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.

JMerritt (1867) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
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.

ARH (724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2015
On tap, poured into a shaker. Honey and fruity, sugar sweet aromas are most noted with hints of biscuit late. Overall, fairly mellow aromas. It’s a clear, oily honey color with an even, fuzzy and foamy, white head that reduces to thin ring and only leaves a light lace. The taste is a medium sweet start followed by a medium bitter finish - both of which are fairly mellow. The medium light body is oily with a soft, fuzzy carbonation. A candy citrus is picked up on the palate with notes of honey and cereal. Honey and grains finish it off and stick around in the aftertaste with a notable corn flakes taste.

riversideAK (5730) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Flavors of bread soft wheat clean pleasant soft citrus and some floral notes. Golden pour thin head and lace. Flavors of light bread and a little wheat. Light orangey notes herbal after that and a light crisp finish with moderate residual sweetness. Not bad.

22 oz bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, orange citrus, grass, mild bitterness, fairly plain, I wouldn’t revisit this, not bad just no reason to.

Bottle. Lots of light roasted grain but overall very mild aroma. A little dry wheat taste across palate. Overall a nice beer with high drinkability.

Good session ale. Mild hops mingle with a wheat and malt backbone. Little bit of sweetness/honey tone here. Lively carbonation. Goes down easily.

DuffMan (7466) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear medium gold, aroma of light fruity grains. Pleasantly hoppy palate, floral fruit and clean grains, lightly bitter finish. Sessionable.

BMMillsy (1654) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours bright clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Strong aroma of lemon peel and orange rinds, some grass, not much else. Flavor is orange rinds and stale hops, some sweetness like honey, a bit of biscuit malt here. Light bodied and medium plus carbonation. Dirty unpleasant finish. Overall I’m not very impressed with this one.
