3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

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
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours rather light gold and barely hazy at all with a tiny white head. Nose is light, crisp, almost tart, and almost like sweat. Flavor is a bit more assertive than I thought. A good, clean, even breadiness and crackers is noticed throughout. Hops are rather mild and don’t add a whole lot. Very unexciting, but not woeful.

Bad beer. The guy before me is right on, this beer smells horrible. This beer’s only saving grace is that I’m using it to chase some GOOD scotch.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle thanks to badnloose. Poured a pale golden color with an extremely small head. Aroma is almost a new level of bad. Sour aroma with notes of grains and straw. Flavor is much better, but that’s not saying much. The beer is weak malts, with grass.

tap @ Natty Greenes: Poured a clear light golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma. The flavor was malty, sweet and a little corny. Light hop finish. Light to medium body. Crisp semi-dry finish.
