COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ghost River Golden has a mellow, refreshing character, accentuated by Memphis’ soft water. Munich and caramel malts give this beer enough sweetness to balance the crisp, dry finish. O.G. 1048

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pint on tap on Beale St. Irregular head, clear yellow. Light carbonation, soft body, supple. I taste some flour, basement tastes. Other than that, it’s pretty basic.

What a strange beer. When cold, it felt crisp, but as it warmed, the caramel flavor really stood out, almost to the point that it was like butterscotch, though not in a way that suggested a chemical fault. It didn't keep enough brightness through to the finish. Almost like a vanilla or a cream ale. Not terrible, but not a beer likely to please everyone. At least it was free. Bottle at Doubletree Hotel, Memphis at Society for Utopian Studies conference reception.

oobawa (1862) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Craft beer to attract Bud drinkers, I guess. Pours a bright gold, decent head, no lace. Aroma is lager-like, corn and wheat, not all that appealing. Taste lands straight in pale lager territory, mild corn-wheat sweetness mixing with yeasty bread and no hops whatsoever. Feel is decent, but nothing else is. Give it to your uncle when he visits and bitches about all the "weird beer" in your fridge.

djd07 (16298) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Tap at GABF. Pours a clear gold with thick white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is wheat, yeast, caramel. Thin body, wheat, caramel, light finish, decent.

12 oz bottle Bass Pro Pyramid in Memphis. The ale poured a clear golden color with an off white head and modest lacing. The aroma of lemongrass and caramel malts was detected. The ale has a light body with fizzy carbonation. The ale has a sweet finish.

Hazy golden. Small white head. Lacing. Aroma of yeast. Creamy yeast taste. Slight roasted corn note. Very lager like.

3.1
Leighton (22814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at the hotel in Jackson - picked up at Walgreens, West Memphis. Pours clear yellow-gold with a fluffy, white head. Simple bready pale malts in the nose, a little straw. Light sweet flavour with hints of floral hops, crispy cereal, white bread, a little meringue. Light bodied with average carbonation. OK balance on the finish, with more crispy cereal, pale bread, biscuit, hay. An easygoing golden.

2.8
northropfrye (3732) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
On tap at Rum boogies, Memphis. Slight sweet grainy malt with maybe a hint of dryness from hops. A pretty clear yellow body. Pretty basic golden ale.

2.7
