Clean and steril aroma with light gold appearance. This tastes like your typical gold ale, very light. Same old.

Had this in Denver with Marc Caron. Easy drinking ale with some malty flavor and moderately dry feel in your mouth. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Boulder Beer at Denver International Airport, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light crackery malt, not much else. Flavour is clean and light, with cereal malt sweetness, not a whole lot else. Clean and drinkable, but boring and forgettable.

12 oz. can. Pour was golden with a lasting off white head. Aroma of sweet grain, grass, hops. Taste was light sweet, sour, bread, grassy hops.

Beaver (1872) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2016
12 oz can. Pours clear orange gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet vegetal malts with a little honey.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with a little bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, like a slightly better Bud.

Tap at Ted’s. Orange-gold with a fine head. Nose of minerals, grapefruit, a touch of caramel. Quite simple. More citrus in the flavor. A decent, simple golden ale.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep golden color with a tiny head of white foam. The head fades super fast leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a bready aroma with a good showing of a caramel. Along with these smells comes some fruitiness of harvest fruits and a little bit of a hay smell. Taste- The taste begins with a rather thick bready taste mixed with a little bit of doughiness. Some fruitiness of harvest fruits (peach apricot and pear) develop more as the taste advances. Other flavors of a light herbal hop nature as well as tastes of caramel and a rather off musty tastes later come on. In the end, one is left with a odd, and slightly disagreeing malty and sort of sweet, but strangely hopped and musty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is slightly thicker with a carbonation level that is rather low. For the bready and sweet tastes of the brew it was OK, but a higher carbonation would have helped hide the must and made for a more refreshing brew. So overall it was just OK. Overall – Not really one I would necessarily recommend. It has an odd aftertaste and the flavors don’t really meld all that well together. Not one I will go back to any time soon.

Poured from the 12oz can into a shaker glass. Golden color with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is a touch sweet and grainy with some grassy and floral hops. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. OK, not great.

Draft sample at the Walnut brewery, as Walnut Buffalo Gold, 11/23/15
From the notes: Decent blonde ale with some light hop notes on the aroma and some malty hints too. Similar flavor. Lighter body and easy drinking. Not too bad, but nothing super memorable.

Appropriate to style in every way. Pours a deep gold with a creamy consistent head. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming, and is balanced by a strong malt backbone. Perfect for what it is.

This is my first from Boulder Beer and I really like it. Very smooth easy to drink not bitter pours a nice golden hazy.
