Bought some can's straight from the brewery. It poured a golden red brown with a nice head that left some nice lacing.

Smells of a fresh cut hay field mixed with toffee.

Taste is interesting, I get a little fresh cut hay field with a majority of it being toffee and sweetness. I do get a lot of the hops in there which add a lot of piney sweetness.

The mouthfeel is pretty good, it is a higher percentage so I would expect it to be a sipper and the syrupy feeling helps with that.

Overall, I'm just not as impressed. There are some flaws I can taste right away. It's just that feeling you get when you know something is just not right. I feel bad, because it's not a bad beer, it's just trying to stand out in a market that has soo many great ones. (754 characters)

Canned on 7/30/12.

Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a 1 inch foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and lots of earthy, herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with some slight onion flavors and an alcohol presence. There is a fairly mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is really earthy and herbal in the aromas and flavors. (584 characters)

Amber color with an off-white head. Nose is somewhat grassy, but good citrus peel, pine, and floral notes. A little bit woody, actually. Some sweet caramel and toffee, which I’ve come to expect from Golden Road. The flavor is lightly bitter with toast, caramel, and toffee malt flavors. Some citrus fruit and peel, light pine, and grassy hop flavors. Not a big fan. (367 characters)
