3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Might be a good ale, but was not what I was in the mood for and ended up only finishing about quarter of the pint. I find golden ales hard to taste/rate after having had several more robust bitters.

Bottle. Appearance is golden, a bit hazy, a white foamy head, leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma- malty, citrus, lemon hints, little bit of toffee. Taste- citrus bitterness, pine hints, vanilla, hop bitterness, finish lasts for a bit. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuit malts and the caramel stand out up front, then we move on to the floral hops. Then appears a touch of wheat and the light citrus hops provide a little bit of bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, light caramel, fruity hops and some grass. Flavor is fruity esthers, light caramel, grassy and earth hops with a moderate amount of bitterness and a nice dry finish. Medium light body with low carbonation make all the above flavors stand out and well balance.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted from a 500ml bottle. Pours an Opaque amber with very little head, then it settles rapidly. The aroma is, floral, grass, citrus, and very slightly happy. Tastes malty with a bitter spruce flat finish. There is very little carbonation while drinking and I expect that one could drain the glass down the throat with a steady tilt. I’m not familiar with the golden ales, but not too bad.
