Fairly standard golden ale. Clear light yellow with white head ring. A little grainy and overly sweet. Corn flavor on the finish. meh.

On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006. Of course, pretty much all brewpubs feel the need to make a light, gold, innocuous, easy-drinking beer but this one seemed to have a bit more to it than most. Perhaps because they have gone for a slightly English style rather than a lager-like concoction. Slightly darker gold than the norm. The hops are little earthy with a subtle citrus accent. The malt is biscuity and a touch fuller than usual. Perhaps not as clean as some but perfectly serviceable.

Bottle. Hazed golden color with a slight white head. Flavor dominated by toasted grain and grassy hoppiness. Bit of grass and hay on the finish as well. Ok but nothing exceptional here.

chandler0201 (640) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Pours a hazy golden with a thin head. Aroma is bready and some floral hops. Flavor is kind of buttery and citrusy, which I found unique, not great, but unique. Kind of watery at finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Tap at Natty. Pours a hazy golden with a thin head. Aroma is diacetyl- butter, toast, biscuit malt and light orange floral hops. Flavor is also very buttery- English yeasty, dough, cracker orange zest honey and biscuit malt. Somewhat clean- too much diacetyl even for a English ale. Eh.

Blaze312 (132) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours a pale golden color. Somewhat weak aroma. Light hops, but mostly watered down. I really did’t care for this and wouldn’t ever get it again. Not too much difference from macro shit.

decaturstevo (4930) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Clean golden pour with a creamy white head and lace. Light hint of malt not much else. Clean semi sweet malt and some corn. Medium bodied and a tad foamy. Nice refreshing clean beer.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Aroma is very light with some yeast coming through. The pour is bright gold with a small white head. The beer is light bodied, but with a slower finish. This would be a good hot weather beer.

arventresca (562) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Tap. Dark gold with white head. Pretty average golden ale. Sampled at PGA Tour event in Greensboro. Nice to see something besides the A-B products. OK, but like I said, average.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
nearbeer (3611) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2008
12 oz. Clear topaz with a four-finger head that leaves some creamy lace. Dry cereal, honey and grass aromas. Mild flavors of grain, sourish grass, citrus and honey. Light body is watery, lightly carbonated and finishes dry. Why is this placed in the "Bitter" category? It is obviously a mediocre golden ale even by the commercial description.
