bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours burnished gold with a foamy white head. Mild malt aroma with a little fruity hop. Near medium body with foamy carbonation - a bit spritzy. Flavor is lightly roast caramel with some citric hop. Not one of those near tasteless gold ales. It has substance. Finishing decently bitter.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
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!

Bottle courtesy of my brother Justin. Thanks! Clear golden orange appearance with a white head. Grassy hoppy, bland pale malty nose. Sweet pale malty, lightly grassy-organic hoppy flavor. Pretty boring beer but there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with it.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malts with a bit of a biscuity vibe. The taste is citrus hops, pale bready malts and a bit of a buttery note. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
