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.

Not their best effort, odd funk up front with a lemon finish. For a summer beer it is more like a fall German offering. Slight barely smell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonkeyBra (3724) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2012
22 oz. bomber. Bright golden pour with a medium thick white head. The aroma focuses on pale malts, dough, and a touch of honey sweetness. There are some mild floral and grassy hop notes. I get a touch of earth notes as well. Flavor is mildly sweet with a light bitter hop notes. Lots of grass and hay, maybe of a touch of citrus mixed with pale fruits. This is nice, albeit subtle. This is not the twin of Gossamer, but perhaps a cousin from somewhere down the line.

ccex (1074) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle pours a clear orange color with a decent white head and a little lacing. Smell is full of piney and floral hops. Aroma is more subdued, with the same hops, a taste of honey, and a touch of caramel. Body is light but not watery without too much carbonation. This one is very easy to drink - dare I say sessionalble. So far this is the only enjoyable golden/blonde ale I’ve truly enjoyed. As a plus, it honors my favorite political speech from the 1896 elections(when congress was controlled by gold and silver miners). This one is good enough that I have to try the one that Revolution Brewing named after V. Eugene Debs.

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2012
22oz bomber courtesy of Brian. Filtered orange-tan, thin steady white head. Mellow, light to medium bodied. Really sessionable, clean golden malt tones. Really well balanced, delicate hop balance. Simple, but quite nice.

tmoreau (2933) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap and shaker served at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL. showing a lightly hazed, golden hue, a modest amount of soft white head foam, and some spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma was soft malt, lightly perfumey, some tropical fruit and citrus, and a touch of sweetness. The flavor continued these and added some lightly lingering, low hop bitterness. Light bodied, almost thin, but clean and very sessionable.

BVery (7959) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Revolution. Style rating??? Gimme some of this. This is killer in its style. Clear rich yellow-orange pour with a very clingy white head. Floral and bready aroma, taste is similar. Some hop kick - mild - in here as well.

Has some nice citrus and floral hop scents. Quite a pale gold color with minimal head. Has a really nice crisp taste of light hops and a little bit of apple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
