Nice amber color with a lot of whitish head. Lemony, metallic aroma. Hoppy flavor with a lingering charcoal and metal aftertaste. A bit thin, but OK.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden color with a sparse white head. Floral aroma. Acrid hops make this beer a little too acidic for my liking. Not one of my favorite goldens

Descent golden ale. For an APA I would prefer more balance but a nice brew otherwise. Little hoppy nice wheaty malt balance. Body had some creamyness and bread.

Source: Cellar Stock
hazy copper, whispy thin fine off white head, touch of lace, sweet bready malty aroma, good body, nicely bittered malt flavor, yeasty character, nice light long bitter finish like a fine ESB, a surprising amount of flavor and very drinkable for what’s named a golden ale

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Sweetish yeasty aroma with a dose of lemon and strange stale bread malt. Clear golden body, very effervescent with a creamy white head. Lightly bitter taste, bitterness seemingly injected in place of any other kind of flavor, dry and crisp on a medium body, gritty hop finish. Not bad.

Ahha! I thought so!
I thought this tasted like an APA, but the word golden on the front had me doubting myself if it might have been a lagar, couldn’t imagine it was with its citrusy hops and toffe malt flavors. A very good representation of an APA, but nothing too spectacular.
