look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden yellow. White, 2 finger head. Average retention. The resulting lace hangs well and is somewhat clingy.

Smell - Grainy notes. Somewhat grassy.

Taste - Grainy malts and grassy hops. That's it, from start to finish. Fairly boring.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Carbonation is on par for the style.

Overall - There's nothing bad about this beer, but there's nothing great, either. Simple and straight forward. Drinks like a German pilsner.

pours out a slightly hazed golden colour with a minimal mead and subsequent minimal lace. sweet toffeeish aroma...a bit buttery showing off some grainy and sugary notes. upon tasting...more characteristics of the golden ale style present themselves...sweet maltiness, cloying at times; a strange spicy boozy note i wasn't expecting...and more buttery diacetyl that really isn't all that welcome. minimal hopping...just enough to notice...and no real bitterness. bigger body than most other golden ales with a slick and sugary mouthfeel. drinkability is ok...i'm drinking on a very warm day in spring after work and it's having a hard time hitting the spot.

overall i would say that since this is a delicate style, with subtle nuances being most important...this is a heavy handed stab at the style and misses the point. oh well...i didn't have to pay for this.
