COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Experience the gold rush. Gateway Golden Ale is light, refreshingly crisp, yet retains all the flavor one comes to expect from microbrew. Brewed with a combination of lightly roasted malts and just enough hops to balance out the malt while producing beautiful aroma on the nose.

Maybe my favorite of the regular lineup that was available in the sampler that day. Nice lacing even in a sampling glass left after the clear golden body. Slightly dusty but clean crackery malts. Clean neutral moderate bitterness. I like the beer because its mainly a clean neutral beer but some tinges if dusty British character.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear pale golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and toasted malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, sweet malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is lightly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent Golden overall.
