Travlr (14385) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Draft at the source. Amost colorless. Aroma and flavor remind me of Bud Lite, and not in a good way. Are beers like this really still necessary in a modern brewpub? I guess only the sales figures know for sure.

on tap-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain/wheat, musty, secondary light hops. Starts slightly bitter and finishes sweet. Creamy. OK carbonation.

Ratman197 (10538) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of bread, rotting grass clippings, earthiness and a hint of citrus ( one of the worst smelling beers I’ve came across). Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, rice, light earthiness and a faint hint of lemon with a crisp malty finish. Thank goodness it does’nt taste as bad as it smells!

jtclockwork (9986) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle thanks to Mike. Pours clear gold with white head ring. Nose and taste of barley, corn, light grainy and bready malt, apple core and lemon. Very thin bodied. Finishes barley/grains.

Drake (9932) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy and lightly toasted malts with a faint grass finish. The taste is grassy, floral hops, tea, grain, sweet malts with a bit of raisin. Medium bodied. Decent.

shrubber85 (8306) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Vegetal/canned corn and straw aroma. Medium yellow with minimal head. Canned corned flavor - not much else. A DMS bomb.

DrSilverworm (7777) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. My bottle is labeled 3.8% ABV. Clear yellow color, minimal ring of white head around the edge, 2 or 3 small loose dots of lace. Some funky skunk; mustiness. Some lemon. Bread. Light herbal, citrus hops. Sweet corn. Some tart sour, and bitter. Thicker carbonation, sort of pronounced - gives the texture a bit; not what I’d call smooth. I think good golden ales are tasty and supremely easy to drink - this is neither

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
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.

blipp (6547) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Clean malty aroma with some grainy notes. The flavor is grainy and relatively clean, with some very light sweetness, and not much else. Decent, and certainly drinkable.
