COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, light-bodied, golden beer is the very definition of refreshment. The combination of premium German pilsner malts and American Noble hops aims to please your taste buds and satisfy your thirst.

Bottle. Pale golden-yellow body with a clean white head. Odd briny aroma with a note of yellow mustard. The wild ride continues as fish tones emerge in the flavor. Smooths out a bit after the senses adapt. Some notable spicy hop flavors plus sweet doughy malt form the base here. But a strange grainy, phenolic quality is supplying the off characters. I really, really wanted to like this. But it just ain’t happening.

soyorganic (285) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle, which is sleek and hip. Pours nice copper color with medium lacing. The beer is nice but like the others has a dull earthy aftertaste that I can’t put my finger on. It is however a good session ale that I wouldn’t turn down if offerred.

bp (802) - Queens, New York, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle: pours a clear, golden amber color with a frothy white head, aroma is sweet and also a little yeasty, bitter, hoppy flavor, thin mouthfeel, a nice session beer.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2008 On Tap: Little to no head to speak of. I didn’t detect much of an aroma from the beer. Taste wise it was good with some nice hop flavor along with some yeast. Very good lawnmower beer.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2008
[Draft @ Ray’s "Happy Birthday" Bar] Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, light toffee, citrus fruits, and a bit of floral hops. Taste was crisp, with toasty dough, pils malt, light citrus fruits, toffee, and a lemon rind finish.

On tap at Rays "Happy Brithday" Bar, a block away from Genos Steaks in Philly. Goldis yellow in color with. Aroma that isnt much more then lemon and orange zest. Nice head retention. flavor is plenty hoppy alright. Similar to Yuengling, tasty, insipid.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Re-rating 9/27/2010: Much the same, had it on draught, but I’ll also add that it’s a great session beer for conversation and friends. And you have to love supporting something local. Again had at the Green Rock Tavern, 2546 E Lehigh Ave, Philly. 4/10/2008: Light, chipper, bounces off tongue. Drank at Green Rock Tavern, FISHTOWN. Good tavern, good people.

A real nice easy drinking lager; reminds of a Brooklyn Lager "light." Nice use of hops and plenty of aroma, but not too heavy....great for your wife or girlfriend....good job Bartons!

Draught: Sweet aroma of floral hops, Pils malts, and lagering yeast. Poured gold in color with a small white head that diminished quickly. Clear. Sparkling. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter flavor. Flavor of fruit, berries, celery, and Pils malts. Light to medium body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Dry finish.
