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.”

Just a creamy English almost style ale. Not my cup of tea but had to try. A best seller?

Shocked that the flavor isn’t more present in this Brewery’s product. I love terrapin beers and I didn’t think I would find one that I would never need to drink again but... It tasted like light pilsner/pale lager. I don’t think I’ll ever need to drink this beer again. It might be a good one to rope in customers that are unsure whether they should switch from m*ll*r or b*d w*ss*r. Still love terrapin though!

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a dull, mostly clear yellow-gold color with a small eggshell white head that settles into a small ring. Aroma of corny grains, pale and sweet malts, straw and grass, and sugar. Flavor of sweet and pale malts, straw, grassy hops, sugar, and a little bit of red apple. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a sweet, mineral mouthfeel. Not a bad cream ale and sure easy to drink, but this really isn’t my style.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2011
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.

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.

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.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2010
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.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
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...

mixmasterob (881) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
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 wouldn’t be a bad session, pool side brew, but there are better ones in the same category.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Grainy aroma and taste with a brassy earthy finish.
