look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass from the bottle. Bottle Caption "American Gold Ale with Floral Hop Aroma well rounded, fruity, and complex."

Appearance - Slightly darker golden amber with a decent head and good lacing.

Smell - I seem to catch more of a malty/earthy aroma with the beer rather than the Floral Hop aromas that the label implies.

Taste - Balanced. At first the malt comes through fairly strongly, maybe very slightly watery. Very light on the aftertaste, but as expected as the majority of the hops were intended for aroma.

Mouthfeel - A very drinkable beer, not heavy but also not extremely light. Finishes clean.

Overall - 3.5. A good average beer but with no qualities that really stand out. I am a very big fan of all of Heavy Seas brews that I have had, so this was actually somewhat of a disappointment of their line to me.

I got as part of a botmc, pours a fizzy yellow with a moderate white head. The aroma is bready, musty. The hops are bready, grassy, it has a lingering finish. The body is medium, light, very quaffable. Not a whole lot going on, would be good on a hot day or maybe as a transition beer.

I poured this very average beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice golden color but poured a weak head that was gone very fast. The beer has a yeasty bready smell and the taste was just plain beer. Not good enough for another try. I will not buy again.

Bottle BB May 2013, poured into a shaker. Acquired as part of a beer of the month gift.

A: Solid golden color, two finger white head recedes to a skim, a little bit of lacing left. looks like an AAL. maybe a shade darker.

S: Slightly floral, bready pale malt, kinda grassy, a bit of a generic grainy smell.

T: Floral hops mix with some ever so slight citrus. Bready, grainy, pale malt. Its a bit sweet and minimal bitterness. Mild, easy drinking blond.

M: Feels lighter bodied and the carbonation is medium, but not spritsy. Smooth and easy drinking.

O: Nothing fancy here at all, just an easy drinking sessioner. Goes down without any problems. Might purchase again if I need a no frills/pool/shoot the shit kind of brew. Would go good with a pizza, or some ball park dogs. Definitely a good intro for BMC drinkers.
