Wild Oats Series No. 53 - Golden VoxWild Oats Series No. 53 - Golden Vox
Notes: Golden Vox is a rye pale lagered ale that was conceived and brewed collaboratively between Beau’s and Canadian hip hop artist k-os. The recipe is a blend of rye and barley malts, with just a kiss of whiskey, courtesy of a light aging on rye-soaked oak spirals.

Bottle from the lcbo for around $5. Good but pretty boring.

600 ml bottle served cool into a Mill Street pint glass. Purchased from the LCBO for under $6 CDN. Bottled on April 20, 2016.

Appearance - clean and clear with plenty of effervescent carbonation. Small half finger of head is poured and lingers for a good duration.

Smell - plenty of grain, with sweet biscuity malt. Some mild spiciness in the background probably from the rye. Middling sweetness with maybe banana and caramel as well.

Taste - clean and mildly sweet, low level of bitterness with some trace of banana and caramel. Some super subtle citrusy notes too.

Mouthfeel - smooth, good carbonation and mildly dry finish. Light body and easy to drink. Great feel.

Overall - Golden Vox probably isn't going to blow you away, but is remarkably flavourful and session able, the 6.0% ABV is hidden very well and this beer just feels like an excellent summer beer. While the price tag is a little steep, it certainly warrants at least a sample as one of the best new beers from Beau's.

Purchased at the LCBO for just over $5.00 for a 600ml bottle. Served at 7deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1/2" high white head that films out within a minute or two. Medium gold colour and filtered clear

S- Nice malt. Some hops

T- Sweet. Has some honey in it or something. Nice malt base. Don't get much rye at all. Has a mellow nature. Not obtrusive.

M- Creamy going down. Very nice

O- Good slow sipper. Not a great beer and will not buy again but it is a nice neutral dinner beer that will fit will a lot of ingredients out there.

Food Pairing

As mentioned this one can go with a lot of dishes. Try....... butter chicken. The savory butter and spicy sauce just go well with this brew

Enjoy

Pours a crystal clear straw coloured body with around 2" of frothy white head. The aroma has some citrus and piney hoppiness, with a well-structured malt backbone similar to a pilsner malt in scent. The taste is noticeably malty with a clean kick of spice from what I would presume is the rye, leading into a bitter finish with some grassy hop tones. It's fairly smooth, though the bitterness does come to overpower the whole blend just a touch. Overall, though, this is something I could easily see myself drinking again, all thumbs up for my first run in with Beau's.
