COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mildly hopped beer with a complex malt character, and a soft creamy head. Soft and fruity with light yeast esters of apricot and orange. It is a refreshing and crisp session beer, with just enough hops to balance and round out the sweetness of the malt. 24 IBU 1.048 OG

Golden body with light head. Aroma is bready with a touch of fruit. A little sweet and flat with some underlying malt tones. Simplistic.

Sampler at brewpub. Dark gold color. Fruity hop centric beer. Cleanish malt with light fruit yeast. A vehicle for fruity hops with a ight malt backbone. A ncie clean easy drinking beer at under 5%, nice.

Meh. Not one of Pikeís better offerings, but it serves itís place to hit the first gen craft beer drinkers.

I wish I had a date on this and I realize Iím somewhat apprehensive about saying something, but I figure Iíll say something and hopefully try to get fresher someday. This was poured into a pint glass every time. The appearance was light clear golden yellow to orange color with a nice transparency about it. There was a nice two finger white foamy head that dissipated rapidly into oblivion. The lacing concaves at the top and follows the beer as it goes down. The smell, well, I honestly didnít get what everyone before me got as there really isnít any aroma whatsoever to this beer. Thereís nothing, no hops, no malts, no nothing. The taste once again, honestly, thereís no sweetness, no bitterness, no nothing. On the palate, this is pretty light for the most part and shows a great sessionability. What carbonation - not there whatsoever. Overall, honestly I hate to do this, but Iím not exactly sure what Iím drinking right now, so uh....I would only ever have this again if I could find it on tap or if Pikeís started putting on dates on their beers. Iíve had better Blonde Ales.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear brilliant gold under a nice foamy white head. Nose is delightfully grassy and bitter-forward with a earthy peppery malt backbone. Big full grassy and noble hop character right up front with a smooth earthy pale malt finish.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Malt and hops, hops drying out the finish. Clear golden body, with airy head, aroma of bread, crackers, mostly malt characteristics. Taste is malt again, hops kick in on the back plane, drying it out at the finish. Very crisp and clean beer, but not as smooth and velvety as some of the British or Belgian varieties.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
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 Iíve 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.
