Beer added by: Vancer on 04-19-2009

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.

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.

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.

Pours to a frothy white head and deep gold color. Aroma is grassy hops and sweet malt. Favor presents with a grainy start, biscuity, vinous middle and clean, mildly hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is light and co2is generous. had this beer on tap the night before this review and have to say on tap is definitely better. Overall, a decent Kolsch and a good crossover brew for the mid-south.

Pours a clear, rich golden with a creamy off-white head. A light grain aroma. Taste is sweet and light caramel up front, followed by a rich cream flavor, next up is some doughy bread, and a zesty light bitter finish. Mouthfeel is good. Over a nice kolsch, I would get this again.

Had this beer at a concert in Memphis purchased from the Brewers stand , assume that it was pretty fresh. To me this is a good night out , day at the lake, mowing the lawn kind of beer. Far better than the mass produced St Louis Swill , nothing to sit around and sip on at the house or share for a special moment , but a good summer time hot weather beer to enjoy.

Had on tap in Memphis.

Beer was a medium gold and slightly hazy with not much in the way of a head.

Faint grainy aroma with some wet grass and hay.

The flavor had plenty of bread and hay much like a Euro lager. There is definitely a soft wheat characteristic which does help drinkability. Light bitterness.

Overall, a pretty forgetable beer. Drinkability is extremely high but flavors are somewhat lacking. Not offensive but not impressive either.
