COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.”

Pours a nice golden color. Thin head, slight bready nose. Light citrus flavors, tastes pretty much like a pilsner.

Tastes slightly skunky and yeasty with a slight biscuity malt flavor. Nothing interesting and not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ellolovey (447) - Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, hay, and bread malts. Nose reminds me of sugar cookies. Taste is of hay, vanilla, and earthy malts. Very crisp and refreshing. Definitely a good session beer, but nothing too exciting. Happy Birthday to me :-/

FatWater (20) - Martinez, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Average beer. Smells of pale malts and citrus. Pours a clear golden color with a medium head. Taste is on the malty side for a pale ale. Big, carbonated mouthfeel with a medium body, very refreshing. Overall this is a really good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (5260) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle courtesy of dad while in Georgia. Pours a deep hazy golden body with light white lacing. Aroma is light vanilla, grass, corn and grains. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of grass, cream, vanilla, grain, lemongrass and light malt.

rangerred (897) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy light orange with barely a quarter finger head. Just a little head retention and no lacing. Corn is quite prominent in the aroma along with a very slight bit of DMS. Some wet grass and hay comes through. A little apple and orange up front in the flavor followed by corn and a little bit of cooked vegetables. Mild hop bitterness with a little bit of grass. Drying mouthfeel that is very refreshing. Overall, a pretty middle of the road beer but good for the style. One I would pick up on occasion if it were available near me.

boxofrane (2062) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Draft at lucky lab. Pours clear yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma Is kind of lemon and bread. Taste is sweet lager with some residual sweetness.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Not the best cream ale, though, in my opinion, this is a difficult style to make effectively. Palate is sticky and the body is pretty full. Golden color with bready and yeasty aroma, slightly sweet citrus flavor.

rollinsr (371) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours a very light yellow/straw color with about a finger of foamy white head. Aroma is somewhat stale and yeasty. Flavor is not much better but is bearable. Not a great beer but if it’s all I got then Ill take it.
