COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A best-of-breed English Style Summer Ale, this tail-wagger’s already fetched a real name for itself in competition. Our premium barley rolls over with domestic and imported Golding hops for a delicate bitterness and cold, wet nose.

Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of perfume, straw, hay. Tastes of pepper, dry malt, some grassy hints. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Finish is dry and peppery.

Draught. Small notes of hops. A middle of the road brew. Drinkable. Refreshing. but nothing out of the ordinary.

On tap @ Cisero’s Park City Utah. Another boring Utah offering. You can marry your first cousin who’s 14 but can’t drink draft beer over 3.2%? Pretty average. Golden, blah, blah , blah. Thin, weak though like the name & label

Thanks to riversideAK for this can. Light hazy gold pour with decent head. Nose is lightly hopped with some hint of malt. Flavor is slighlty hoppy, but is thin and has some sweet citrus notes. Light body with a clean finish.

hopdog (11274) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with hellbilly (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of grains and light lemon / citrus. Tastes of the same. Thinner and weaker body.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 25, 2007
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a smallish white head that settles quickly, leaving the lace to forms a thin sheet. Nose is lightly sweet malt aroma, with a touch of earthiness, start has a fair malt presence, top is light to medium in feel. Finish has a stinging acidity, malt sweet with a little hops and of course the 4 percent ABV does not produce much bite, nonetheless these are finely crafty beers, that are perfect session beers, and besides they give my liver a chance to regenerate after several big ABV Dogfish Head beers. lol

IrishBoy (4095) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Draft at the Brewpub, 10/5/07; nose of caramel malt; cloudy amber with a small white head; flavor of caramel with a tiny bitter hop note. Drinkable golden; not my favorite style.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Poured a clear golden straw color with a thin white cap on top. The nose was strong of caramel malts and spruce needles. The flavor was not as enticing as the aroma. It started with a slight roasted caramel maltiness and finished with moderate piney esters. Overall it has a nice moderate to thick feel. It’s not bad, but nothing to shout about either. I could drink these for a while but it would probably be a second or third choice beer.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Pours golden with some lacing. The taste is mildly fruity with a roasted malt. Not much hops in it, but it has a good finish. Overall, a decent beer worth trying. Re-rate: on cask this beer is amazing. I forgot to re-rate, but Craig has forced me. The rich hoppy and spicy flavors really dominate on cask. Very good. My rating is a combination of the two.
