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.

Westmeister (1954) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a lightly hazed gold with thinnish white head. Smell is light citrus hop, sweet light malts, light caramel, bready. Taste is light citrus, doughy, crisp malts, light fruity. Bigger hop component than one would think for the style. Has some body for such a light drinker. Not bad, for a session type.

Had this at their place in Chicago. All the beer unless noted otherwise were good to very good. Unfortunately this was rated with another program and I can't import my comments.

7/21/2011: Revolution Cross of Gold (Gold Ale)... Aroma: Muted citrus hops. Appearance: Creamy off-white crown; golden, clean complexion; fleck-like lacing. Flavor: Crisp - dry hop finish; mild bitterness with nice, bright hop flavor that isn’t too large for the style. Palate: Light weight. Overall: Easily sessionable; I likes!

Draught (5.0% ABV) at Revolution in Chicago, IL. Rating #75 for this beer.

Had it on tap at Revolution Brewery in Logan Square Chicago. Poured a clear amber hue, the aroma is more on a pilsner side, with thin white head and minimal lacing. The taste is subtly bitter with a dry finish. Lovely.

JMerritt (1863) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottled. Clear golden with a medium-sized white head that is partially diminishing. Lightly grassy nose with subtle grapefruit and orange zest, vanilla cookies and whole wheat biscuits. Mild bitterness initially that increases rapidly through the initial flavor profile, bringing notes of leather, bittersweet grapefruit, dried straw and a quick, bright almost ginger zing. Medium-bodied with a nice carbonation. Flavorful and quaffable - I was very pleased.

Draft. From notes. Pretty good for a golden. Yeasty and slightly spicy. A little lemon on the back end. I could drink this again pretty easily.
