Golden ale describes the look perfectly but the taste is a suprise. The initial taste is smooth but goes away in a few seconds. Not much of an aftertaste to savor. Easy to drink, but not very satisfying.

Cloudy golden color with chunky of yeasts suspended throughout. Big, rocky off-white head with high carbonation. Aroma is weak but has that Belgian medicinal smell. Thin and fizzy palate. Flavors are very subdued. Grainy malt flavor and slightly medicinal. N bit weak for a belgian ale, but may be a good teaser to get someone into Belgians.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Amber body with weak white head. Unimpressive aroma of malts and hops mix. Tasted weak and watery in the mouth. Not very much in the flavor department. Wouldnt touch again.

Dry herbal hoppiness, toasty belgian malts. Light golden, pilsenerish color. A bit pisenerish all around, actually, quite clean and easy going. Dont know what it is, but it aint bad.

The Brothers choice of category fooled me for a while, and I was looking forward to a "golden ale" in the way of a Duvel, and only later realized they are using the latest American nomenclature for kolsch. Small head, lovely gold color. Aroma: buttery, spicy, grassy, herbal, very dry. To quote them:"Belgian malts balanced by Saaz and Golding hops produce a unique and savory ale, light in color, but not in flavor." A far cry from a Belgian, actually. Texture is thin, finish comes and goes. Theyre very earnest, and have excellent package design, these brothers, but they dont live up to their own hype. A satisfactory lawnmower beer, but not much more.

Hazy golden body with a good deal of yeast dusties. Short-lived white head. Weak aroma with some lemon citrus and sweet carboard. The taste features all the flavor of a Kenmore refrigerator box with some lemon juice sqeezed over it. Not so good, guy. Bottled 10/14/2003, so it's not that old.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 Small fizzy head above a light amber body. Aroma is not too good. Skunky macrobrew cardboard. Maybe a dry bitter yeasty scent also. At least its not heavy. Doesn't taste quite as bad as it smells. Its like a bitter w/ a slightly sweet background and a slightly sweet finish. Maybe some kind of hops in the background, but they didn't taste good. Nothing impressive at all, but still tastes moderately ok.

Belgian ale??? The label calls it a golden ale, whatever that is. It tasted good enough, considering I was drinking it along with some extremely hot chili.

This was OK. I wouldn't order or buy it again but, if it was free and would drink it.

A golden amber color with little head. The aroma was a bit off initially, but after breathing for a while showed off notes of grainy and nutty malt, with small bits of bitter hops. The flavor is reasonably well balanced, though perhaps a bit on the hoppy side. Whole grain bread at the start quickly becomes a Saaz bitterness. This smooth ale quickly becomes almost a pilsener without the effervescence. An interest, although not amazing, beer, this pilsenale.
