Tried batch 009 on 3.29.14 with Adam and Chris. Thanks guys. Smell is just candy and some herbs. Flavor is caramel, old cardboard, and some fruit. Not bad, overall. Extra points for being so good at so old. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2014
12oz bottle Batch 20-Golden Rose (Cellar)-46° in Trappist Glass-Pours a clear ruby red with no head whatsoever. Aroma of fruits and yeast. Taste of the same with a bit of malt coming in on the back end. This medium bodied brew is not bad but would of loved to have tried it fresh.

12 oz. bottle. Labeled as Golden Rose with a batch number of 9 on the label. This is one old ass bottle!! When was batch 9? Got in a trade awhile back. Aroma is fruity yeast and candy sugar.AdamChandler (5052) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Flavor has some cardboard but is real drinkable. Fruit is here with hints of yeast and traces of cardboard dipped in honey. Mouthfeel is light and syrupy. Sugar traces.
Really it’s amazing how well this held up over time. Kind of impressive.
Thanks Chris L for this treat. The bottle looks VERY old. Label says "Golden Rose" Batch 009

A - Looks like flat cream soda. Crimson and gold.

Special pour from a bottle at Hair of the Dog Anniversary party. Hazy orange with a good pale head. Aroma is honey, apricot, peach, roses, candi sugar. Creamy mouthfeel, medium-full body, sweet and fruity on the palate. Taste is candi sugar, apricot, candy apple, peach, pear. Like liquid candi sugar. Wow

Golden Rose Batch 12. Thanks, Joe. Light fruit and spice to the nose. A bit of oxidation. Light-medium body and fairly dry. Lacking complexity and showing its age. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2013
Shared by BucketBoy. Thanks Joe.
The beer is murky, rust orange with no head. The aroma brings some oxidation, well water, earth, mineral. Smooth feel. Very low carbonation. Earthy, mineral water, basement funk. This beer tastes old. Watery mouthfeel. Fun to try, but this is past its prime. SpringsLicker (3641) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Batch #35 from my cellar.
Pours clear dark amber with a thin off-white head.
Sweet candy malt aroma. A bit of alcohol when it’s first poured that dissipates quickly.
Sweet and smooth flavor with a peppery finish.
Smooth and full bodied.
Holding up well.

Hazy reddish amber beer with a tiny white head. Dry palate. Sweetish hibiscus, fairly fruity but with a dry something going on as well. Pinch of pepper in the finish. Interesting beer, could be great if it wasn’t so dry.
