Bottled, thanks Lilith, Nigredo & Panzerfaust! Clear pale golden, minimal head. Phenolic nose. Sweetish, fruity and light bodied with strawberries and burning grappa. Near no bitterness. Flawed and alcoholic. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Aroma is light tropical fruit with a hint of yeastiness. Unusual. Actually smells a bit like cider. Very pale golden color with no head. Starts a bit like shortbread, something like wet paper is next (not a bad thing, you have to try it). Then tropical fruit comes through a bit. There may be vanilla, and vanilla tends to confuse me. (check the Anderson Solstice brews). Decent mouthfeel. This is dry. Astringent even. The bitterness is delicate. The astringency is unusual for something with this sort of fruit. I think these folks have come up with something unique. We need to expand our palates. Ratman197 (14834) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bomber poured a hazy pale yellow with a minimal disappearing white head. Aromas of bread dough and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light straw and a faint hint of citrus with a crisp clean finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2007
660. Pours nearly crystal clear dark straw with a towering, thick platinum blonde head that falls away quickly to nothing. Very intermittent lacing. Huge sour nose of DMS, light funk, a bit of diacetyl, sweat, and some foot. Maybe one of the nastier smelling pale lagers. Watery, fizzy, sharp, raw, unpleasant, and sour on the attack as well as the mid-palate, with re-treads of all the nasty notes from the nose. Pretty horrid. Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of apple and chemicals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty sad.

Bottle:   Straw in color, large rocky white head, spotty lacing, mild carbonation.   Looks okay at
least.   Soft grassiness and floral notes on the nose.   Little bit of DMS/Band Aid on first sip.
Otherwise a bit mealy.   Not as bad as other seem to be rating it, but certainly not great.   Loads of straw
or grasiness on the tongue, especially on the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Some fruit skin on
the finish.   A little bit of a metallic twang emerges after the finish.   Honestly, not as bad as everyone
says it is, but certainly not great. thedm (6181) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2010
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of yellow brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a semi-hazy with floating particulate yellow white colored body. The mild aroma was floral and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of floral coriander hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special. notalush (5875) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2009
I bought this beer for a new country rating, and it turns out I already had a rating from Argentina - I really need to stop doing that - anyway, this beer isn’t nearly as terrible as the ratings suggest - the first whiff presents tart, dry, white wine character, but deeper sniffs reveal, surprisingly, nothing at all - weird - fairly creamy mouthfeel - a bit earthy character up front, some crisp herbal bitterness, dry malt qualities - things are a bit muddled and indistinct, and the bitterness hangs around in the finish for a bit too long - not terrible, just boring - when will I stop being suckered in by marketing phrases like "fine aged ale" in fancy-schmancy gold lettering?

Bottle: Clear gold, light puffy white head. Some lacing. The nose is a bit starchy and sour with metalic notes. The flavor is dry and citrusy, strong acidity and a biting metal note. The finish is near cidery and some of that vanilla they’ve been warning me about. A bit lost on this one, but I recon if I were there, shit, I can’t lie, I still wouldn’t drink it there. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 20, 2006
This golden ale pours a light yellow gold color from a 660ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is artificial, grapefruit, mango and something else I don’t care to identify. A medium to light bodied golden ale. Malts are fruity but not sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and floral. Chemical and adjunct loaded. This stuff is really nasty. Its almost like a beginner homebrew gone horribly wrong, but no homebrew could be this chemical tasting. I keep seeing Bill Walton saying “HORRIBLE…. JUST HORRIBLE..” I swear I am waiting for the glass to mutate into something. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is horribly sweet and chemical tasting.
