3.7/5  rDev -10%

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and mineral-like flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid but not in your face hop presence.

Perfect smelling beer. Very dry crisp flavor. Not much fruit. Biscuit and grassy flavor. Not very bitter, not big enough flavor. Thick white foamy head. Solid lacing. Pretty good beer. This is the type of beer that you want to drink right after a round of golf or mowing your lawn. Great summer thirst-quencher

Look at that big fat three-finger snowball white head, like a real Champagne of beers. Fresh zesty seasoned smell with a light sweet malty spinal column rising from this pretty amber brew. The flavor seems to match the scent as the hop's indescribably unique citron demonstration steals the show. More than subtle, less than front forward, Brooklyn Brewery does it again, for me at least. The only visual obstructing the view through this clear golden cloudless thirst-quenching indulgence are the crystal carbonation bubbles drifting up to support the stable fetching white head. This may be my new favorite beer! I can drink this all day. I better put some of this in the vault before it's all gone. I feel like if I tried to make something that nearly resembles this beautiful brew that I would certainly fail. Brooklyn Brewery, I love this stuff.
