"this golden ale has a nice sweet, floral and herbal aroma, is light-medium bodied, and quite easy drinking. Nothing spectacular, but the sweetness and mellow belgian yeast go well together."

obguthr (4097) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Really janked up can. Someone must have dropped it. The bottle shop owner didn’t charge me for it, which is good because I thought I already rated it. Good karma. Rich honey and lemon nose. Cloudy amber, headless. Much less prominent honey flavor, applecore. A surge of dandelion, sudden but neither strong nor distinct. Raw potato finish. Despite the can being compromised, there was still carbonation, soft and unseen. Sessionable and unique.

Stuu666 (3570) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours golden, light fruit, toffee, sweet, sugary, some caramel.

Garrold (1731) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Tap at Crafty Crow, Nottingham. Hazy gold. Film of white head. Ripe banana. Clove. Light toffee. Taste is light sweet, turning dry. Light chew on the palate, but feels clean. Finish is dry, with a light bitterness.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Muddy color thin layer of head. Taste of malt, slight bitterness with a nutty finish. Decent

DocJitsu (1049) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours a murky, dark honey-golden color with a short-lived white head with a greenish hue. Green grape nose. Full mouthfeel that ends up feeling a little dry. Pickled corn that starts out mildly sweet but gets funky toward the finish.
