Iíve had worse golden ales, but not many. Sweet, corn and honey are the principle flavors, but they arenít strong. There isnít much strong about this beer.

On tap at the Parkville Microbrew Festival. Pours like an American Style light lager. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Medium carbonation. Malty sweet. No aroma. Watery and boring.

This is drinkable at best. Very light, with some honey sweetness, layed over a dry biscuity malt background and just a hitn of lemony like acidity in the background. I cannot really get a hop anything out of this beer. Truly a really weak beer.

ahhh, nothing like a local micro brew that tastes nearly as bad as coorís original. this american-style golden ale is probably best described as dirty water that a thirsty dog would pass up, as should anyone who truely loves beer. ínuff said.

lemon grass, citrus notes and soy........huh? ok I can detect some citrus, like over-ripe fruit but the others escape me. not bad up front, but the flavor drops off the scale pretty quick. thanks to Eric ( heemer ) for the bottle.

heemer77 (5097) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Medium hazy gold body with traces of a white head. The aroma is pears dry wood and bread. The taste is slightly tart bread with some walnuts. A slightly sweet hioney finish. Needs a little more character and less confusion.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Poured a medium and slightly cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of lemons, light grassiness, and some malts. Tastes of lemons and sweet malts. Thin and somewhat watery body. Nothing special, but hey, itís a Blonde Ale and at least I can now cross off Kansas from my state list.

My 100th beer and 1st milestone. This is only my 100th rating because it happened to be at the KC Brewfest. Talk about a mild beer. This thing was watery and weak. It had a nice apprearence, but the flavor was lacking and not very complex at all. I wasnít impressed and wanted to be because the people at Pony Express are great people. It was foamiy and looked good, but I couldnt find a flavor to jump out at me.

Braudog (5591) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Golden maize with inviting white foam head. Almost a spicy nose that hints at corriander (is that the soy?). The flavor is unique, too ... mostly a sharp malt with a cheesey bite. Interesting sweettart finish. OK.

the last of my first trade with bill, cant wait for trade 2 to come through monday :) anyways, pours golden with a white head. a nice hoppy tasting brew. not very much body and very easy to drink. not complex, just an average beer. i was glad i got to sample it though. thanks again bill!
