Keg at Harmon Taproom, Tacoma, travel 6,000 miles for a golden fucken blonde - hurrah !!! 07/11/14.
Clear golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is pale malt, straw, orange, citric vibes.
Taste comprises much the same, pretty ho - hum, you’re not going to match the best examples of this style unless you produce them via cask conditioning, more orange, light vanilla, melon, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close, light hop bitterness.
Drinkable but ultimately dull !

Slightly hazy golden color, good creamy white head, lace. Grapefruity nettles aroma from Citra. This one has also good body for ABV. Flavor has pale malts, sweetish pineapple, pine and citrus. Lots of flavors in this beer. Citra is not dominating in the flavor, Palisade brings up some piney notes I believe.

Straw colour. Light citric ale with breezy pale malt notes. Fresh pale malt character - soft with mild citrus notes. Moderate bitterness. Great balance, very fresh-tasting, wonderfully refreshing. Not billed as such, but an excellent English-style golden ale.

Hazy amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit fruity with some light caramelly malt flavour backed by a touch of citrus. Iced tea ish but not cloying. Hops are there but the bitterness is fairly muted. Leans to sweet. A little bit of brown sugar flavour on the back.

Draft at the brewery
Orange and yellow in color. Mildly hoppy, bitter, tinny. Some wet dog and spoiled vegetable flavors, though... Difficult to drink, but at least has a good grassy hop nose, smelling oily like a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
