Prairie Path Ale is a Belgian-style golden ale. Prairie Path Ale is a full flavored, slightly bitter, clean and refreshing ale. The Belgian malts along with the Saaz and Goldings hops give this beer great drinkability.

This is a beer similer to Leffe blonde but slightly better. It has a full body and a really great bitter sweet taste. I have not had many blondes (which is what this should be listed as) but I like its chewy mouthfeel and it was very drinkible. Good stuff and only a mild aftertate as a drawback.

Light golden color. There are notable candy sugar and malt flavors, and it ends dry. Not aggressive enough for a Belgian. Agree it's a golden or APA. Almost but not quite.

Bready yeasty aroma. Fine bubble carbonation. Deep golden in color with cloudiness.Thick rocky off white head. Lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Tart, bitter, grainy, slightly sweet flavor. Creamy. Pretty good.

Deep golden color with floaters. Little head, but poured very cold. Very bubbly. This one lies on the bitter side of things. The finish is dry and bitter. Like an english bitter with less malt character and more bitter.

Aroma has some light, cereal maltiness, light pepper and hop spice but overall is a bit faint. Medium golden in color, lightly hazy with some odd, suspended particles that appear to be pulp? The white head is decent, though, and so is the lacing. Flavor has some slight tartness, lightly bready malt and the spicy presence of Saaz is unmistakable. Finish sees a touch of citric sourness, bitterness and astringency. Light bodied, palate is fairly bubbly. I think this is actually a Blonde Ale. Even looking at it in that light, though, the flavors are just very incongruous. There's no flow. I think it could use more refined malt flavors and a little less harshness.

(tap) Wasn't really impressed with what I saw. Kind of weak for a Belgian Ale.

This beer reminds me of an amber with a little more body, since I’m not intimite with the Belgian Ale style. It has the hops. Nothing spectacular, but an OK session brew.

Slightly cloudy light-orange in color, no head. Sweet malt aroma, very faint. Refreshing, crisp flavor that is mildly hoppy. Very light and watery body.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Golden color with a smallish white head. Light malty aroma. Watery feel with few qualities of a belgian golden ale. Golden - Yes, Ale - Check. Just not a belgian ale. Yeast seem off as well as some dirty malt flavors. Call this a american ale and it get a much better score.

Blah. Not anything close to a belgian ale. Weak and lacks the yeastiness that we all look for.
