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.”

Hazy golden appearance with a small white head. Flavor is of straw with a little cream vanilla with in. Pretty bland, but unoffensive.

AWISLguy (1175) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from JenniK via ck1, thanks bro! Best by 11/1/2014 date. Pours golden (duh) with a bit of a white head. Aroma is sweet malty with some tangy yeast. Taste is sweet malty, somewhat fruity with spicy belgian yeast and some bread. Light to medium bodied. Finishes quite sweet and surprisingly long. Solid summery offering. 12.7

jdb288 (480) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
Draft. Pours clear gold with slight head, quickly fades. Aroma is wheat, hay, earth, faint lemon. Taste is mixture of those with some mild apricot notes. Does have a bit of a creamy mouthfeel but not a major component of this beer. In the end, forgettable.

This is what a macro would brew, a very light beer super drinkable with no real taste besides the faintness of hops with some malts.

Mittenator (1233) - Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow with a light head. Super grainy aroma. Grainy but sweet.

ttroha (237) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden in color with white head. Aroma of vanilla and hops. Flavor of hops, vanilla and lemongrass. Not a great beer.

Imaena (1796) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Draught. This is one of my least favorite Terrapin beers to date. It has an off plasticy taste that i hope is from bad lines.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft. Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of vanilla, grass, light citrus. Taste is lemongrass, more vanilla. Easy drinking.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Yeast, light lemon, and slight Belgian note in the aroma. Pale yellow, one-finger somewhat rocky head. Mild fruity initial, light peach and lemonade / some timid bitterness in mid / finishes clean and a bit flat. Thin-medium body. Not so bad. Restrained all around. A pleasant sessionable brew, but I’d switch to something else rather than have another.

deaconmike (363) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours mostly clear golden yellow. Aroma is yeasty and musty. Taste is slightly sweet balanced with light hops. Mouthfeel is creamy. Carbonation is moderate. I didn’t really care for this one.

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