3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale light yellow golden color. Aroma is basically of malts, hops, and a little bit of caramel. Taste is pretty much the same. The malts really come out in front with a slight citrus flavor in the back end. It has a smooth aftertaste in the finish. Overall not too bad of a brew. A good session beer.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Drinkable, but very forgetable. Average at best. Reminded me of Coors Light, that I used to drink as a newbie beer drinker,and used to think that was great, a bit older and wiser now, this beer is nothing special.

Pleasant gold color with a quick white head and light lace. Excellent example of golden ale. Clean bodied with sweet start and gentle bite at the end. Hints of spice. A solid pour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden pour with a fluffy white head and lace. Aroma of light malt and not much more. Flavor of semi sweet malt with a bit of a cloying sweet finish. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. I think this may be one of the best golden ales I’ve had. It didn’t have much on the aroma but pretty flavorful for a golden.
