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.

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.

Bomber. Pours a medium gold, thin white head, okay lacing. Nose is faint, hops and malt. Nothing out of the ordinary going on. Mouth is medium bodied. Lemon, hay, grass, slight cereal maltiness. Mild hoppy bitterness at finish.

A bit of something on the nose that I couldn't pick out. But clear and refreshing taste. Huge subtle hop flavor that left faster than it arrives. Good brew again from revolution ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is pale malts, citrus/light tropical fruit and a small hint of sweetness. The flavor is pale/biscuit malts, tropical fruit, tart fruit, a hint of sweetness and a medium low but definitely there bitterness in the finish. Definitely reminiscent of a bitter, great ale.

Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of lemon bread, light salt taffy, yeast and mild spicy hops. Crisp and clean. Body on the thick side for a golden. Nice beer. Well balanced and put together.
