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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (7056) - 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.

Fruity, floral hops, pale grain malts. Clear gold, small, white, frothy head. Light bitter. Floral hops intensify, straw, grain malts, soft carbonation. OK Golden Ale, slightly light throughout. Keg at brewpub, Chicago.

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 dont get much in this one.

Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is herbal, floral, and earthy hops, a little skunky, and some bread malts. Flavor is similar, a little on the sweet side. Has a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Okay.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Draught at the Friendly Toast, 2/27/16.
Minimally hazy, clear straw golden body shows light carbonation and a small, white head with moderately-low to low retention.
Grains, soft herbs and bits of dry cookie-like malt character grace the nose. Theres some cereal-like character which kind of dulls the hop accents, though they are fruitier than Id like for a golden ale, with light citrus and orange peel-like character.
A bit bready, dusty and biscuity, with zero sweetness and a bit of huskiness/graininess on the finish. Medium carbonation is not particularly tight, leading to a somewhat loose, watery texture and an odd fruity-citrus-meets-biscuit-and-baked-bread character that isnt all that appealing.
