Notes/Commercial Description:
Light golden in color. Dry and crisp with a semi assertive, Fuggles hop bitterness. Hops are prominent but not overwhelming. Overall, a well balanced representation of the golden ale style.

Pours a clear golden color, with a medium bodied well retained head. The smell is sweet and grainy with some summer spice notes. The flavor is lightly sweet thought, with some wheat towards the beginning, going to some hops, and a light sweet finish. For me, a pretty good summer session brew.

Another gift from Sam Knocken who apparently has some source for out-of market beers. Cool by me!

My pour created two-plus fingers of dense, fluffy, eggshell-white head with good retention. Color was a deep coppery-amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was redolent with grassy Noble hops. Mouthfeel was medium, approaching full and the taste was both immediately grassy and then followed by a lager-like honey flavor. Yum! Finish was semi-dry with the hops and malt working well together to create a nice balance.
