(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with jasonp, thanks Jason!) Moderately flavorful golden ale with a mildly sweet breadiness being the dominant flavor. There’s a hint of tea in the flavor, and hops is pretty minimal. The nose smells like weak tea, plus some mild breadiness. Light to medium bodied, gentle and unchallenging on the palate, easy to drink. Dark golden in color. There are fine, light colored particles suspended in the beer, but you don’t notice them unless you hold the beer up to light and look intently. Off-white head is of average size and fades quickly to a wide rim. No lace whatsoever. Pretty average all around.

golden in color with white head which had a slight retention at first but then faded away. light-bodied ale, smooth malts and floral hops. watery yet gasey. Good summertime ale.

This beer is pretty good. Nice clarity, nice head. Malty flavor with a mild finish.

This one was nothing to shout about. Nothing spectacular about the color or appearance. I would only recommend this beer on a hot summer’s day.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Clear gold color with a rapidly collapsing white head, this has some nice, juicy fruit in the aroma along with some floral hopping. Light caramel tastes and some light, peppery spices are present in this light-bodied drink. I like the bitter hop finish... odd for the style, but refreshing just the same.

JFGrind (1833) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Biscuit, grainy aroma, and low and behold a golden appearance. Average bubbles, this beer does have some "zing". Malt sweetness is present also, all and all its a beer I can drink.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Bottle: Bright golden yellow with a quickly fading, frothy, white head. Head fades to a small ring and a light coating on top of the beer. Light bodied. Aroma is somewhat hoppy with notes of lemon, grass, yeast, grains, and lightly sour malt. Taste is initially spicy & hop dominated with hints of grass, lemon, citrus, light pepper. Then towards the middle there are notes of a sweet syrupy-grain like malt. Finishes with a mild hops bitterness and grainy sweetness. Carbonation is exactly like drinking seltzer water.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2004
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.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2004
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.

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.
