This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a ruddy golden peach color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated immediately with a messy lace. The aroma had some sweet peach, sly grassy hops for bittering, nice use of the malts for a sweet balance but not distracting. The flavor leans sweet with a crisp grassy bitter edge of the hops. Dry semi-sweet to bitter aftertaste. Malty sweet smooth finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a very nice sesssionability about it. Mild carbonation. Smooth. Overall, nice all around American pale ale that I would have again.

Fiddlehead Brewing Company - Golden Grillz, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.

Look - Pours a hazy golden almost pale with a small foamy head that retains a bit. Good lacing.

Smell - Fruity grapefruit/lemon hops with bready crackery malt. Mouth watering.

Taste - Cracker malt yumminess with light fruity hops over it just right. Gets better every sip as is lines the taste buds.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is crackers and a slight hop linger. Great drinkability. Slight boozy throat warming which was a bit surprising for the abv but did not take away from the experience.

Overall - Great brew, this style isn't typically my bag but Matty never fails to change my mind! Good change of pace and perfect Summer brew.

This one pours such a hazy yellow that it's almost fully transparent. The smell is citrus-heavy with hop undertones. The taste is a little different than the smell - it's like a lighter IPA combined with a lager. Overall, it's very tasty.
