COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English-style Summer Ale has a bright golden color as the name indicates. Cascade hops impart a floral aroma that is accented by citrus notes lent from Chinook hops. The hop flavors mingle with with premium pale malted barley to create a flavorful ale that is crisp and refreshing.

On tap at Resurection. I think retiring this guy was a good move, I dont know how it tasted back in the day but it was kind of rough this week in Philly. Notes of metalic funk, cherry booze, very malty, bitter.

Draft at resurrection with Vinny. Pours a slightly hazy orange Anne body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fresh hop. Mouthfeel is bitter, stale, sweet malty, and somewhat offensive.

Poured from the bottle to a golden hue with a thick white head. The aroma is a hoppy floral and fruit. The beer is medium-bodied and slightly tingly, and the flavor is just like the aroma.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Off flowery aroma with some toffee like malty notes. Similar flavor with an strange grainy notes. Not bad, but not that good either, especially when sampled after the 30th St. Pale Ale, which was awesome.

Very smooth and bitter, lots of hops. Quite refreshing, not as astringent as many hoppier west coast pales. On tap at the Brewery.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 Poured from the bottle to a bright golden yellow with a thick white head that exploded from the bottle. Once this finally settled down, it left good lacing on the glass throughout the drink. Nose is hoppy floral, apples and a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and slightly tingly, and the flavor likens the hoppy floral and fruit sensations in the nose. Not bad for a beer with a comic book name.....too bad itís retired.

drowland (6037) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. I think I must have gotten an old bottle... borderline skunky. Besides that the flavor profile is typical for the style and not bad.

Well, I love the WC IPA, the barleywine and the tripel so I figured it was time to give this a go. The color is yellow and hazy with a sticky white head. The aromas are faintly metallic with a slight hint of crisp, grassy hops lurking in the background. The flavor is weird, so subtle I almost canít pick anything out except a slight bitter finish and a tea-like flavor, but wait, lemons!. The mouthfeel is watery but for some reason not in a bad way. I could drink several of these at a time so it would be a good session beer if the flavor was stronger. Although I found this to be slightly above average, the nut brown is next.
