UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 Disjointed flavors of hops, honey and malt. All this makes a Golden bodied Ale that I do not have much desire to drink again.

Bottle. Oh, come on guys, a name like this has to be used on a Doppelbock! Clean, lightly yeasty nose, golden ale straightaway. Deep transparent golden with a short white head. Fullish body, clean and basically flavorless; there’s a pleasantly bit of golden pale malt, hint of yeast, and light bitterness. Dry, and they’re getting a nice English subtlety out of the hops here. Crisp and easy-going, essentially flawless as these things go.

Very drinkable on a warm summer day. A bit sweet and slightly syrupy for my taste. The honey flavor is okay. It is not heavily carbonated and the appearance is very average.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one poured a bland yellow color with a white head. Aroam was of pale malt, grass, and light honey. Flavor was ssimilar, very bland and malty and sweet with really no redeeming qualities.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light yellow or light copper with a boozy head. Aromas of honey, caramel, floral hops and slight grass/grain. Flavors of honey, slight perfume hops, grain, and grass. Leaves a light corn aftertaste. Lightly sweet. Definitely dig the in your face honey flavor upfront, but that’s mostly it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lightly hazy yellow with a frothy white head. A sweetened version of a pale ale that you should let warm up so that the honey can come out more. Would be nice on a warm day.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very clear golden coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall pale white head. Aroma of rice, light cardboardie malt and a hint of citrus - after that, nothing at all noticeable - not so great. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic and medicinal flavours roaming at first with some lighter citrus, lemons and metal coming through, a hint of rice with a finish of cardboard - not pleasant again. Aftertaste is very pungent form the off-flavours, but a light hop/medicine flavour just comes through. Overall, not such a good beer, frankly, as expected - but not really worth spending money on. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia for US$1.49 on 02-April-2013 sampled a day later on 03-April-2013 from home in Washington.
