Poured from a 22oz bottle into a 20oz imperial pint.

A: Pours a chill hazed, well, gold color with 1 creamy finger of short lived, bright white foam on top. A few ropes of lace were left behind on the glass.

S: Light citrus hops and lightly toasted malt mix well with a subtly spicy yeast aroma. Very simple and clean.

T: As above with slightly more emphasis on the toastiness of the malt.

M: Relatively smooth and refreshing on the palate with just a touch of hop astringency on the back of the tongue to keep things interesting.

O: Very solid session ale. I could easily see this being the "money maker" that affords them the ability to continue to explore their more experimental leanings.

22 oz bottle per into glass.

Touted as an English style summer ale, but I think it is more similar to American summer ales. Mild citrus aroma with a gentle hops aftertaste. Golden yellow to straw color thin head with little lacing. The beer is rather mild as expected for a simmer beer. Good and easy drinking with good flavor.

Cross of Gold pours with a thick white head that diminishes quickly with frothy lacing on the glass and a thin layer of foam as it warms. Pale golden in color, the nose has spicy hops and some lemon mixed in with sweet malts. Taste is sweet up front with citrus hops and a light herbal spice and sweetness in the back. A very good session beer as well as a great after mowing beer for summer. Not the best beer you ever had but a solid offering for the style.
