4.3/5 rDev +21.8%
another winner from grand ridge!!
bottle conditioned. no best before date.
thin lace head. cloudy amber/brown color
sweet bready aroma. call me crazy, but the only thing i can think of to compare this to would be a scaled down version of arrogant bastard. but hey, i like it.
good mix of maltiness and hop flavor with a notch or two more bitterness than their moonlight.
a real easy drinker that keeps you wanting more.

3.03/5 rDev -14.2%
Deep copper red colour with a light head that eases away quickly.
Sweet floral and malt aromas with a hint of maple syrup and honey.
Bitter, dry and long taste. Again more of the floral hops, a touch estery and some strong malty presence, but nothing too over-powering.
Tasty beer that is very enjoyable.

3.25/5 rDev -7.9%
Appearance: dusky, clottled orange/ dull bown (not exactly gold!), with a small head.
Aroma: unique and yeasty, ery inviting, lively mixture, though slightly sour.
Taste; oddly metallic and tinny, hops are lacking any presence, an ephemeral fruitiness emerges, but does not evolve into much beyond the initial gestation.
This one's a puzzle, for it's not gold in color, nor particularly bright in flavor.
Mouthfeel is nice and full, malt is sufficient, and the fruity flavor eventually prevails, primarily orange. Doesn't get up and do anything, though.
An interesting ale, that I'll grant, but I never felt much towards it. Huh.
Still, thanks go out to the Rastaman for providing! Jah! Ra'Stafari!
