Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is strong of some lighter fruits of peach and pear along with some smells of caramel. Other bready aromas and a hint of grass and floral hops are there as well creating a rather pleasant smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice smooth and sweet bready taste with the sweet being mostly of lighter fruits of apricot, peach and pear. There is a little bit of a brown sugar upfront as well, with this flavor getting slightly stronger as the taste advances. Some orange and grapefruit hop then later develop further along in the taste, and in the end, with just a hint of a floral flavor, one is left with a rather clean and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the style a little higher carbonation may have been slightly more appropriate, but even said, the thicker body did do a nice job accentuating the mix of fruit and lighter hop , so overall the feel was pretty decent.

Overall – A tasty brew with a great level of flavor and an easy drinking feel. A good session like style brew.

Malt and hops, hops drying out the finish. Clear golden body, with airy head, aroma of bread, crackers, mostly malt characteristics. Taste is malt again, hops kick in on the back plane, drying it out at the finish. Very crisp and clean beer, but not as smooth and velvety as some of the British or Belgian varieties.

A little hoppy for my taste but good for a summer afternoon. I've not much experience with "golden ales" I guess, but I was expecting something a little more drinkable. It has a citrusy finish, similar to a pale ale. I give it points for being organic and it seems relatively complex for a lighter beer.
