Sampled at Fremont Diner in Sonoma. Pours a bright golden color with frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light hay, honey, sweet pale malts. Flavor follows suit with slightly sweet and grassy hops. Light bitter, super refreshing brew. Mouthfeel is on the very light side, medium plus carbonation. This came off as a combination between a light pale ale and a nice crisp golden ale and it came together rather nicely. I would have this again for sure, especially on a hot summer day.

I had this on tap at Belly in Santa Rosa.

Very deep golden/amber, it had a medium-small, lasting off-white head slowly shrinking to foamy ring, wisps, a tiny bit of lace.

Aroma was a mild but fairly full-bodied golden ale, toasted grain and hint of dough with hints of grass and fruit skins.

Taste is fairly similar, a mild and straightforward but full-bodied and well-rounded golden ale, with toasty bread dough, hints of grass and fruit skins, gentle but firm and solid spicy bitterness to balance light but similarly firm sweetness. It's a very good, well-rounded golden ale with good character to hold up well on its own or with food.

Had this at Zeitgeist, mid-April - yeah, it was marked as a local beer, so that's why I tried it. I was also curious because I know "golden naked oats" from homebrewing, though I'm only familiar with the ingredient from other homebrewers' accounts of having used it.

The pour was to fill, so it only had around 1/4" white head atop the bright, clear amber liquid...head died quick, left minimal collar and only a lil lace around the top of the glass....kinda looked like a toasted lager, if that makes sense...

Toasted cereal in the smell and toasted caramel out the ass in the flavor, though it drank really clean and fairly smooth and had just enough of a light hop flavor to balance the "nakedness" of its namesake specialty ingredient. Considering the relative intensity (and I suppose I wasn't expecting it) of the specialty additions, the body seemed lighter and it drank a good bit drier than it tasted. So I guess score one for 101. Not a bad beer. Something nice to start the session off with.
