thmsboyd (198) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2016
12 fl.oz. bottle BBE: 13 Aug 15. Medium chill (approx. 10 degrees). Pours an amber body with medium haze, and a minimal ring atop. Low intensity aroma of caramelized onion and earthiness. On the tongue, a high-medium malty sweetness gives a very wort-like taste. Light-medium bodied with an abrasive texture, yet medium-low carbonation, a light bitterness eventually comes through in the finish. Clearly past its best, as the best before indicates, its not really fair to review this bottle. However, its always good to be reminded of the faults that beers can develop.

Tap @ Taphouse Boise. Golden color with a finger of tan head. Nose is mild with sweet malt and minimal hops. Same in the taste... a modest floral and fruity flavor is mostly sweet with minimal bitters. Nice malt presence.

WVHouseofBeer (1062) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Nothing special, just a standard blonde. Relatively bland aromas and flavors consisting of light grass, tropical fruit and bread. Watery body with a smooth finish. It is an easy drinker and fairly forgettable.

On tap at B-dubs. Yellow gold pour with a white head. Caramel malt and light hops in the taste and aroma. Generally not a big golden ale but this one was especially clean and refreshing.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
At a AA ball game in Erie. Clear yellow-gold with a ring of white head. The aroma and flavour are very middle-of-the-road, with more malt than hops. Very safe beer.
