On tap in Framingham. This beer was a pleasant surprise. It was light in flavor but felt full-bodied. It poured a murky straw yellow with a slight white head.

On tap at Framingham location, billed as "Gold Kölsch". Pale gold/straw, poured with thin head, soon gone but leaving residual lacing. Nicely balanced, sweat aftertaste. Main impression is "crisp". A nice light session beer.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Had this one at the brewpub in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Billed as "Colonial Gold." Clear, medium yellow pour wth a lacy white head, dry fruitiness, balanced taste, bitter finish, not bad for the style but a little out of season now.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Medium yellow, thin bodied, clear, with active carbonation. Small, fully diminishing white head with no lacing. Aroma is of faint, sweet malts. Initial taste is acidic with a faint bitter finish, although this is not a complimentary bitter. Light on the mouth, it has a watery texture and soft carbonation. The acidic taste provides a cider-like characteristic to the ale. Reviewed on January 20th, 2007.
