Soft straw gold with two fingers of soft pillowy white head. The nose shows soft fresh baked bread with a subtle honey note and floral quality. The flavor had a sharpness to it and a rich honey note. Medium full bodied with an unpleasant bite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can consumed while throwing the first round of disc golf of the year. Tall boy. Aroma is sweet and floral. Golden in color. Frothy white head. Taste has a honey/nectar feel to it. No hints of citrus. Maybe a malty undertone. Syrupy mouthfeel. Kind of heavy. Slight alcohol burn at the end. Overall I’m enjoying it more than expected. Could be the beautiful day more than the quality.

Draft at gold nugget. Faint aroma. Clear gold body with no carbonation. Looks and smells like a beer far less worthy than it is. Tons of flavor. Honey sweet. Some black pepper. Really works well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a gentle hazed deep amber gold glow, frothy whitish head is a spotty but thicker ringer with decent retention, nice lacing. Aromas are a bit sweet, gentle honey and florals. A kiss of earth, bread and gentle carmelized honey. Mellow earth, subtle heather, florals, earth. Some graininess, earth, subtle lemon and earth, gentle floral. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a touch of residual honey, earth, and gentle bready and grainy malts. Subtle warmth, smooth honey and florals. A bit of thickness but quickly overcome with cool honey, dabs of lemon and earthy florals. Backend is a bit dry, bitter, subtle warmth. A bit of thickness back here covers up the ABV better with gentle sweetness, subtle fleshy apple and fruit. A bit dry and bitter, earth and floral jabs as we round the bend. Some earth, biscuit and dough. A bit strong and big and not necessarily in my wheelhouse but this works well enough. Looks nice, subtle aromas and flavors but goes down easily for a bigger beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Sweet malt nose, with citrus and light fumes. Deep bright medium straw color. Sugar and honey, condensed peaches, more honey sweetness in mid and final. Medium body. Pleasant. Gets a little cloying in mid palate, but then settles out and back to some balance.
