Extra cloudy, almost white, to the yellow color. Good head that leaves ring lace.

A very poor smell that comes closest to dishwasher water.

Fortunately, the flavor is much improved. There's some fruity sweetness to the initial taste. Light bitterness in the swallow for balance. Short aftertaste. Full bodied with a high level of carbonation.

A: Pours a very light hazy straw to medium yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger + half finger tall fizzy foamy white head that reduces to a mottled medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts with a touch of grassy/hay-like hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of bready and cereal grain malts with a light touch of an almost honey-like sweetness. That is followed by a very light flavor of grassy/hay and herbal hops which imparts just a hint of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Easy to drink and very sessionable. Enjoyable and definitely one that I would grab regularly for outdoor events when it is warm out there.

Light beer with a smooth finish. Not bad, but if you're looking for big flavor, this isn't it.

Drinking Hoodoo Golden Ale in Bryce Canyon Campground after hiking through the hoodoos - how cool is that! Like drinking bourbon in Bourbon County or Champagne in Champagne.

Aesthetically pleasing brown compass bottle with a pretty painting of what I believe is “the fist,” one of the more popular hoodoos. Gold color. Smells like what I think of when I think of general beer smell: bread dough and golden malt.

Taste is golden malt with an ample black pepper hop in back for balance. Green apple sweetness. Bit of a ‘tweener in the mouthfeel department. Not as crisp as a kolsch but not as smooth as a golden ale. I guess that’s why it’s a kolsch style golden ale.

Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Watchman Campground, Zion National Park, UT.

A- Poured from the bottle with a light golden, slightly hazy body to a chalice. A white crown tops the beer with a foamy, creamy texture and it reaches just over one finger high. Decent retention. A thick ring and some pillows remain and lace sticks behind in sheets.

S- Mild aromatics with notes of yeast bread, pale fruits, slight citrus and some herbal spicy notes. Not much in the way of hops or malts.

T- Some hops seem to open up to provide another angle to the flavor. They are herbal and spicy probably of the Noble varieties. Notes of light cracked Pils grain, cereal, lemon zest, light fruits, wheat crust and bread form the base.

MF- Silky and foamy light end body. Carbonation is at a medium level and each sip feels crisp and smooth. Lightly bitter in the finish.

Drinks mild but provides plenty of flavor with the yeast doing much of the work while spicy hops smooth things out. Has a nice crusty bread feel I enjoy with the other flavors presented. Great in the Utah heat.
