Excellent - one of the best beers that Iíve tried in a while. It reminded me a little of a Belgian brew which was unexpected. Highly recommended.

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.

12oz bottle shared by Brian. Hazy golden-tan. Thin oily white head. Boho noble hop aroma and flavor. Smooth creamy medium golden malt body. Grassy, herbal feel. Quite well done.

12oz bottle, courtesy of ryan. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy, bright, lemony-orange color; off-white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Crisp, dry aroma showing sugar, citrus, and cereal; nicely dry with a mild mineral bitterness. Medium mouthfeel: resiny, mineral and citrus bitterness upfront, but not overtly bitter; crisp, dry at the core, lively carbonation, and just excellent drinkability overall; toasty breadiness and crackers, with a light malty sweetness; perfectly drinkable. Lengthy finish: crackers, toasty malts, and lingering mineral bitterness; excellent dryness and toastiness at the end.

draft at Claddagh’s. This had just been put on the tap and you could taste the freshness. reasonably hoppy, lightly honeyed, a tiny bit watery but still pretty good. easily the best beer they were pouring there.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a clear orange with a small head. Aroma of fruit and bready yeast. Flavor of bread, yeast, sweet fruits. Very pleasant drinking and definitely underrated on this site. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Iím swimming upstream on this one, since I really enjoyed it. Poured to a bright amber-orange with nice off-whit head that last well and left okay lacing. Aroma was a pleasant blend of malty fruit, bread and a touch of honey. Mouthfeel is full and brings inthe slight bitterness of hops to the mix. Flavor picks up the bread and fruit of the nose, and the flavor is smooth and long. A pleasant surprise.

Aroma is slightly gritty grains, yeast with slight overtones of bananas and fruit, hard to place what kind. The flavor is fruit (raspberry or cherry), bananas/cream, yeast and a bitter finish. Surprisingly complex for a Golden Ale, Iíll have to try this again.

Has a bready, yeasty, and citrusy aroma. Taste was more subdued on the hops and came across as malty / yeasty. This beer is still very refreshing, on a hot day I would drink this again. Not very complex, but is what I am mainly looking for in a golden ale.
