COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“With its golden hue and gentle complexity, the Terrapin Golden Ale brings refreshing to a whole new level. Its combination of flavor, smoothness and drinkability is difficult to find in most craft beers. Sometimes even hopheads like us want nothing more than to enjoy a beer that is crisp, smooth and refreshing. That is why we created the perfect session beer - the Terrapin Golden Ale.”

Golden color (no pun intended), very thin head that dissapates very quickly. Its a drinkable beer. I wouldnt buy a 6 pack though. Bitter end by the way.

It was a mild, pale, light-bodied ale with low to mediumish bitterness and low hop and aroma. Liked this a lot. It was smooth and very satisfying.

I spotted this beauty for the first time today at my local package store in bottles, so I had to grab a six pack. As I poured the chilled bottle into the obligatory Pilsner glass, I observed a crystal clear, golden yellow, well carbonated beer with a smallish head. While the look was similar to many macro lagers, the smell was that of a much better crafted beer, with the sweet honey like malts touched by a hint of hops. The presence of slight cooked corn smell was the only distracting point, but based on the description on the neck label, this was likely intentional. The taste was delicate, and far from simplistic. The sweet malts and corn juice were balanced well by the bitterness of the hops. Light and clean, without being grainy or bland, this beer will be well liked by most newcomers to the craft scene. The body was silky smooth and flawless in the mouthfeel department despite the low strength. As the label proclaims, like sunshine in a glass. Never will I have to revert to a macro again.

Creamy flavor, light sweet. Not bitter at all... wonderful palate, Golden honey flavor. very slight bitter... slight citrus... strong sweet... slight malty. Not bad at all... for a light beer.
