Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: emerge077 on 02-04-2010

Crisp golden ale with a delicate hop finish. This is our lightest ale and it is brewed with a bit wheat malt for body and Munich and Aromatic malts for and undertone of honey-like sweetness. Lightly dry-hopped with Cascade hops for that classic American golden ale aroma.

Had on tap at Jellyfish. L: Pours brilliant gold crowned by a 1” white foam collar. S: Very perfumey and earthy T: Light fruit and light malt with the balance towards the fruit. Light sweetness balanced by moderate hop bitterness. F: Medium to medium light body, above average carbonation. O: A flavorful and easy to drink light beer. (336 characters)

The Cross of Gold was good...but I agree with others....this is more of a blonde ale than an English IPA...the Beer poured a hazy yellow with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent was sligth bitter hops with a subtle waith of citrus. The taste was a very good balanced beer that did not overwhelm....sligth citrus flare helped to give the beer character. The mouthfeel was medium to light in body with decent carbonation. Overall it was ok...probably would not go seekign it out....but glad I tried it. (510 characters)

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a nice clear golden color with a small white head and some lacing.
Awesome citrus hop aroma, with honey and grainy pale malt. Smells phenomenal, way better than I expected from the description.

Flavor is great for the style. A little grainy with sweet pale malt and honey as well as bright citrusy hops. Reminds me of a golden ale version of FFF Alpha King even, which is about as high a compliment as I can give a beer like this.

Nice palate, fairly sweet and medium-light with a mild sweetness.

Overall, wow, what a great golden ale. This is typically a boring style in my opinion, but this one was very drinkable and enjoyable. (663 characters)
