I’m not an ale person but I tried this on tap at M&S in Baltimore. Not bad. Creamy and smooth, without the usual bitter ale aftertaste. There was somewhat of an aftertaste but it seemed almost canceled out by sweetness and spices. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 pours golden with a white head, sweet malt aroma with spices, spices, sweet, not bad, but nothing great, good body for a golden ale. iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Well it says gold, people say gold and yup it is most definitely a beautiful golden color. Fairly standard offering and not too distinct in flavor, nose or palate. Hard to imagine it a big winner at the GABF. Fairly built and fine enough to throw a few back. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Bottle-I enjoyed this ale. Poured a golden color (of course) w/a small white head. Floral spicy aroma. Some sweetness up front w/a little bitterness in the finish. Definately preferred this over their pale ale. Much more refreshing. Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2005
A light tasting ale. Is that what they mean by an American style ale? It looked great, large, creamy white head over a golden body. Nice hop balance. Not much aftertaste. Goes down well, smooth, pleasant.

has a nice golden color to it. but that is all this beer has to offer. another beer that doesn’t really stand out. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Definitely golden in color. Green grains and malts. Suprisingly rich in palate. Tastes are simple and beery. The mineral finish tastes somewhat artificial. NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 26, 2005
wow, who would have guessed this beer would pour a golden color. Fizzy head that falls quickly. Grainy malt aromas with a little grassy thing going on. Mild bready/grainy flavors. Green finish. cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2005
On tap in Baltimore. Not bad, but nothing exciting to me. I like more flavor, bitterness and punch in my beer. Easy drinking, but suffered in contrast to the Sam Adams Lager I had following. Too light and innoffensive- perhaps a good transition beer for macro drinkers. RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Pours golden to light amber with a thin white head. Light caramel malt aroma with no apparent hops. Flavor is much like the aroma. Creamy on palate, but lacks any complexity in the malt or hop characters.
