COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp golden ale with a delicate hop finish. This is our lightest ale and it is brewed with a bit wheat malt for body and Munich and Aromatic malts for and undertone of honey-like sweetness. Lightly dry-hopped with Cascade hops for that classic American golden ale aroma.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle - clearing up some backlog. Bit of a gusher on opening. Pours hazy butterscotch with a large off-white head that eventually dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is honey, grain, corn. Flavor is the same, light sweet, bit of mint, grass - not a lot of Cascade character. Highly carbonated, medium body.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle:   Dated what looks like Oct 2012.   Darker straw, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Soft semi-sweet straw/hay on the nose.   A touch fruity.   Soft semi-sweet straw and hay up front, a little wheaty on the backside.   Clean, touch of citrus sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Gets a little mealy on the finish, but not enough to detract.   Light, a little sweet, spritzy, better than expected.   Thanks Kevin!

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft pint at Skylark in Chicago after FOBAB. Consumed about 60% before knocking the rest into my lap. Wisely cut myself off after that. Pours a clear golden color with a bit of eggshell white head. Clean pale and somewhat sweet malts, a bit of straw, mellow grassy and citrusy hops, and some wheat. Light-bodied, with mellow carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Nice, fresh, and bright.
