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.

22oz bottle, date stamped FEB1214 (bottled on)
L - golden body, nice clarity, thinner white head leaves some lacing as it fades
S - mild aroma of biscuity grain, herbal, earthy hop
T - earthy, spicy, sweet but bitter, biscuit, grain, toasty, fresh grassy hop, easy drinking and refreshing
F - thin-to-medium body, nice carbonation, finishes spicy and semi-bitter and fairly crisp with some of the fresh grassy hop lingering a bit
O - I really like this for what it is. Nice complexity and flavor, fairly good price. I'd buy it again if the timing was right and had a craving for it.
