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.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 Small fizzy head above a light amber body. Aroma is not too good. Skunky macrobrew cardboard. Maybe a dry bitter yeasty scent also. At least its not heavy. Doesn't taste quite as bad as it smells. Its like a bitter w/ a slightly sweet background and a slightly sweet finish. Maybe some kind of hops in the background, but they didn't taste good. Nothing impressive at all, but still tastes moderately ok.

Belgian ale??? The label calls it a golden ale, whatever that is. It tasted good enough, considering I was drinking it along with some extremely hot chili.

This was OK. I wouldn't order or buy it again but, if it was free and would drink it.

A golden amber color with little head. The aroma was a bit off initially, but after breathing for a while showed off notes of grainy and nutty malt, with small bits of bitter hops. The flavor is reasonably well balanced, though perhaps a bit on the hoppy side. Whole grain bread at the start quickly becomes a Saaz bitterness. This smooth ale quickly becomes almost a pilsener without the effervescence. An interest, although not amazing, beer, this pilsenale.

This beer poured a quickly diminishing small white head with fine sized bubbles.The body was clear and the hue was golden.The nose was on the weak side but I did detect some malt and hops.The flavor was fruity tasting and the mouthfeel was tingly and smooth.There was very little lacing with this beer.

This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind good lacing and a hazy softly carbonated light yellow orange colored body. Ots aroma is mildly hopped and its mouthfeel is smooth and tingly. The flavor is a bit acidic with some yeasty fruity notes.

Decent beer, but it's no Belgian. Very little head, and the taste is very mild.

cloudy golden color,small white foamy head.Nice sweet aroma with a mild spiciness to it,Theres an almost honey like quality in the aroma as well IMO,yeasty.The taste is wheaty and very mildly spiced with some other hard to describe flavors that are fairly mild as well.Mild sweetness to it with a decent hop after taste that is slightly sweet as well as just a slight bite at the very end.It a very unique beer,Kind of hard to describe mainly i haven't had a brew quite like this one but it definately is a brew to have around.

Completely underated, I think. Not as bold as other Saaz/Goldings Belgian Goldens or their interpretations (Orval, Bell's Sparkling, many others I can't think of) this has a spark and a real country freshness, while really low on any anisey spiciness. Could be one hell of a transitional beer for folks. Presentation is beautiful - in the bottle and glass. Just a tad sugary but handled well.

whispy grain, hayish aroma. light creeal with slight grittyness. well hopped with some lemony grassy hop notes. a refreshing summer beer.
