On tap at Laurelwood Public House. Pours clear dark gold with a lacy white head. Aroma, body and carbonation tending to the light side. Just a little bit of toffee and a hint of citrus. Crisp finish.

I enjoyed this one. Nothing too complex, just a well balanced, tasty golden ale. Flavor was crisp and clean with a slight hint of citrus. A great way to start a session.

spikester (603) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2008
Very fine for a basic brew. Poured rich golden amber with a good amount of fluffy head. Lots of lacing. A very fine golden ale. Can’t wait to try it on draft. Well balanced, a nice alternative to the macros. Recommended. Good luck finding it.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight piney hop nose. Flavor is typical golden with hops up front, some sweetness. Dry finish with lingering bitter aftertaste. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Liquid Solutions Oregon City, Or.

Slightly hazy golden. Aroma is straw with lighter fruit notes, some pale malt backing. Light bodied and inoffensive, somewhat enjoyable.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle: Golden in color, fairly clear, moderate white foamy head, decent lacing, moderate carbonation.   Malt forward nose, slight straw/hay, a bit of huskiness to it as well, albeit minor.   Soft grainy malts to start, a little barnish, dusty, with the aformentioned straw/hay.   Also has a bit of a hop zip to it.   Does seem somewhat light for the style, but thats okay.   I rather have it lighter than having it grainier.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Hops die out fairly quickly on the finish, leaving only a soft grainy malt base.   Tiz okay, average I spoze.   As it warms it picks up more graininess, which I could do without.   Worth a try.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Light pale malt aroma with light hop. Golden amber color with a fine white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Very smooth. The finish is definitely, but mildly, bitter. Seems citrus bitter.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Poured a light, thin straw-golden-copper color with a minute head. Nose of faint malts and mild hops. Grassy, earthy, and thin in the finish. Sessionable as heck!

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2007
clear gold yellow with no head, stale fruit nose, grassy citrus flavor, fresh hop with dry grassy finish, crispy, light on the tongue, delicate, well done

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of grains / wheat and citrus. Tastes of the same. A drinkable Golden Ale!
