Pours dark straw with a mild haze. One finger head that leaves an initial ring of lace and then spots thereafter.

The smell starts with an old beer line, stale nose. I then pick up light berry and spicy (like oregano) hop. Overall the aroma is okay but the initial whiff is definitely off.

This starts with an exclusively pale malt flavor. The hop is more biting than the smell suggests. The bitterness lingers almost like a hot sauce. After the initial sip, it's hard to detect the pale malt flavor. The body is predictable for the style. The carbonation leans ever so slightly to the bubbly side.

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with greatclarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Herbal, grassy, lemon, lime, chewy, and pale malts.

Taste: Nice hop flavor with balancing malt backbone. Easy to drink and traditional to the style. Tasty, balanced, and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, light chewy notes, and light bitterness.

Overall: Pretty popular beer tonight. Now I see why. Light and tasty. Will look forward to more of this in the future.

Had on tap at Jellyfish. L: Pours brilliant gold crowned by a 1” white foam collar. S: Very perfumey and earthy T: Light fruit and light malt with the balance towards the fruit. Light sweetness balanced by moderate hop bitterness. F: Medium to medium light body, above average carbonation. O: A flavorful and easy to drink light beer.

Best golden ale I've had yet.
Light on the hop aroma but extremely crisp.
Perfect for the summer & the price is right!
Will definitely be enjoying this again!
