Appearance - Nice gold color of this beer makes the anticipation very high.

Smell - Smelled like a Ale should, little citrus note

Taste - very well balanced beer, I think this is more of a lager style then and English pale.

Mouthfeel - Clean and crisp.

Overall - It is a great beer to have a while waiting for dinner a pallet cleanser.

I had the Cross of Gold on tap at Sweet Baby Rays on Clark Street. Served in a standard pint, the beer is gold with a fluffy white head and awesome lacing. It has an aroma of milled grains, crackers and a bit of citrus.

Taste closely tracks the smell. It is slightly hoppier than I thought it would be but it works as a very approachable cross-over beer.

The mouth is yeoman like. The whole beer ties together nicely. This is a good beer to pair with food.

One of those beers that I see on tap everywhere and or some reason have not had. That is my mistake, don’t make the same one!
