“With its golden hue and gentle complexity, the Terrapin Golden Ale brings refreshing to a whole new level. Its combination of flavor, smoothness and drinkability is difficult to find in most craft beers. Sometimes even hopheads like us want nothing more than to enjoy a beer that is crisp, smooth and refreshing. That is why we created the perfect session beer - the Terrapin Golden Ale.”

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2016
On tap, poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is a pronounced grains note with a light sweet lemon backing note. It pours a brilliant and clear, oily gold topped by a soft, soapy, abundant white head that retains well with fluffy islands, and leaves a good lace. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The texture is slick with foamy carbonation and a medium light body. The flavor profile is, up front, grains and lemon, with a crisp and clean finish that’s refreshing with a mild citrus zip that turns to bread with a light buttery character. The aftertaste is a light citrus rind.

(Thanks, James "jbruner") Can. A- Corn, grains, straw. A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, slightly sweet, grains, cereal, grassy, subtle spice, butter. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish. O- Let’s be honest, who likes cream ales. It doesn’t take much to dislike them. I can’t say I have any hate against this but I could leave it. Just bland and boring and a bad aftertaste.

As "Golden Ale" in a sweet can. Pours hazy to cloudy straw gold with a bigger foamy, pillowy eggshell head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves honey, biscuits, light citrus and spicy hops, and golden malt. Somewhat sweet, lightly bitter. Medium bodied, creamy, slightly oily, with a drying lightly toasty honey malt finish. A really nice drinkable brew that would definitely be good in those steamy Georgia summers. I dig this a lot.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Corn and grains, pretty bland Appearance- A golden yellow with slight murkiness. Has a small white head. Taste- Malt and corn, not much for me. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- A fairly average beer, I expect more from Terrapin.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can from jbruner poured into a can. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is crisp malt, light body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is light fruit, pilsner malt, crisp hops, and dry finish. Easy to drink, but not much flavor.

Old rating. Easy drinker, but nothing especially wonderful. Golden color. Pale malts, mild bitterness, some lemon peel. Not as creamy as I would have thought.
