Clean, crisp, simple but easy drinking beer with flavor.

It pours a clear golden color with rich thick head, great retention, and beautiful lacing.

The aroma is of light toast, clean malt, light, leafy hop hint with some nutty notes.

Clean malt, touch of caramel, toasted bread, and light hops.

Light, crisp, refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall, nothing exciting, but an easy drinking and balanced beer.

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Not too bad for a lighter beer. Poured a clear, golden yellow, moderately carbonated, with a small, delicate, white head that was gone after not too long. Leafy hop aroma, accompanied by pale malts. More of the same in the taste, crisply hopped, with a base of malts and grains. Not too flavorful, but surely easily drinkable for the casual imbiber.

On a recent trip to Fort Collins with friends, we had the opportunity to try this one on tap at the brewery. The first adjective that comes to mind here is boring. Poured a nice golden color with a bit of white head. Aromas of biscuit and light hops. On the palate, this one was light bodied, with flavors of biscuit and light hops.

A- Golden honey/orange. Great lacing, fine bubbly head.

S- Good balance, grainy but crisp. A tad weak.

T- Starts toasty and malt dominate, fades to balance and finishes on crisp hops. Bitter finish, good movement of flavors.

M- Light, crisp, amazing.

D- VERY good. Light and crsp, again, come to mind.

Enjoyed Saturday the 15th at the brewpub.

Sunrise Golden Ale poured a light gold colour, smal head of foam with some decent lacing.

The smell had a nice balance of light hop bitterness and a light but balancing malty sweetness. Nice nose that is refreshing to have in a lighter beer.

The taste didn't disappoint. Light but flavourful tastes of malty sweetness and a crisp hop counterpart. Yummy. I'll have to check with Equinox to find out what the abv is. I would guess not over 5%abv.

Lightish body with medium carbonation. Good mouthfeel.

Drinkability? Refreshing to the nth degree. Crisp flavours had me sipping pretty much non stop. A great way to start the exploration of new beers from a new brewpub!
