On tap at Coles, Buffalo NY.medium to Deep golden pour. Muted aroma with notes of honey sweetness. Taste is somewhat crisp tasting with honey notes & light fruitiness. Nothing complicated but not too bad

Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Tap. Nice looking golden ale. Refreshingly yellow pour with a nice white head. Interesting aroma that I loved...lemony, honeyey. The flavor is crisp and with a nice character from the honey and lemon jam going on. I really liked this one a lot, I wish I can find it down here in NY.

mcox90 (2148) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 4, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon and honey, although faint on both counts. Palate is average with low carbonation. Taste is a bland mix of grain, honey and just a hint of hops. Kind of a bland, boring brew. At least it was only $2.99.

kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
22oz Bottle, marked 060209; "20th Anniversary Brew". Pours transparent yellow amber, capped with a tall white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, and wheat, with a hint of honey. Flavor is fairly mild, with wheat and citrusy hops the primary flavors, with faint honey in the background. Fairly thin bodied. Decent enough, and pretty refreshing.

Pours a blend of orange and yellow somewhat golden straw in color. Smells of corn and cereal which dominates the flavor as well.
