Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with the finest two-row malted barley and German variety hops, Ghost River Golden’s mellow, refreshing character is accentuated by Memphis’ soft water. Munich and caramel malts give this beer enough sweetness to balance the crisp, dry finish.

A - Pours a crystal clear light golden color with tons of bubbles and a 1 finger frothy white head with good retention. Beautiful beer.

S - Very light smells. Mainly malts. Sweet smelling upfront and perhaps a lttile yeasty. Also detected a slight grassy odor.

T - Sweet, grainy malts. A very earthy beer. I really enjoyed it. Very, very slight bitter hops on the finish

M - Extremely light beer. Feels silky and smooth. Quite enjoyable

O - Great Kolsch. I found it to be very easy drinking but still quite flavorful. Definately a beer one could sit down and have multiples of.

The beer looks exactly as it's supposed to. It's not a Kolsch. It's a golden ale. If you didn't figure that out, you were already in for the wrong ride. This beer really opens up and its floral, has a great softness due to the water they use, and it has a slight sweetness and bitterness thats perfectly balanced. Overall a great beer for session or whatever. Perfect for all seasons.

Serving type: on-tap
