Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
In short: A awkwardly fruity golden ale that tastes like old past due-date orange juice. Bad.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Cloudy golden-orange body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is a bit fruity (oranges, tangerines) and some corny cereals. Taste is equally fruity with an overall sensation of breakfast juice (orange juice mixed with grapefruit juice). This beer had way too much of an old past due-date orange juice flavor with the awkward acidity. Light body and with a soda-pop carbonation. It is almost refreshing because it is fruity and a bit acidic, but ultimately this is a poorly made beer and it tastes too much like a past due-date fruit juice with carbonation. They were selling gift cards at the brewpub, which raises the question, how much do you need to hate someone for that?

draft @ brewpub. Very nice hellas--crisp and clean with good expression of grassy hops. Refreshing with good sweet malt character too.

kramer (5089) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly bready with a touch of a corn like note even though it says that it’s all malt. The flavor is light and laced with corn notes, fairly short finish. Not a whole lot of hops to speak of. Thin and fizzy body, not especially clean or crisp. Not terrible, decent for what it was.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pretty good for style. Has a nice prominent barley aroma. Low carbonation, very low for style. Pours cloudy yellow with good lacing, no head. Watery consistency. On tap at brewpub.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2007
27 oct 07, on tap @ Old Harbor Brewery in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Described to me as being like Medalla Light. Not a good way to start! Why do these people like this beer so much? Deep golden color, White head. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is very malty. Slowly followed by a sharp bitterness. Light bodied and still chewy. Overall: A "better" light beer!

cheap (4198) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
Sampled at the brewpub in Old San Juan. Ubiquitous color and appearance. Sweetish aroma. Some hay and grass in the flavors. Mild and friendly. Easy to enjoy with its gentle like behavior and manners. Some very mild bitter bite on the finish, but very acceptable.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2009
Draught @ the brewpub in San Juan. They served a five sample. Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Clear light yellow color. Aroma was light grassy, with notes of caramel, mild toasted malt. Light bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Light grassy dry finish. Ok but not spectacular in any ways.
