12 oz can. Pours clear orange gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet vegetal malts with a little honey.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with a little bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, like a slightly better Bud.

Pours a light clear amber with a large white head. Smells slightly crisp and crackery. A bit of citrusy hops. Not a lot to the aroma. Taste is similar. Crackery and bready, with a hint of yeast and a crisp finish. I could almost mistake this for a pilsner. Not a bad beer, and certainly refreshing, but lacks complexity.

A big thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bready malts. Taste is also bready malts, very light hops, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a solid but unspectacular beer.

Boulder Buffalo Gold has a very thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, brilliant gold appearance, with tiny white particles throughout and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of cream, mild and sweet bread crust, cream cheese cake icing, and hop oil. Taste is of all of those elements wit low, yet noticeable hop bitterness to round it out. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Boulder Buffalo Gold finishes crisp, highly drinkable, and exceptionally refreshing.

I haven't had this in a long time, and I guess there's a reason for that. It's fine, just your basic blonde ale, but nothing too interesting. Might pick it up again.
