Five hops and four malts make Hoptober Golden Ale a veritable cornucopia of earth. Pale and wheat malt are mashed with rye and oats to create a medium-bodied ale with creamy mouth feel. Centennial, Cascade, Sterling, Willamette and Glacier hops form a bonfire of citrus notes, fruity cheers and a bold finale. ABV: 6% 40 IBU Available in 6-packs and on draught

Draft pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine and spices. Taste is malt, and the nice bitter hops.

what a nice surprise, especially being a sale beer! aroma is very well balanced light citrus and earthy hops and malt. soft on the palate, and tasty, even though the hops come through a touch more in the aroma than the smell. Very very nice seasonal for just over a buck a bottle. recomended. 10/18/09-had on tap for the first time. even softer on the palate...near perfect body for the style, and still very tasty and aromatic."

Best by 11DEC11 A: Pours a golden ale with a single finger head that goes down to a sheet of the same. Excellent clarity. Rings of lace. S: Citrusy and pleasant. Really great nose here, distinctly orange and lemon. Nice. T: Sharp hops and sweet malts. Great flavor is just as citrus laden as the nose. M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Semi dry finish. O: Good beer. Easy to drink. Reminds me of fresh Bitter American. Very sessionable. Serving type: bottle 08-20-2011

A hazed golden ale with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light sulfur notes, so-so. In mouth, a sweetish malt with light fruity esters, faint grassy hops, OK. Bottle Oct. 2011.

This was a 3 year old bottle, poured light golden. Nose slight sour, syrupy malt, and dank hop. Taste sweet malt and bitter bite, faint spiciness. Mild bitter finish. I realize it was past date, but not too bad.
