Nearly clear golden orange. Aroma is rich goldings. Very spicy, somewhat sweet malts to compliment. Rich Golding flavor, medium bodied, lotsa hop flavor with a fairly sweet finish. Quite enjoyable even if it lacked complexity. rocbyter (2164) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Sampled 1/5/8 at Delaney’s in New Haven. Light hop aroma with a slight amount of fruity grains. Clear golden color with a medium white head with good lacing. Mild Belgian start with a bitter hop finish. A little body. jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2008
From the tap poured golden with a good amount of head. Kind of heavy hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2008
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. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Cask at the Brazen Head. Aroma of oranges / tropical fruit, some green raisins and some grassy bitterness. The flavor has more of the dark fruit and raisins, with some earthy malt, and both grassy bitterness and dark fruit in the aftertaste.

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. Maverick34 (3314) - New York, USA - JAN 20, 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.
(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. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2008
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.
