On tap. Poured a deeper golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of floral, buttery, and lightly fruity. The butteriness became stronger as I drank this one. Tastes of floarl, fruity, lighter butteriness, and some dough. Light alcohol finish. jcwattsrugger (12550) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2007

Cask at Brazen Head. Very pale golden beer with a thick white head. Soft pilsner malt. A touch of earthy fruity character. Lemony citrus, light spice and a soft earthy bitterness. A touch of lemongrass and lime character. A touch of mint and raisiny fruit on the back. I like it. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2007

[Draft @ Barcade] Poured a hazy golden amber color with a small white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, dough, diactyl, caramel and a bit of citrus. Taste was on the sweeter side, buttery popcorn, toffee malts, light dough, and woody hops. I’m assuming the butteriness was intentional, but I thought it left this overall sticky.

Tap at Hop Devil. Pours a slight chilll haze, medium gold with a whtie head and some lace. Aroma actually has a moderate amount of Diacetyl with its bready doughy malt character, and some herbal earthy hops. Bready doughy, some citric wheaty hints, toasted malts, more diacetyl- light butteryness, and a clean floral hop bitterness. Wierd- seems like it coud be an English pale ale, but the body is a bit big, and is a bit more malt in there- typical english diacetyl which I would have preferred if it was absent, but whatever- it’s english. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Cask @ Brazen Head. Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was straight out lemons with flowers and some alcohol. Also included was some sweaty, earthy and tangerine notes. The flavor was odd. Grainy and lemony with some floral hops. Dry bitter finish with a light to medium body. I went back and forth with the flavor score and I’ll go with the 6 versus the original 5. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2008
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Hazy golden color with a puffy head. Aroma is floral and balanced with a touch of butter and some light fruity notes. Flavor is well balanced. Begins with some floral and ester notes and a light and fruity middle with a sweet and buttery finish. Not a bad sipping beer. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2007
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. A nice surprise, this one. Poured into a snifter, it’s a lovely golden color with moderate carbonation. A bright floral aroma is immediately apparent, and this is borne out in the tasting, with a real hop vibrancy and a quirky but winning finish of tropical fruits and a tad of butter. Combines the perky qualities of a fine pilsner with the flavor of a nice Belgian blonde. English strong ale? Why not?! shigadeyo (3797) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Unknown Date: Brooklyn Bright Golding Ale is transparent gold n tolor with a dense, creamy, white head that leaves thick lacing. There is a light to moderate level of carbonation. The aroma is what I can only describe as creamy pale malts and there it has a slight buttery/Diacetyl flavor. However, this beer is balanced by a crisp bitterness in the finish. It is slightly dry overall with a hint of peat smoke in the finish as well. This is a decent beer that I would like to try again someday...
Draught (pint). Rating #29 for this beer.
