A remarkebly easy beer to drink. Very lightly hopped, and a decent smooth aftertaste. Nothing to get excited about, but probably a decent beer to have after mowing the lawn.

Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is nice bready malt with some fresh floral hops and a little fruitiness. The flavor is much hopper than expected, nice floral and citrus notes with moderate bitterness and soft pale bready malt. Lengthy bitter finish. Light bodied with a very thirst quenching soft mouthfeel and gentle fizzy carbonation. Among the best Golden Ales I’ve had.

9/26/2012. Sampled at the brewery. Golden yellow with a white head. A lot more malt and hops than your regular golden ale. Fruity flavors with a nice bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden. Crisp and dry for a pale ale. Bitter and hoppy as expected in the pac west. Med bodied and full throughout. Nice balance, but too dry in the finish for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bevmo: Appeared as a slightly hazed golden blond color with fat foamy heading that retreats leaving behind nothing. Aroma is minor with only a presence of grassy hops and faint scents of grain. The flavor is organic and tasty earthy but it taste to much like a juiced up pale lager with extra amounts of cheap hops and grain.

Burnt orange champagne like bubbles. Very piney and Christmas tree like. Has a lot of spruce tip notes. Taste is very west coast pale ale. Sort of an overpowering maltiness bit An intense bitter resinous mouthfeel. Lingers for hours

Very light beer that is clear with a white lace head. This is very easily drank but is not significantly distinguished from similar style beers

Very pale appearance with a white foamy head. Low hop presence, however a strong citrus and fruity flavour. An excellent representation of the golden style. Very refreshing for a warm day. Light bodied and low carbonation allows many to be consumed .
