Golden yellow color. Nose smelled strongly of adjunct and a sharp light malt.

Taste was a bit sweet-sour, clean, crisp and light. Toasted malt taste was vague. Hop bitterness was low end but about right for this beer. Tasted a lot like an American macro with a little more umph. A fine beer if you like a lighter style and just want to kill a few without really thinking to much about it.

On the pour a clear gold with the head modest in size and a frothy white color after its evaporation, the resultant lace a thin curtain to drape the glass. Nose is malt laden and sweet, fresh and crisp with the start sweet with a fair grain profile, the top light. Finish adequately hopped and minimally acidic with a dry aftertaste, just a tad to sweet overall for me.

I have got to say that I wasn't that impressed with this beer. Looked OK, and a nice malty aroma was a good start, but I did not like the taste. Sort of thin and sour tasting. Maybe this was a bad bottle, but it did taste fresh and was just shipped to me. Didn't really have much of a pleasent body either.

Crystal clear dark golden, topped by a thick large bubbled head that settles readily. Loose lace is left. Soft bready malt and lightly toasted grain along with a mildly herbal and floral noble hop nose. A snap of moderate hop bitterness quickly yields to mellow grainy sweetness and a persistent toasted malt note. An herbal hop flavor then emerges and provides contrast. Lightly bodied, but just full enough in mouthfeel to prevent overall weakness. Finishes clean, w/ just a hint of light caramel malt. Ybor Gold is a no frills brew with more than sufficient overall character to facilitate excellent drinkability. Very quaffable.

great session beer, light and crisp, like a lager should be. poured with minimal head which disappeared almost immediately. beautiful golden, clear color. unusual hoppy, but not unwelcome. malt character is there in the beginning but fads fast to leave nothing but hop after. reading about it, says there is a "malt spiciness" but i dont see it, the thing i get from it is the hoppiness flavor and no bite.

Golden color, not much head and some bitterness. After taste is slightly hoppy, the malt and hops are a much better mix as it warms up. Hops are stronger when temperature is 40 or so.

Presentation: 12 oz long neck with pic of the brewery on the label, no freshness date.

Appearance: Deep semi tawny gold with a healthy bone white lace.

Smell: Hoppy and crisp with lots of fresh grain and herbal hop.

Taste: Medium bodied, lots of slick hop oil and a malty smooth texture aim for drinkability. Hops rise above a little with a sharp bitterness and the sweet grain rides its tide. As the grain comes around it leaves a trail of vaguely nutty sweetness.

Notes: Good quaffing micro brewed lager. A little over the top for the hop flavour ... hell that is what micros are for.
