Surprisingly dark amber color -- like a dark Oktoberfest -- with a three-fingered, tan-tinted head. Decent lacing.

Sweet, bready aroma up front, a bit of dusty yeast, with a hint of paint thinner behind.

Plain Jane taste of watery, wet bread up front. A kiss of malt sweetness, smokiness and nuttiness mix together on the back end. Very watery feel. A metallic, paint thinner impression appears in the aftertaste.

Easy drinking enough, but I'm not feeling this one. Not at all what I expected from a Golden Ale. No canned on date.

16 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden amber color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy/foamy two-finger plus white head, which also leaves some really nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, slight citrus/yeast, grainy. The taste is pretty nice, malty, kinda hoppy, slight yeast/citrus, grainy. Medium body. Overall, a nice thirst quencher.

A session beer that is refreshing and has a very nice flavor. Would be a good choice for a pool party beer.

Had this on 2017-03-28 in Louisville, KY from a 16 oz can fresh at the brewery.

Pleasant but insipid.

Taste: tangy bready yeast notes that mellow at the finish. same of the nose. Amber in color, clear, white head of average lace. Medium body. a bit grainy chewy, but would pair well with Pizza or appetizers. 13 IBUs

Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma is malt and bread. The taste is mostly malt with some citrus.

Can: Poured a clear deep orangey color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and not much lacing. Aroma of residual sugar with some fruity ester and light malt notes is quite intriguing. Taste is a mix of sweet malt notes with some fruity ester and carbonation that is too intense and takes away some of the flavours which are not very bold to start with. Body is light with aggressive carbonation. Not very interesting with weak flavours and over the top carbonation.

This is a beer that my wife picked up for me recently during a business trip. I had requested that she pick up some beer from Kentucky and this is one of three that she came home with. This beer features a white, slightly orangish tinted, head that is a thick froth in appearance and dissipates slowly to a rocky layer that is retained. The beer itself is clear and orangish amber in color with high carbonation readily visible. 3.75/5 The aroma is quite sweet with notes of light caramel, clover honey, fresh white bread, apricots, and peaches. Other notes that finish out the complexity of the aroma are butter, earthy yeast, peat moss, and clover honey. There is a slight herbal hop profile that comes through as well. 3.75/5 The flavor is a bit sweet up front with light caramel and fresh white bread but then quickly changes to an earthy flavor of belgian yeast, peat moss, and clover honey. A very light note of apricots comes through but it is fleeting. There is an herbal hop note that comes through but the earthiness of the yeast and sweetness of the malt shines through the most. There is a moderate metallic aftertaste that is a bit off-putting but the flavor up until that point is good. 3.5/5 There is a quite significant carbonation burn on the front end that quickly dissipates before leading into a bit of drying that lingers slightly (along with the metallic aftertaste). Light to medium bodied in stature. 4/5 This beer is quite interesting and would garner a much higher score if not for the metallic aftertaste. Nice and light which makes it easily sessionable. 3.5/5
