Somehow I missed this one for seven years... and it was in my backyard.
I've been getting shy of Revolution because their use of hops, while not dominant, was becoming too predictable.
So, I catch this can. And this pale is done right. Pleasant, refreshing, just sweet enough and, at least for me, not too hoppy.
Cross of Gold hit the spot on a warm October late afternoon.
It is nice to think that a can of beer can put the world back in balance.

Great crisp light golden ale with a great sweet finish. Also makes a great beer to use for beer can chicken.

12oz can poured into a pint glass boasts a bright golden bubbly body and floats little more than a cap of white head that disapates to nothing and leaves no lacing.

Aroma and flavors include a cracker malt, floral hops, and a little honey sweetness for good measure.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean.
Overall, put it in your golf bag and enjoy.
