Consumed November 23rd, 2013 at the brewery.

Beer is a very clear, light golden. A very fine white foamy head.

Aroma is vaguely sweet grain with a touch of honey.

Corny, adjunct flavor. Slightly sweet. No bitterness.

Unremarkable mouthfeel.

This is the stuff breweries make so the BMC crowd have something to drink. Executed exactly as intended, I'm sure, but not something I'll ever drink again. I like flavorful beer.

On tap @ the source. I called this a english dark mild ale because the brewery calls it a Golden Ale and that is not a choice of styles on here

Look: Caramel color body with no head at all. The look of the beer reminds me of apple juice

Smell: Slight malt character with a touch of caramel

Taste: Very weak flavors with some malt toffee and caramel present

Mouthfeel: Thin body with mild carbonation

Overall: Very lack luster in all departments maybe the weakest offering of the night
