Really dry and bretty, with a bitter finish. This isn't really a style I dig.

Large, dense head--at least four fingers thick. It settles slowly and in a lumpy fashion. Surprisingly little lace, only a couple of spots. The liquid is a cloudy straw color.

The smell is a mild combination of pale malts, bittering hop and brewer's yeast. Rather nondescript.

The flavor starts off soft with the palest of malt tastes. In the swallow, the bite of the hop bitters kicks in. The combination works as a refreshing easy-to-drink golden ale. I would like to see the body be a little more full although the low carbonation does help.

Appearance - big 2-3" foamy head with a hazy blonde color

Smell - has a strong mix of hops and Belgian yeast coming through.

Taste - I think the mix of the hops and Belgian yeast almost cancel eab other out in the taste leaving the taste a bit neutral.

Mouthfeel - the hop presence comes through in the mouthfeel. It lingers for quite a while.

Overall - this is a decent extra hoppy golden ale. I would almost classify it as more of sour.
