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.

Maltser85 (313) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
It pours golden with a white head. Grainy, slightly doughy. This is old, hops are skunked. Not missing much though.

"perfect example of "it’s good for a golden ale, but still a golden ale". decent body and shows a little flavor, but everything’s a little too muted for me. overall, an ok beer, though, that was about what i expected."

Petkus331 (280) - Redford, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2014
An aroma of banana and bubblegum. a pale yellowish gold appearance with a thin white head. Taste of mildly sweet banana and bubblegum with a balanced mild grassy bitterness. Palate is unfortunately thin and watery. Overall, ok, but not bad.

From bottle. Clear orange gold. Very thin. Suprisingly sour (in a good war). Apple cider nose, slight yeasty sourness on flavor.

monk191 (1088) - California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
A decent golden. Pours an ugly yellow, but smells fruity and wheaty. Taste is the same. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3505) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Tap. Pours clear golden amber, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is bland, grain, honey, bit of bathroom. Flavor is the same, light set, light grassy bitter. Light body.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Clear light gold with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty and cereal-ish with a little peppery tone. Unfortunately the flavor is watery and bland. Really bland and faintly blonde. Kinda flavorless.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma is yeast, grainy malts and a unique nuttiness, possibly pecans. The flavor is malts, mild to medium sweetness, underlying nuttiness and citrus hops in the finish.

Firesale draft at FS FW. Kinda like expected for a golden ale. Sessionable. Not boring but nothing special. Refreshing.

Yellow/gold pour, white head. Grainy, wheat, corn aroma. Flavor is light and grainy. Boring and not really so good.
