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.

This is a style Iím not terribly familiar with. Aroma is slightly floral and malt sweetness. Orange-yellow murky appearance. Taste is citrus - lemon and orange - with a mild malt sweetness and just a bit of hops in the far, far background. A medium-to-light body makes it very drinkable. It has a mildly bitter hops and sweet malt aftertaste. Would be good on a hot day outside with some food. By itself, to me, itís just "Ehh", or in todayís vernacular "Meh".

On tap @ Revolution. Golden pour with a white head. Lots of floral hops, doughy malt, bread, and baked apple. A hint of grassy hops. Nice nose. Pleasant sweetness on the palate. Lots of dough, bread, and biscuit. A little bit of baked apple. Orange peel, floral hops, and a bit of grassy bitterness. Solid.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014
Location: Bomber at the Bar Below, 6/4/14

Aroma: This beer has a grainy/cereal malt aroma, with some spice and light citrus
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with a white head and average lace
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose component-wise, it is light sweet, grainy, and light bitter
Palate: It has a fairly fizzy carbonation, a light body, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid, drinkable beer. Maybe it is a touch too fizzy, and maybe a touch too simple to get a higher score than this, but this is a solid brew.

Sampled at brewpub. Poured gold. White head. Nose of tropical fruit and floral hops. Medium body. Flavor is full of flavorful hops and the finish is flavorful and hoppy and goes on and on. Really great drinking beer.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a light amber color with a white head. The aroma was of light grain and a touch of floral hops. The taste was of light grain, honey and a little herbal hops. Good stuff.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2014
Sampled at the brewpub. A thick layer of beige lace from the falling foam. The beer is copper and clear. Spicy and fruity hop notes in the aroma. Oh, yes. First sip is nice. A blonde? Almost a pale ale with the hops. A delicious one. Tropical fruit with citrus. Spice. Excellent beer that brings hope for this style.

@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Clear medium amber with a 1/2" head cover, wide bands of lace. Taste starts with wheat malt, adds quite distinctive authentic honey in the palate (unmistakable taste, with the cloying sweet that accompanies it) before turning slightly bitter for the finish. It should satisfy, but somehow doesnít blend the tastes together very well.

BLADT (591) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2014
From tap. Clean amber in glass. Small nose of grassy hops. Beer mellow. Taste is equally subdued. Fizzy, creamy, wet hops. Small help notes. M mild bitterness. Very easy - and pleasant - drinking.
