3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer decamps the 12-ounce brown bottle a deep amber color with a modest semi-creamy light tan head that erodes leaving a thin concealing sheet of lace. Nose is crisp and clean, sweet malt and quite refreshing, start is sweet and nicely malted with the top medium in its effect on the palate. Finish is moderately acidic and the hops pleasing in their spiciness, a quite dry aftertaste lingers long on the taste buds, a nice drinking beer, and one I see rarely, mores the pity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours a clear orangish golden, small dishwater like head, light carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Molasses, malts, and nuts on the nose.   Toasted malts and nuts on the tongue.   Decent body, but mouthfeel was a bit thin.   Finishes with a good does of malts.   Seems a heavy for a Golden Ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Nice, creamy head on a brilliantly clear golden beer. Nice hop aroma fell a little flat on taste. Clean and crips. Not a bad beer ... but nothing remarkable about it, either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured golden with a nice head. Looked quite nice. Aroma, malt with a touch of hops, flavor was light, too light, some malts and a moderate amount of hops, finish is some hop bitterness but not too much, quite unremarkable really.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 This beer was swiped from the fridge of a friend. As such it was free to me so at least I can say that I got my money’s worth out of the experience. It came in a 12 oz bottle with nothing really remarkable about it. It poured a pleasant medium golden color with a nice medium creamy head. I am rather fond of creamy heads on beers so this did raise my hopes some. The aroma was sweet and vaguely grainy. Acceptable but not particularly enjoyable. The flavor was a bit dry, had some recognizable malt elements and was saved by a nice moderate hop presence. In all the hops really rescue this beer from total mediocrity. There is not a great deal of body to this beer, but I was able to drink it without regret.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a hazy orange color with a 3/4 inch white head. Heavy malt aroma with some sweetness and a touch of hops. Malty flavor with a sweet backbone and a bitter, malty finish. A little harsh at first, but rather creamy in the mouth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours bronze with a tall foamy tan head. Aroma is nicely hopped with light spice and malt. That taste is hopped and slightly more spicy than the aroma. The malt comes through in the middle to even it out. Finish is slightly bitter but there are some sweet notes in there as well. Good beer!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bought a BREWPAK of 24 different beers this was the the first I tried. Never heard of them but the brew was full bodied, had good lacing, slightly sweet aroma and a not too bitter aftertaste. Overall a good choice and I would like to try some of their other products. Only had 1 in the case though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear, deep golden ale with some floaties. Not enough to haze the beer, but enough to wonder "what the heck are these large floaties doing in my glass... should I wash this thing?
Medium-sized, frothy, off-white head. Good retention and spotty lacework. Good, malty aroma and flavor. Notes of orange blossom honey in the nose and flavor. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, incomplete finish. No closure. I need closure, damn it!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
color is clear medium golden with a frothy but small white head. aroma is very citrusy (grapefruit), and spritzy-like (to use someone else's word), also a fairly subtle piney quality. flavor is very grapefruity in the finish, and also with some pine...this is like the perfect xmas beer.
