Draft - Stone fruit and wood. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of wood and some stone fruit. Solid. Chudwick (3367) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Draft at brewery - nose is nutty oak. Not a fan of golden ales but this is pretty good. Probaly the lightest BA beer I’ve ever had. I like it. Better than I expected. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Received in a snifter from tap.
3.25 A: Clean light orange. Came with just a remnant of a frothy white head.
3.5 S: This is all bourbon as you might expect from a BA golden ale. Leather, apple, apricot, woodiness, light vanilla. Bready malts. Not much else aside from the bourbon.
3.75 T: Tastes like it smells. See above. Not boozy at all, the bourbon is a bit more complementary than in the nose, but still dominates. Bready with sweet neutral maltiness.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch slippery with good creaminess.
4.0 D: It’s good for what it is, but these lighter beers don’t work as well in barrels.

Slightly hazy, golden-yellow with a white head.
Aroma is like a fresh 2X4....
Woody, sweet, with a pronounced alcohol heat and bitter...
Not your typical golden ale by a long shot.

Draft. Fresh wood, lemon, and light biscuit malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Lightly woody lemon malt and moderately bitter hay flavor. Harsh alcoholic finish. b3shine (9138) - Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Draft to snifter at Ei8ht Ball. Looks good; a very hazy orange with eggshell head. Smells good too; loads of oak, vanilla, and caramel from the bourbon barrel with a mildly but well-balanced beer backbone. Tastes like it smells, but a bit less robust, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel that’s smooth for the abv. Good beer. JStax (7173) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Draft pour. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head lf foam. The aroma has manor cornflake and bourbon. Kind of makes me think frosted flakes. Sweet and a little boozy. Big body, medium carbonation, and a slick mouthfeel. Decent. DialSquare (5129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2015

Draught at All Tech fest. Pours a nice color. Light hoppy notes mixed with some bourbon and caramel. Decent.
