The newest addition to our Small Batch Series releases, the Golden Ale is our attempt to fill a whole in our inventory: a light-tasting beer. Unwilling to give up our desire to create beers with character, we chose a Belgian-style Gold Ale. The result is a crisp, clean, light beer with an unforgettable taste.

On tap at the brewery. Golden clear appearance with a lingering white head. Mild aroma of citrus hops, lemon zest, herbs, banana and light pale malts. Similar flavor, crisp, clean and refreshing, A little boring, but easy to drink.

Can at tailgr8. Corn and malt in the nostrils. No hops. Flavor is the same. Adjuncts come thru but are refreshing. Semisweet finish sided by high carbonation. ---Rated via intercellular device

rosenbergh (6784) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2013
12 fl oz can. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Cloudy pale golden colour with a small white head. Mild fruity and yeasty aroma. The flavour is fresh fruity with some Belgian style yeast notes and some mild sweetness. Rather tasty and balanced. Tiny bit of bitterness in the aftertaste.

Can. Pours clear gold with white head. Sweet aroma, lots of honey. Flavor is less sweet, some malts. Solid but nothing stands out.

keepersj12 (2688) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Pours a clear light amber with just enough head to cover the top. The aroma is sweet with honey and roast malt and some spice. The flavor is sweet to start and then gets a bit peppery. There is a bit of spice and a bit of honey. Nice crisp and clean finish. Quite easy to down a few of these.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Clear golden pour, minimal carbonation and a slightly sweet honey aroma. Flavor is also a little honey, mildly fruity yeast and a good malt presence. Clean and crisp beer, but nothing really stands out on this to make it outstanding.
