This is one of those beers I've heard about for a very long time but had never had the opportunity to try. Well I got my chance recently...

The beer, like its name, pours out a beautiful golden color, rather appealing really. The smell and taste were surprising in a way, there was a distant hint of citrus I am certain I tasted. The single reason why I rated it better than average. Mouthfeel was average at best and it actually felt a bit watery sloshing around. Overall, it was better than what I expected and have enjoyed a few more than one since.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

How did I miss this stuff during my trip to Windsor those years ago...? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear pale gold topped by a relatively short-lived finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, very light lemon peel, and mineral water. The taste brings in more of the same, with both the wheat and the lemon gaining that usual macro funk (one day I'll find a better way to describe that quality (or lack thereof)). The body is pretty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, a meek, bland, sad little beer. 'Nuff said, really.

A totally underrated beer. This pours clear, golden, beautiful. a nice head, not too much, not too little. the smell is as beer should be: hops, malt .. yum. It can get a little skunky, which to be honest, I really don't mind if it is not excessive. The alc kick is decent, and actually a little surprising as the flavor of alc doesn't come through at all. It is very, very drinkable, maybe a little too much so. I can down three of these in a half hour and not realise it.. until the buzz hits.. which is nice and smooth, not heavy and sickening. All around, a true favorite.
