Brilliant golden ale with inviting citrus fragrance of late added Golding hops. The fine hop and light malt aromas carry through to the palate to give an ale that is full but refreshing and with a clean bitter finish.

It smells and tastes like someone threw some olives and spinach into my Budweiser.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2016
(American Bottle) Dark copper to brown in color. Small lid of tan bubbles. Caramel, toasted malt and earthy hops aromas. A sweet and hint of sour in the start. Toasted malt leads to a bitter acidity. Quite light in feel. More an Irish ale than a blond. Either way a bit earthy/dirty and rather shallow. 4/10

A mild, bready beer with a bright, fruity finish. Hops are subtle but dominate the overall character of the beer.

Bottle: slight haze on an amber pour with a large frothy white head. Aroma is slightly floral with honey, toasted grain, and a vegetal note. Flavor is light and highly carbonated, almost tea-like, with caramel, honey, overripe/vegetal tasting peach, a small bit of grain and a peppery bitter. Not sure about this one, it may have past it prime, it is thin on flavor and has off flavors, but still some quality with the caramel/honey high carbonation; I would not got out to buy it again.

crossovert (11398) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
12 oz twist off bottle brewed in Rochester, NY. It is not a golden or blond ale but a normal bitter-type beer. Smell of olive and english yeast, taste of vegetal garbage. Mouthfeel is thin and soda-like.

Patrickctenchi (6086) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Murky, amber-brown, instantly vanishing head. Scent is caramel, a little fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, bread.... Sweet, fairly refreshing... Just a hint of bitter. Pretty good.

It’s decent, but I think I was fooled by the name into expecting something in the vein of a Skull Splitter. Not the same ballpark.
