“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.”

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 (520) - 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.

deyholla (9265) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Sampled from the tap at 5 Seasons Prado. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma seems a bit thin but does have a note of sweet grain and hint of hay. Flavor starts slightly sweet but grows to have sweet notes of grain and corn.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 22, 2012
On draught at the Capital Room- Athens, GA. Pours yellowish gold color with lasting fine bubble white head and lace. Light body with slightly effervescent mouth feel. Early hop bitterness matched to mellow hop flavor. Clean light maltiness. A nice light sumer beer for Georgia’s killer summers.

Originally reviewed: 8/17/08. Surprised to find a bottle of this still on the shelf at Bestway in Greensboro. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with just a ring of head on the top. No lacing. Slightly cloudy. Smells of honey-kissed breads, yeast, apples, and flowers. Mouthfeel is a little too spritzy for my liking. Like a soda. Flavors are of pear, apples, Belgian yeast, and finishes very spicy. The Belgian in this beer abounds. I was not expecting that. This is really isn’t what I was expecting at all. It’s boozy, it’s spicy, and it’s bubbly. Different.

Translucent gold with a dense white head. Medium body with some clingy oily adjunct character and medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: adjunct grain, pale malt, german hops.

Taste: adjunct grain, pale malt, german hops, and a metallic minerality.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Eh. The nose is hay a little corn/grain and very subtle floral hops. The beer is golden, kind of hazy, with a small white head. The taste is sweet with some grain and just a touch of hops. The beer is very smooth and crisp.
