Draught at Ginger Man, NYCOakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2010
Hazy deep blond color. The aroma is a bit fruity and lightly soapy. Sweetish malt flavor, light alcohol feeling. Simple.
Golden colour with loose, thin head. The aroma is peppery, with light floral and phenol and maybe a herbal accent. Dryish, with some herbal character. Decent - peppery and sweetish but nonetheless a balanced interpretation. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2009

Draft at Delaney’s. Golden colour with some white head, leaving abundant lace. The carbonation is right there. Sourness in the finish detracts from the enjoyment. Not a great representation of the style, but still drinkable. Alcohol seemed higher in this one. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2009

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 Draft… Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is sweet, biscuity, sweaty and lightly spicy. Full-bodied and oily with medium carbonation. Very sweet, but it seems there is a frail attempt at balance. Finishes sweet, spicy and lightly acidic. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2007
