The beer was fair. This was my second Golden the weekend I had it, and this was 10 times better, yet this ale is far from a "good" beer in my opinion. There are many APAs out there... I think I will continue my quest for the bigger and better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with fair near white head ring. Very much to the descriptoion. it’s like an english pale ale with an american citrusy twist. Smooth and drinkable with a lingering slight bitterness on the palate. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a beer I try to always keep around. Medium to dark golden color with a good head. Clean, crisp, caramel and hops taste with a little bitterness in the end. Strong bouquet of grains, malt, caramel and yeast in a good way. Goes great with a Shrimp Po Boy down at the Yorktown Pub on the beach in the summer... make that winter too!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice twist on a simple lighter ale. A beautiful sweet aroma with a hint of citrus.
Unfortunately drank out of a bottle, so giving them the benefit of the doubt on appearance, but the flavors are pretty simple and not all that interesting, although highly drinkable. Smooth crisp palate cleans gently.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
December 2009. An average pale ale with good malty flavors, but a bit on the boring side. Hops on the finish. Pine, citrus, caramel aromas.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, dark gold. Slightly hoppy, yet smooth. Goes down real easy; a good choice for a session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear medium amber/gold with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Floral and malt aroma. Flavor has slightly bigger bite with a caramely malty forward. Bitter aftertaste. All in all a very drinkable beer.
