COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp golden ale with a delicate hop finish. This is our lightest ale and it is brewed with a bit wheat malt for body and Munich and Aromatic malts for and undertone of honey-like sweetness. Lightly dry-hopped with Cascade hops for that classic American golden ale aroma.

Draft at Union Station bar, whatever they’re calling it now.Thin draft head., a mild nose with toasty malts. Solid ale taste without the extra sweetness that I sometimes get with a blond ale. Helped, no doubt, by its palatable dose of American hops. Light ale esters, tickley carbonation.

Aroma is light and floral. Taste is bland and so is the finish. Light and crisp, but could be more flavorful.

Slightly hazy gold with a small white head. The aroma has some toasted and malty notes, with slightly earthy, floral, and citrusy hops. The flavor is much the same, with a little more citrus. Nicely balanced finish, very satisfying.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a very dark golden color with a medium sized creamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and sweetish with yeast and cardboard notes. The flavor was tangy and semi sweet with a bit of yeast, a touch of cardboard and faint vague floral hops. medium length finish. Medium body and fairly smooth. Not good.

Looks like golden macro beer to me. The smell is very lager-like. corn, rice, that whole business. maybe a bit of german influence in the yeast strain here, but other than the sweet corn flavor, I don’t get much in this one.
