"for just a golden ale, this is just about as good as they come. nice fresh aroma, if a little light, of hops and semi sweet malt. great for the style, just pretty good overall."

Cool that it is name after Brett "Hitman" Hart. Hazy golden color. Nice aroma of bread and biscuits. Bready and biscuity up front with a moderate pine/citrus hop finish. Once again, another well made brew from Valley Brewing Co.

Nice light brown with impressive white head. Strong, dank hops aroma - apricoty pine needles. Nice dry pale maltiness, great peachy/coniferous hop character in flavor. Pleasant, moderately malty body, lingering, thorough hoppiness. Very good!

On tap @ Valley brewery poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, light carmel and light fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, straw and a hint of citrus with a dry bitter finish.

Bottled. Hazy yellow in colour. Minor white head. It has a bitter aroma with juniper berries. The flavour is bitter, juniper berries are present. It has a sweet, dry and bitter aftertaste. Great label drawn by Bret "The Hitman" Hart. I watched this guy with his tag team partner Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart in the mid 80-ies when we got SKY-channel. Kinda fascinating then, nice beer now. Would be kinda neat to get an autograph thou ;)

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavour is quite grassy and hoppy. Long mouthdrying feeling. Too dry and bitter for me. One of the best labels around .)
