Overall, a decent beer from my local brewery. Nice color and big head. Flavor has a little sweetness and citrus to it. Balance is not bad. There is a slight heavy feel on the palate. Does not take away from the beer, just thought I would mention it, interesting. Good beer, will drink again !!

3.14/5  rDev -14.9%

A: Golden with lots of fine particles of yeast floating within and little carbonation. 5 fingers of off white head that is chunky, off white and leaves a great lacing.

S: Fruity like apricot jam, a light pineapple scent, a little lemony scent, a little spice like red pepper.

T: A plastic taste first hits the tongue, then the apricot and pineapple, then a rusty metallic hit, then some dough and finally a light bitterness.

M: A medium thick syrupy body, medium low carbonation.

O: Great scent, not overwhelming otherwise. Bought in Williamsburg VA, drank in Pensacola, FL July 24th, 2014

Served from a bottle into a pint glass 6/3

Pours bright copper, translucent, with a light ring of white foam. Light malty nose, bready, caramel. Taste is of a light pale, some citrus, and a little lite bitter. Subtle sweetness. Pronounced mildness. Good, yet unremarkable.

North Carolina

4.33/5  rDev +17.3%

Appearance: Pours a rather clear amber with a nice, frothy head; decent stickage and lace

Smell: Grainy, with a hint of caramel and pine

Taste: Opens with some caramel and fruity flavors, much like an ESB, though the hops bring decidedly American tones of pith and pine; the faint sweetness persists into the finish, balancing out the bitterness in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: With a name like Golden Ale, you can never be too sure what to expect, but I sure wouldn't characterize this as an American Blonde; it is somewhere in the territory between an ESB and an APA and it is darn good stylebender

From notes on 02/28/12:
No freshness date; Poured in a pint glass.

A - Half inch off-white creamy head that doesn't last too long; Fairly hazy in appearance and orange/copper in color; Minimal lacing left behind

S - Notes of sweet caramel, toasted breads and biscuits, nuts, and herbal and lemon/citrus hops

T - Brief sweet caramel present before a decent wave of bitterness hits; Along with the bitterness is a good presence of toasted, bready, and biscuity malts with some herbal and citrus hops trying to peek through

M - A bit above moderate carbonation; Medium bodied

O - Overall, this was a solid brew that doesn't overwhelm in any category, but brings a decent flavor profile and is very easy to drink. I'm not sure this would be a frequent beer for me, but I wouldn't mind having it again.
