clear yellow, fine white head, lots of spidery lace,
sweet malt aroma with a touch of corn,
well bittered hop flavor with a long biter finish, enough malt to balance but the bitterness is the main profile,

On tap at the restaurant/brewpub in Escanaba. Clear straw body, medium off-white head. Grassy nose. Grassy, spicy, floral hops body with a crackery bite, quite full-flavored for the style. The bready malt features a touch of lemon. Dry, firm, bitter hops finish. Spritzy. Refreshing.

This beer was decidedly....not bad. Nothing to write home about, but mildly hoppy enough to keep my interest. A pale blonde color with some maltiness, a fair amount of hops, and a few off-notes. I wouldn’t strongly recommend, but I don’t feel it is as bad as portrayed here.

Not a big fan of golden and blonde ales. This was alright though. Nice flavor with appealing hops.

Thanks to Skyview again. Light hay and corn aroma. A little corn and sugar sweetness. Gold color. A very simple session beer that has little to offer, but is not offensive.

Muchas gracias to Skyview for hunting this stuff down and carting back to the clan. Golden color with no head. Aroma of sweet cardboard. Uh oh. The flavor screams corn. Slightly moldy corn at that. Not so kosher.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked up a single 22 oz bottle at Trig’s in Wausau, WI. (Ironic I did not even stop at the brewpub in town) Pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow brew with an average size white head. Aroma is very light, with hints of grass, hay, some citrus and cardboard. Flavor is better with corn malt, a hint of citrus and mild flowery hops. Carbonation is light with a medium/light body. Finish is a little flat. I put this into the lawn mower beer catagory.

AHHHHH, such a nice place, this brewpub. H&H white tail ale. On tap at the Cranberry Twp brewpub near Pittsburgh PA. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Very nice sweet aroma, almost like flowery coconuts. Flavor is a mild bitterness and carbonation is good to medium low. Says it has low levels of hop bitterness. But I don’t sense any at all. Finish does have some personality like a mild ale. The only other golden I’ve had is Kocks Golden anniversary. This is certainly as good, probably much better than than.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled on draft at the Cranberry Twp PA location this beer poured a pale golden color with a small white head. The aroma is faint sweet light malts. The flavor is light sour and tangy malts with a dry finish. Rather blah.
