Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Semi-hazy golden yellow color. White head starts out frothy but becomes a ring of lace very quickly.
3.5 S: Grainy and corn.
3.5 T: Sweet graininess upfront. Good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Also a touch of hop flavor.
3.5 M: Light body. Good carbonation. Surprisingly creamy.
3.5 D: Somewhat boring, but goes down well.
Serving type: bottle

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks like miller lite. Nose almost non-existent. Crisp, yet creamy and lemony on the palate. Not terrible, but not great. Definitely not our first choice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: snifter. pours a nice yellow color with some light orange tones. Nice white head. good to excellent head retention. rather impressive lacing.
S: tons of corn malt aromas. light hop aroma, mostly bitters. not much more than that.
T: some corn malts in the flavor, with a subtle finishing hop flavor, mostly citrus, but light.
M: very smooth and crisp. a little too carbonated at first. low to medium body.
D: extremely drinkable...perhaps my new golf course beer. very nice cream ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden, hint of orange and little hazy. Smallish white head with some lacing. Smells of bread, malts and raisins. Light to medium body, with aggressive carbonation. Opens up very sweet and a little tart, some grains and citrus. The finish is on the dry end. Not poorly made or anything, just not my kind of brew. Maybe better after working/exercising outside in the summer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle/12oz - Pours a golden yellow in color with a small white head that quickly faded to a thin covering over the beer, Aroma is a tad skunky with malty grains and little of no hops. Flavor is grainy, slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. OK, but not my favorite...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, clear golden pour. Aroma was of straw like malts, very pilsner like, almost no hop character. Light malt forward flavors, crisp, light and refreshing. A somewhat creamy mouthfeel surprised me but overall it was quite light bodied and dull. I guess this wouldnít be a bad session, pool side brew, but there are better ones in the same category.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear sample yellow -- nothing like the orange photo on here. Small white head dissipates quickly. Tastes of grain, corn, and straw. Like a less watery Budweiser. Not my style. Would drink if dehydrating in the hot sun and no macros were available. Thatís about it. Why do good breweries even make this kind of thing? I donít get it. Pee in a puddle, add some straw, thatís it. Some brewer actually tasted this and said "Yep, thatís perfect, exactly what we want." Try a little harder folks. Terrapinís great ales are indeed great. And their swill is equally swill.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale hazy yellow color with a very small quickly fading white head. It has a clean fresh slightly citrus aroma. It has a wonderfully creamy taste to it with maybe a little cream of wheat taste. This is a simple non-complex beer but I enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Terrapin has created the quintessential session beer with Golden Ale. Medium bodied, crisp, just enough flavor and alcohol to make this beer an all day drinker.
