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.

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.

I have had this beer in a bottle, on tap and have also picked up a few growlers from the brewery. It's a very enjoyable beer. It's light but not too light.

A: Golden with white, creamy head
T: Very smooth. Easy to drink.
M: Silky, smooth finish.

I really like this beer. Perfect beer to enjoy outside.

Sampled at the Schlafly Repeal festival, this Golden poured, well golden (bit on the hazy side), with a nice white head that left bits of lace in my lil' sample glass - which I tried 3 times!

Light malt in the aroma with a hint of roasted nut. The nut came through in the quaff nicely, mixing well with a woody resin and a touch of caramel. Well balanced with the hops in the finish, I was pleased with this brew and would look for it again, in the bottle for some summer STL quaffing
