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.

JHeath99 (1100) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from the grocery store. Pours a transparent gold with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of crisp malts and pine. Taste of malts and slight hints of fruit.

Bork (321) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Nice, easy, refreshing and rather light brew with a good balance between malts and hops. Some floweriness that is a little tepid but all in all a quality lawnmower beverage.

rondphoto (2200) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 18, 2014
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy orange amber color, thin head cover, no lace. Appealing aroma of sweet malt and a bit of orange. Taste is malt that adds toast and dry grass in the palate, turning, first, mildly bitter, then, slightly sour, in a medium finish. Okay, but not much more than that.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Sample at Birch And Barley/Churchkey. Clear yellowish-gold color with a medium thin white head that recedes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, bready malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, fruit and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Average overall.

Bottle at home thanks to Brent. Pours a clear golden yellow. Light and refreshing. Bright and hoppy. A bit sweet. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (1382) - 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 (570) - 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.

novice101 (308) - - JAN 25, 2014
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 (1380) - Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow with a light head. Super grainy aroma. Grainy but sweet.

Bottle. Golden in color with white head. Aroma of vanilla and hops. Flavor of hops, vanilla and lemongrass. Not a great beer.
