We brew our Strong Golden Ale all-grain, giving it a deep and complex taste.

Belgian aromatic malts add hints of dried fruit, while generous Noble and West Coast hops deliver an earthy spiciness. It finishes semi-dry with lingering tropical fruits and spicy notes from Belgian yeast.

Suggested food pairings: Roasted chicken, grilled pork chops, salmon, Portobello mushrooms, Gouda or Gruyere cheese.

frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Golden brown topped by a big white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of bread dough, fruity yeast esters and some floral notes. Light malty sweetness, fruity yeast, a hint of bubblegum. A bit of peppery spice and hop bitterness in the finish.

PhillyCraft (7934) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle as extra through trade, orange hazy pour with small head. Notes of Belgian spice, fruit, malt, wood, citrus and clove. Medium carbonation with a fuller body.

12 ounce bottle from Ale Yeah, Roswell. Pours a hazy orange color with a monstrous 7 finger tan fizzy head. Good head retention. Aroma of bready malts, yeast, citrus and a slight tartness in the finish. The taste is bread, caramel, spice, yeast, bright citrus. Medium bodied. Quite nice.

JHeath99 (1680) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber. Nice bit of head with great lacing. Aroma of spices. Taste of spice and fruit.

Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Great label. Foggy, light orange-tan brew. Aroma is a melange of spices, stewed fruits, a little cabbage, malt, slight phenol, sweat. Sturdy bittering, pretty dry, funky, woody, boozy, a bit wild. Medium body, a loooong alcohop bitter finish. Thanks to PorterPounder - hope he doesn’t get a smartphone.

chinchill (5315) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 On tap; served by the brewer. Pours dark golden with a very fine bone colored head that has great durability and leaves plenty of lacing. Fruity with funk, yeast, baked bread and clove on the nose. Complex and Belgian-style but otherwise not really appealing. Taste partly parallels the nose, but with a good bit of tartness that, unfortunately IMO, is accompanied by a mild bitterness. Too much funky/yeasty flavor. Oddly, the aftertaste is rather nice however. M: excellent feel, with a near medium body and very good medium carbonation. O: Too much wild yeast and funk for my taste, but otherwise appealing.

RABinCO (1707) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from EricTeusink! Pours a beautiful hazy gold with a huge white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, tart, and tangy. Taste is nutty, fruity, lightly tart, no booze burn. Bread, crackers, finishes crisp. Damn good beer.

DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours a clear golden amber color, head on the thin side but looks pretty decent.Smell is mostly bright sweet yeast, lots of banana, some nuts, maybe apple or pear, mild spice and floral notes.Lots of sweet flowers, roses maybe, good amount of spice, not much of the yeasty banana I got from the nose. I like this! Really tastes like it has flowers..Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation that complements the spicy kick well.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours blonde-amber with a fine but decent white head. Nose is spices, fruit, and a touch of booze. Flavor brings out hops much stronger, with malt and booze on the backside, and strong carbonation. Finish is bland. Overall, not bad, but needs a little work.

Travlr (26091) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of biscuit, summer fruit. Taste is peppery straw. Not bad.
