Golden Road Brewing Grand Opening Party
Golden Road Brewing
Los Angeles, CA

Hazy, golden orange and and yellow with a thick white head, though, surprisingly, it doesn't leave much lace at all on the glass.

Pleasant and somewhat simple aroma: light banana and clove with a bit of wheat. Not as strong or powerful as my favorite within this style.

Light banana, clove, a hint of black pepper, and a little pear combine for a pleasing, accessible flavor. The flavors aren't quite as big and bold as I would prefer, even within style, but I think this is a very accessible and drinkable hefeweizen.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I think Golden Road accomplished exactly what they sought to do with this beer: an accessible, incredibly drinkable, relatively low-alcohol, flavorful hefeweizen.

It was one of my buddy's favorites.

Really drinkable light beer. The smell is banana and cloves and as well as the taste. For some reason it reminded of sweet corn.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp with good carbonation.

Overall nice experience. Would have it again.
