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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
