I believe this is un-retired

Pours an effervescent & no quite clear gold/straw color with minimal beige colored head. :Looks almost like a Mead, devoid of head retention & lacing

S: Pears & a little sourness, some booze, Brandy-like

T: Follows the nose, honey crisp apples as well, with oaky dryness. A little honey & sourmash as this warms, dryness too, some pear as well. Finishes with Golden Delicious Apple, pear, a little brandy & oaky/boozey dryness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, boozey warmth

A pretty good take on a so-so regular beer

The look is cloudy Golden. There is a slight hint of bourbon in the smell but mostly unremarkable. The taste also has a very slight hint of bourbon over the typical Golden notes of fruitiness but the flavors just seem to go together. The feel is non-distinct.

Overall, this beer is a swing and a miss. I applaud Anthem for trying to flavor a Golden in bourbon barrels but, this one doesn't quite hit the mark.

Delicious, but unremarkable. The appearance is basic. The smell and taste are solid, but not special. Overall, the barrel did this beer a favor, and everything came out great. I'm just not sure I'll remember it.

Pours a hazy golden color with little to no head. Has a strange smell I got whiffs of bubble gum and pineapple juice. Flavor is a funky slightly bourbon I guess. Nice mouth feel and easy swallow. Overall a weird beer experience. I haven't tried a lot of bourbon aged beers but this one has the least bourbon flavor which is good for me.
