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.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fiulijn. Clear, deep golden with a creamy, white head leaving some lacing. Fresh aroma with both citrus and peach. Medium body with lightly sweet malts, but otherwise dominated by very fresh accents of the aroma hops that also leave a solid dose of bitterness. 171107

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Hazy golden color. The aroma is hoppy, but also with some paper feeling. Dry toffee flavor, and quite strong and good hopping, but without any vibe…

Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some apple, orange/floral, medium bitterness. Soft, light-medium body with some crispness, light resin. Fairly drinkable -- nice for what it is. (6/4/6/4/13)

(11/23/05, 12oz bottle) Clear amber body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, spruce/grapefruit, some grassy. Taste is medium sweet, spruce/grapefruit, some floral, lime. Clean bite in the finish, more bitterness than expected from an Extra Pale Ale. Light-medium body, clean. Not sure that I liked it at first, but it definitely grew on me. (6/4/7/4/14)

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2006
The hops save the brew. The effect is grapefruit, but the nose is a bit faint (could be my nose). I just can’t pick up the floral until it’s in my mouth. I really like it. The bitterness persists. I really like it. Very clean; very crisp; the finish is grapefruit fibre. I really like it.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle... Clear, light yellow ale with a large, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. Spicy, herbal hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Light roasted malts play second fiddle to a crisp hop bite. Medium-bodied with light carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Very nice summer brew!
