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.

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.

Picked up a bomber at the TJís on a trip to Chicago. Currently drinking in a hotel room, stamped 03.20.12. Poured into an Old Wooly snifter I picked at Big Time in Seattle. Pours nicely with a clear golden color, small head, and clear. Looks just like I want my golden ales to look. The beer is good, clean earthy noble hops present. Clean and hoppy beer but a little too sweet for me. I like the individual parts more than the final product.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a fairly-light golden color with a single-finger white head and a bit of lacing as it falls into a thin collar. The nose is a bit light and then hits fairly well with a nice hop aroma resembling the better versions of the style that Iíve encountered. Milt citrus with a bit of tangerine. The flavor is slightly-sweet with a very mild malt character as well as a touch of hop flavor. Light body with slight bitterness and a very slight sweetness as well. Really quite drinkable.

Bomber to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells doughy, skunky, and bitter. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a tea quality. Average on the palate. Solid for the style.

DrSilverworm (8696) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear orange gold color. Minimal off-white head. Minimal loose lace. Nice mildly grassy hoppy nose. I shared this with a friend who was new to craft beer, he asked "is this brewed with oranges?" I told him a bit about hops.. Indeed, this is does have nice citrus hop notes, orange and a little grapefruit, even. Really nice hoppiness, especially considering how light this is. Nice mild bitter taste, good zest. Nice lighter crisp carbonation, medium body. More dry texture. Really nice hoppy golden ale

Vir4030 (569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours a clear yellow with a half finger white head on tap at the brewpub. Light almost absent aroma of slight alcohol beer. Not much flavor here, but watery a bit sour and thatís about it. Maybe a touch bitter too.

Hair6a11 (1427) - Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle; Pour fairly clear gold with a modest white head in this glass - it retains on the average side, with light retention here as well. The nose is florals, minerals, and grass. The flavor profile reveals the english side ; with biscuits, more florals, mineral water, and grassy hops. This is a fantastic beer for the style and the price point.

Theydon_Bois (12870) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Revolution Brewpub, Chicago - 04/11/12. Clear pale golden with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges and forms a pond. Light citrus nose, pale malts and light caramel tones. Taste follows from nose with a little lemon and pine. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty average.
