2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a great golden ale, the flavor is really thin, reedy, and sweet. Not the best representation of this style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from M&S.
Thin white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Clear golden amber body. Light hops on the nose, tropical fruit. Flavour is malty, caramel, biscuit, earthy finish. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, light carbonation, goes down easily. Pretty standard golden ale fare, a wee bit more hoppy than usual.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly colored But cloudy. Pocked thin head. Smells literally and faintly of gym sock. Tastes kinda like it too? Not grey flavor, but good light bodied texture.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium thick, well retained white head, over a clear effervescent light gold (SRM 4) body......nose is light toasted malts with hinits of bread crust, light herbal hops.....taste is lightly sweet with pear apple notes, mild toasted cereal, finishing with mild hop bitterness......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol,, high carbonation with light acid. This is a light example of this light style. It is not particularly interesting in either aroma or flavor and the recipe could use a bit of re-work to increase the complexity of both. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a a darker golden yellow with a cap of of white head that falls down to a collar. The aroma is dirt. People that call it earth are full of shit. There is a little hop hidden in there, but it's all dirt. The flavor is decently juicy hops and a little bit of caramel malt. There isn't any dirt here, but it's really mellow. The mouth feel is thin and light with a little syrupy texture that doesn't make sense. There is a little juicy hop on the back end and a light maltiness. Not too bad at all

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is "earthy", another word is dirt, some hop but not much. Appearance is golden, white head. Taste is decent, nice hop presence and easy drinking. Mouthfeel is a touch light, not crisp but still doing the job. Overall, better than expected for sure.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - from sampler pack. Light golden - cloudy. Some malt aroma. Weak with slight hop aftertaste and a slight unidentified off-flavor, Meh. Least favorite of the pack.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky orange, sunset body, white head, not much retention or lacing. Pleasant but faint citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Taste is faintly sweet, maybe some tropical fruit again and yeast, but rather watery. Palate is a little soft. Overall, okay.

Clear , golden color . Aroma of tropical fruits and malt . Rather sweet taste with hoppy bitterness in finish. Not bad, although nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy pale golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is light citrus and some sweet candy. Flavour is very mild citrus and a touch of caramel. Certainly not bad - just very light and kind of thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Easy drinking golden ale, with a good balance of pale malts and fruity esthers. Easy to drink in a hot summers day and a good thirst quencher.
