Consumed on tap at the Surly Goat in Hollywood:

A golden amber with frothy white head that leaves rings on the glass like a cappuccino might if it were a beer. Citrusy, earthy hops dominate the aroma with a hint of golden baked biscuit. Smoky rye malt takes over the palate leaving you with the hops and smoky aftertaste lingering. The two aftertastes don't battle it out, instead they work together. Both are not overpowering and compliment one another in a surprising way. This felt just like a pale ale should, very balanced.

I went into this not knowing it was smoked, and I'm not sure I would have ordered it if I knew since I don't like most smoked beers. Golden Road really delivered, though. I really enjoyed the smoky flavor, which wasn't taking the whole spotlight. The hops shined in the nose and both were delicate enough to be complimentary. During my SoCal road trip, this is the first beer of which I'd like a growler.

Serving type: on-tap
