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.

Draft at Union Station bar, whatever they’re calling it now.Thin draft head., a mild nose with toasty malts. Solid ale taste without the extra sweetness that I sometimes get with a blond ale. Helped, no doubt, by its palatable dose of American hops. Light ale esters, tickley carbonation.

Looks like golden macro beer to me. The smell is very lager-like. corn, rice, that whole business. maybe a bit of german influence in the yeast strain here, but other than the sweet corn flavor, I don’t get much in this one.

Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is herbal, floral, and earthy hops, a little skunky, and some bread malts. Flavor is similar, a little on the sweet side. Has a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Okay.

ClarkVV (5781) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Draught at the Friendly Toast, 2/27/16.
Minimally hazy, clear straw golden body shows light carbonation and a small, white head with moderately-low to low retention.
Grains, soft herbs and bits of dry cookie-like malt character grace the nose. There’s some cereal-like character which kind of dulls the hop accents, though they are fruitier than I’d like for a golden ale, with light citrus and orange peel-like character.
A bit bready, dusty and biscuity, with zero sweetness and a bit of huskiness/graininess on the finish. Medium carbonation is not particularly tight, leading to a somewhat loose, watery texture and an odd fruity-citrus-meets-biscuit-and-baked-bread character that isn’t all that appealing.

On tap at Revolution. Golden with a white head. Hoppy with some citrus, hay and light malt. Soft and easy to drink.
