From the first canning ever on the 16th of Jan 2013.

A reddish brown with a dense, light brown head that falls off to a disk leaving little lacing, this looks decent. The nose has an initial whiff that is strongly reminiscent of cheerios, but once it's had time to breathe, aromas of cocoa puffs, toast, caramel and earthy hops appear.

The palate opens with a blend of sweet caramel, cocoa, toast and a grainy astringency. Honeyed whole wheat toast, a little bit of sugar, both of which are pleasant, are offset by the grainy bitterness that isn't. The mid-palate is sugary and watery, and the finish is mildly sweet, moderately bitter and a little astringent. Light in body and arguably over-carbonated, this feels decent on the palate. A decent effort.

Served on cask at the Pub at Golden Road on March 20th, 2013.

Slightly murky mahogany colored brew with a creamy, three-finger off-white head. Lots of tiny little bubbles moving ever-so-slowly up through the beer. Lots of sticky, clinging sheeting throughout the drink-down. Beautiful.

A slight peppery aroma. Grapefruit and bready malts mingle with subtlety.

Flavor is smooth and mellow, perhaps too much so. Brown malts and lots of melanoidin. Trace bitterness (tastes charred) on finish.

Slightly chewy and thicker than medium-bodied.

The appearance was the best thing about this beer; perhaps being on cask blunted the flavors too much?

felt like some brown ales today so I grabbed this one of a few, even though I swore I wouldn't drink anymore of their stuff.
nice looking color of brown, actually, a beautiful nutmeg-red color.
foamy head of little subsistence, larger bubbles, and settles quite quickly. smell is total adjunct. corona aroma, corn. some minor nutty aroma and a little bit of malt.
same for the taste. bland with a slight aftertaste and bitterness. some chalkiness on the tongue. an okay brew if you're sitting at their brewery and drinking but certainly nothing special. much, much better browns out there. cool can.
as unbiased as I can be, but it's not a great tasting brew. the color is beautiful, but the taste is bland and gritty.
my only opinion of Golden Road, aside from the three or so brews I've now tried, is that I thought they were a huge bully by threatening the Golden Rod Brewery in Nebraska as trying to spin off from them and confuse Golden Road's consumers. close in spelling, maybe, but a rod is WAY different than a road and if either cannot make their consumers aware of the difference than they are uncreative idiots and, frankly, I think I've seen it in Golden Road's three beers so far. but whatever. I mean, they're in NEBRASKA, for pete's sake! chickensh*t, if you ask me. and is the reason why everyone is coming up with such retarded and long names for their brews these days. take a note from a REAL CLASS ACT like RUSSIAN RIVER and AVERY. they both had the same named brew and they laughed it off and made a COLLABORATION BREW to make Golden Road look like bullies. i'm done.
