12oz can pours a hazy, sunset gold with plenty of frothy, white head. Looks pretty damn good. Nose has biscuit and light grist, yeast, some honey, some straw. Flavor follows, buttered biscuit, some yeasty dough, straw, a little honey sweetness, mild under ripe melon. Dry finish. Honestly, pretty good for the style.

12 oz. can from thebaldwizard. Thanks Joe! It pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is bready with hints of honey and earthy hops. The flavor is pretty much the same. Bread, honey, corn, hints of citrus and earthy/floral hops. Very low hop character. The mouthfeel is light and fairly crisp, although the honey gives it some body. Overall, pretty boring, but not terrible.

Cloudy gold with thin white head. Barnyard lemon peel aroma. Flavors of straw, hay, with grassy light malt in the finish. Not a "golden ale" fan but I enjoyed this one. Thanks dlovell2 for sharing.

12oz bonus can via BA trade. Poured a hazed bright yellow with a foamy bright white head. Aroma is dusty, grains, light honey sweetness, newspaper, paste, some grape skins and a touch of vanilla. Flavor is grains, light sweetness, wet bread, old dry honey topped toast. Fuller body, almost creamy, with aversge carbonation.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. 4.5 A: Nearly clear medium yellow color. Three fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is very good and plenty of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Dry graininess, wildflowers, spring water, dirty earthiness. Just a hint of floral and herbal hops. Really nice aroma on this. 4.5 T: Big graininess, sweet neutral maltiness. Earth, wildflower, mountain spring. Faint bitterness. Herbal hop flavor. Big flavor, far surpassing what the nose offers. 4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Creamy for the body. 4.5 D: Very solid beer. One of my favorites from RG. ★ 619 characters DavoleBomb, Jan 24, 2015

Nephilium (1663) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Mild grainy aroma, with a hint of honey. Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a thin white head. The grain flavor comes through as well, with a hint of biscuit. Just enough bitterness to balance out the malt, this is a nice drinkable blond ale with nothing really making it stand out.
