COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Ol’ Sun is a refreshing spring beer great for the patio. The pale golden Belgian-style ale is brewed with Pilsner malt, Belgian candi sugar, Kent Goldings hops, and local Texas honey. Light bodied and dry, this delicious golden brew delivers flavors and aromas of apple, pear, and honey with hints of banana and peach and a soft cereal graininess. At 5.5% ABV it is very drinkable.

Aroma of honey, and grain. Pours an clear amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is on the sweeter side. Malts, and honey. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall, ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Big Hops. Cloudy gold in color. Basic "Belgian" aroma from the yeast. Fruity dry flavor of spice, toasted malt and a hint of bitter citrus. Overall, not too bad... drinkable.

Beer Advocate has this listed as a Belgian Strong Pale but it certainly doesn’t seem to be so. Aroma is Belgian yeast and sweetness with some breadiness. Clear light golden color with a small head. Light flavor that opens up as it warms. Nice sessionable type beer.

zach8270 (3466) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 24, 2013
(draft @ The Esquire - San Antonio, TX) Hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Mild yeasty and Belgian spice aroma. Flavor is kind of mild. Was expecting a standard Blonde Ale. Not bad but kind of middle of the road. Very light on the spice and hops with a mild bitterness at the end.

Very pedestrian. Not sure what they were going for but I get slight malt and a very small hop presence.

Tastes of bread, yeast and lemon. The pear and banana flavors come through. This is very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
