hazy copper, whispy thin fine off white head, touch of lace, sweet bready malty aroma, good body, nicely bittered malt flavor, yeasty character, nice light long bitter finish like a fine ESB, a surprising amount of flavor and very drinkable for what’s named a golden ale
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 12/20
Bottle. Sweetish yeasty aroma with a dose of lemon and strange stale bread malt. Clear golden body, very effervescent with a creamy white head. Lightly bitter taste, bitterness seemingly injected in place of any other kind of flavor, dry and crisp on a medium body, gritty hop finish. Not bad.

Ahha! I thought so!
I thought this tasted like an APA, but the word golden on the front had me doubting myself if it might have been a lagar, couldn’t imagine it was with its citrusy hops and toffe malt flavors. A very good representation of an APA, but nothing too spectacular. PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Columbia, SC - Green’s Discount Beverages - 12 oz bottle - part of a 6 pak mixer. Slightly hazy, medium orange pour - nice thickish white head - solid lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma, with hints of spruce and floral notes. Flavor has some toffee accents, a hint of citrus and
nectarines and finishes with a chocolatey back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. One of the best I had from the mixed six pack. bbp182 (255) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2007
The smell is sweet and hoppy actually. Golden in color, hence the golden ale. Bitter, little hoppy. It’s ok, nothing special.

Bottle from Dragon Pack bought at Total Wine in Huntersville NC. Pours more of a dark amber/copper color than a gold. Aroma is a very light hoppy citrus style. Taste is also citrus with hops and malt. A very decent Pale Ale, and they should have named it so. bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2007
not golden. not golden at all. their lager is golden, this is copper. this is certainly far more a pale than golden. hops, malts, yeast, i think i can taste some water too, smells like, beer. MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2007
Nice and clear. Biscuity aroma with hints of straw. Taste was similar with a strong flavor and bitter finish. Slightly yeasty finish that was a tad dry. Pretty plain but I guess thats what you look for in a golden ale.
