COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong golden ale showcases a variety of the ingredients and brewing methods that help differentiate Triangle beers. The Strong Golden is fermented at a higher temperature than our other beers adding an undercurrent of fruitiness (although there is no fruit in the beer). Very lightly filtered the Golden exhibits complex mouthfeel, strong malt flavors, a spicy hop presence and soothing alcohol warmth, followed by a clean, dry finish. It is excellent with food as well as served by itself. Malts: Two row pale, Cara Pils, White Wheat, Accidulated malt, and Belgian Candi Sugar Hops: Magnum, Styrian Golding, and Saaz

12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that fades away by the second sip and leaves scant lace. There is a hint of Belgian yeast in the aroma along with some white sugar. The flavor is mild Belgian yeast that is lightly fruit along with some white sugar sweetness. A bit of lemon in the flavor as well. Mild bitterness at the finish.

from can via NC via John! interesting beer - golden pour with nice aroma; the interesting part is the taste - creamy (and a creamy palate) with a little unidentified funk - nothing bad, just different; will try again and re-rate.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours golden hay in the glass with a fizzy white head. Aromas of citrus and spiced yeast tickle the nostrils before a sip of crisp, balanced orange, spiced apple and slightly boozy yeast coat the palate. Finish is smooth and clean with the lightest lingering of orange rind.

Very interesting beer that had a hint of belgian taste and a hint of a straight golden ale. Aroma was very sweet and sugary but the taste was smooth. Good alcohol and it comes in a can. This would be a nice beer to have while camping or doing outdoor activities. Pack it in, pack it out.

12 oz. can as a trade bonus from JCB- thanks, J! Pours a pale gold color with a small bone white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, pale malts, dried fruits, straw, and booze. Flavor of apples, white grapes, sweet malts, and minerals. Tart, dry mouthfeel with a light body and moderate carbonation. The flavor hides the 8% ABV well, but the nose does not. Really unusual beer, and I had no idea what to expect. Would work well as a lawnmower beer if you want to finish with a buzz.

nickd717 (3477) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 24, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a surprisingly clear golden color with a one-finger white head that leaves a thick ring on the glass. Subtle aroma, mildly floral and estery with sweet malts and just a hint of Belgian yeast. Not too Belgian on the flavor - less so than the IPA in fact. Pale malt and fruity esters dominate. Somewhat sweet. Slick on the mouthfeel with average body and carbonation. Good enough, but misses the mark a bit style-wise.

very good Belgian flavors and aromas with a little extra sweetness that distinguishes it as an American Belgian-style. didn’t seem very high alcohol
