Very different from any beer I had, very soft, cinnamon is very present in the smell and taste, very refreshing and with a good drinkability. As expected from one of the best breweries of Brazil.

I found the cinnamon in the initial aroma and aftertaste, but in a subtle way; particularly, do not think it compromised the beer. Is stamped as Ale, but I thought it was a weaker Weiss, whatever. Curiosity killed, but this price does not stare back.

A: Pours a golden orange with a thick white head with good retention.

S: Fruit and cinnamon bouquet, very smooth but pretty good.

T: This beer is very refreshing, with a soft fruity taste with a great touch of cinnamon, no bitterness at all, some malts can be found.

M: Watery in the begginning with a very clear cinnamon aftertaste. The high carbonation contributes to the spicy feel too.

O: A very unique beer, its use of cinnamon makes this beer remarkable, but at same time, its watery body, and absence of bitter hops, make this beer very plain. Great as a session beer with good drinkability, but to soft for anyone who want some hops and bitterness.

Amber golden color with a thick head with descent retention and leaving some laces.
Predominant fruity aroma with strong notes of cinnamon rolls.
Spicy flavor with hints of honey, cinnamon rolls are also all over it. Notes of citrus, apple juice, ginger and berries. Mildly dry aftertaste.
A bit watery body, with a strong carbonation to hide it. Very crisp and refreshing.
A bit too light, but if you ignore this, it is quite interesting given the cinnamon tweak. Alcohol could be increased in 1 or 2 percent, more malt and adequate hoping also wouldn’t harm, this would help to counterbalance the cinnamon. Nevertheless, I found it very drinkable and the bottle went down quickly.

From a 600 mL bottle, thanks Jon,

A: Pours gold with blissful full white head, leaving clumps of spotty lace.

S: Sugar cane and cinnamon apples.

T: Golden cinnamon apples, sugary, but not over the top. Lots of hefty bready malt to back it all up. Good balance.

M: Crisp, bright and clean, light-bodied, refreshing.

O: A beer that would be perfectly suited to summer. Very solid and a unique take on a style that is all too pedestrian a lot of the time.

I've overlooked Baden Baden Golden for a couple of reasons; it's a golden ale and so what, and their portfolio offers so many interesting styles of beer. But after digging a little deeper, I found that the Golden receives a few special ingredients to the recipe, so this many not be the standard and plain golden ale. Just another beer to come by way of Sergio, to which I reply "muito obrigado!" On to the beer:

Like the name , this beer is a light golden color with good lace ringing around the glass. I knew there would be cinnamon and "green fruits" as the label suggested, but the marriage is a winner, at least in the nose. Cinnamon and crisp green apples appear right before your nose. The cinnamon appears to give the apple notes a spiced apple aspect. It smells more like the preparation of an apple pie than a beer.

In the taste, the additional spiced apples and cinnamon take on a perfumy characteristic. They're dominant flavors, yet they're not. There's still a solid backbone of a slighly sweet and bready pale malt. It's light bodied and very crisp with a rather clean finish, which helps make this already refreshing beer more impressive.

Baden Baden Golden is a beauty on its own. It may not appear to be as sexy as their stout of red ale, but definately give it a chance and it will reward you.
