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 !!

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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
