3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Cloudy honey amber colored body, with s thick, fine-bubbled tan head. Sweet and resinous pine sap hop nose, with some heavy fruity (sugar) and dough notes. Very malty, very full and rich and sweet, but also clean and crisp in the back. Oily in the finish, with some high bitterness but also some sticky, sweet pear and pine needle flavors. Finish is exceptionally sweet, that needs to be mentioned, with oily fruit sugars. Fresh flavor, overall, maybe some walnut and apple cider notes as well. Very interesting, and it’s always nice to have a one-hop beer, just to help get a better picture of the hop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A very smooth, fruity and moderately hoppy golden ale.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a small off-white head with good lacing
In long: Nose of leafy hops and citrus fruits. In mouth the beer has a solid backbone of toasted cereals with a bit of caramel. Well balanced with leafy and citrusy hops. The bitterness is mild. A little fruit skin dryness at the end. This is a pretty decent session beer. Golding is not the most assertive type of hops around and thatís not the goal here. Another good beer from Selins Grove. I loved that place, he old historical house, the nice furniture and decoration, the professional service. This is classy brewpub. Not the type of place where you go to drink beer while watching naked women mud-wrestle a horny bear. But if you know of such a place please beermail me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a moderate golden-copper color with a somewhat-thin white head and some speckled lacing as it goes down. The nose brings some mild toffee and bread crust as well as a small amount of floral hops.
The taste follows the nose. I got mostly toffee, and caramel plus a slight floral character from the hops. There is a bit of diacetyl there as well. While not necessarily a flaw in this style, it didnt really add much for me. The feel is light and slightly creamy. Drinks quite well in the end even though no single component really had all that much I particularly enjoyed.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From growler, one hour old. Pours a clear dark copper colored body under an off-white tight bubbled head with decent retention. Aroma is of crackery biscuity malt under a nice floral hoppiness, EKG for sure. A little light fruitiness as well. Flavor is moderately bitter up front that gets slightly more bitter towards the finish. Malt is fairly soft with fruity undertones. Mouthfeel is fairly thin with nice soft carbonation, not exciting, but hey, thatís the style. Overall, a nice session Bitter. I especially liked the fact that the hops tasted pretty green and fresh.
