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 (1926) - 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.

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 (5238) - Allston, 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. Thereís some cereal-like character which kind of dulls the hop accents, though they are fruitier than Iíd 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 isnít 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.

j12601 (9286) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Not much on the nose, subtle grain and crackers. Medium bodied, grain, crackers, a hint of grainy yeast. Grainy on the finish. Easy drinking, but not my thing.

scarletfire65 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bomber at home. Clear deep golden with a foamy head. Aroma is of crackers, lemon soap, sweet grass. Light bodied, bit of sweet honey, some cat piss from the Cascades, mildly hopped finish. Really nicely done for a simple style.

thome50 (1277) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle at the Libertine November bottle share. Pours a light golden with moderate white head. Aroma is bread and slightly sweet. Taste is a run of the mill honey and slightly hoppy ale. Nothing really bad but nothing good.

Hops have held up for a couple months to make a good American-European style golden. Good summery drinkable stuff.
