Bottle at Danís courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! Pour is gold in appearance with a frothy white head and good lacing. Floral, soapy, light grass, vegetables, and grain in the aroma. Taste is grain, DMS, floral, spice, soap, and straw with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Nothing really off-putting and sessionable. Hmmmmm. arminjewell (9581) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of dms, biscuit, earth, slight grass, touch of grain, vanilla, hints of butter as well, lots of things wrong. Taste is similar, some sweet veggie and butter, hints of earth, grass, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Just ok, pretty interesting but has some problems. adnielsen (10601) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle @ Danís house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a white head. Straw, light veggie, light DMS, hay aroma. A bit tan, somewhat bitter, straw, grassy flavor. Blah. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours from the bottle a clean, deep golden color with a solid amount of persistent carbonation and a very low, thin white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma has a very crisp grainy nose balanced extremely well with a sharp noble hops bitterness and some mild orange citrus. Flavor is perfect. Great hops bitterness to compliment a strong pilsner malt backbone. Very clean and perfectly refreshing. Body is perfect with a slight acidic kick but with a very sharp carbonated bite that hits the palate hard and quick. Overall a very good beer. I love the punch of the hops but the lightness of the beer. Perfect summer/session brew for any time. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Yellow-gold with whispy white head / Bright, delicate nose of pine, citrus, and tropical fruit / Light to medium body, a touch watery, with moderate bitterness / Somewhat watered down flavors of orange, pineapple, passion fruit, pine, and honey / A number of excellent elements, but the body letís this one down.

Good smooth golden. Inhale with an ok nose. Drinks nice with clean after taste. Local. Bomber bottle.

Not their best effort, odd funk up front with a lemon finish. For a summer beer it is more like a fall German offering. Slight barely smell.

22 oz. bomber. Bright golden pour with a medium thick white head. The aroma focuses on pale malts, dough, and a touch of honey sweetness. There are some mild floral and grassy hop notes. I get a touch of earth notes as well. Flavor is mildly sweet with a light bitter hop notes. Lots of grass and hay, maybe of a touch of citrus mixed with pale fruits. This is nice, albeit subtle. This is not the twin of Gossamer, but perhaps a cousin from somewhere down the line. ccex (1284) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle pours a clear orange color with a decent white head and a little lacing. Smell is full of piney and floral hops. Aroma is more subdued, with the same hops, a taste of honey, and a touch of caramel. Body is light but not watery without too much carbonation. This one is very easy to drink - dare I say sessionalble. So far this is the only enjoyable golden/blonde ale Iíve truly enjoyed. As a plus, it honors my favorite political speech from the 1896 elections(when congress was controlled by gold and silver miners). This one is good enough that I have to try the one that Revolution Brewing named after V. Eugene Debs. nuplastikk (6202) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2012
22oz bomber courtesy of Brian. Filtered orange-tan, thin steady white head. Mellow, light to medium bodied. Really sessionable, clean golden malt tones. Really well balanced, delicate hop balance. Simple, but quite nice.
