COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mellow and refreshing with a slight dryness and crisp hoppiness. This California Golden Ale is the perfect “session” beer, an excellent ale that compliments all occasions.

Cornfield (5497) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 I’d like this more if it wasn’t so flat, the carbonation being cried out for to liven it up. Looks nice initially, deep gold with a creamy head, which soon vanishes. The aroma is sweet malts, pomes, and earthy hops. The flavor is lightly malty with some fruity sweetness, and it finishes on an earthy, soil-like hop bitterness. Why "Celts"?

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Very underattenuated and grainy. Mild hop bitterness some astringency. Will rerate because this is well below par.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Clouded yellwy amber appearance, modest head formation. Malty, fruity, slightly grainy aroma. Biscuity palate, slightly sweet with fruity hop balance. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Nothing wrong just pretty simple.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 18, 2004
(22 oz bottle, $3) For a Moylan’s beer, the mildness of the flavor is surprising and quite disappointing, they’re capable of much better than this; Minimal maltiness and a mildly bitter hoppiness stay consistent, but the finish is short-lived; Fairly prominent yeasty flavor and mouthfeel in the finish; Medium bodied, but the finish seems a bit thin and watery; This is a rather dry beer, with only a mild sweetness, but the nose is a bit sweet and floral; When this beer is first poured, the nose is also vaguely reminiscent of wort, but that seems to disappear after a few minutes; Medium golden color and slightly cloudy; Off-white head has average size and retention, but the previous bottle was extremely carbonated, causing the entire pour to be a bubbly white head; Fair amount of spotty lacing

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2004
Tap, Moylans Brewery. Too fizzy for a start, grainy sweet malt and some lemon tang, too thin.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Light-hearted moment of the night was watching Aaron try to pour a glass of this, massive head which got in the way of tasting. Straw hue (when it finally settled down), Light-bodied. Lemongrass, light bread, fruity aroma. Tart and malty balance, refreshing hints of lemongrass and citrus. Dry and soft mouthfeel. A slighty less-than-average ale.

argo0 (11562) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Head comes out of bottle before the pour, and is an off-white monstrosity -- ~5% of the glass is clear straw liquid and the rest is off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, lemongrass, yeasty, mild fruity. Taste is sweet up front, lemon, tangy, minimal hoppy (grassy). Light body, high carbonation, dry finish.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Golden straw color, large head. Crisp and slightly hopped, kind of bubbly, a little over carbonated? There is a slight fruitiness to this beer, and a subtle, soft mouth feel. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Slightly cloudy golden amber, and its been a ’fermentin’, huge light beige head, and decent lace. Malt nose, hints of citrus, very slight floral tone also noted. Lightly sweet at the start, very light top, the finish has a nice hop bite, dry, very acidic, but not what I would call ’Great’, does appear watery, not overly so, but more than I like.
