to my first glass of Duvel. I never knew the billowing head on a beer could reach such extremes! Your basic pale ale fizzles and pops on top, but the Golden ale makes art. Any brew that lets me mold and sculpt the foam, or go cloud watching in my glass, is always a welcome drink. Goose Island’s Demolition is a nice, light beer, exhibiting the quality that make this style such a treat to sip on summer days plagued with lingering heat. True to form, the brew is light yellow in color, like faded dandelion petals, and a slight haze from the chill, pierced and punctured by bubbles. Cornmeal and honey, like a great slice of polenta, fill my nose, with some light flowery notes, perhaps from the surgically delicate addition of floral hops. My first thoughts: the Demolition is light, quenching and perfect for summer, with a strong carbonation to cut through afternoon snacking, more gentle flowery notes, and a nice mild hops bitterness in the aftertaste, leaving a light gaze of honeyed sweetness in its wake.

Bomber. Pours a golden hue with a big white head and good retention. Nose is fruity yeast and malt. Bread, malty and spicy yeastiness on the palate. Good stuff, but I probably shouldn’t have drank this after polishing off a few IPAs. ;-)
