This is a very raw beer in that the smell and taste is reminiscent of un-fermented malts. Smells like my mash tun, really. It's not overpowering though. Looks nice in the glass, hazy golden color. Hops - alphas only, not too floral, just bitterness. I've really not been too impressed with Two Brothers', and this is no exception.

Pretty unique for a golden ale...clear golden in color...barely any lace...the nose is very soft with only some of the Belgian malt and saaz hops making their presence felt in even a slight way....This drinks as clean as it looks....crisp....I wouldn't say it's bitter, but it's got a pilsener like bite...relatively thin(surprisingly a bit watery...the last thing I expected)..not bad....not outstanding...

Sampled at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare.

Clear golden colored ale with a small white colored head.Smells a little of aspirin, other than that this isn't really aromatic.

Tastes of soda cracker malt and medium hop bitterness. Citrus hop taste on the tongue. Fairly standard flavor for a pale ale.

Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall just a "Middle Of The Road Ale." Nothing particularly memorable about it.

Poured a slightly hazy golden straw, with no much head to speak of. Aroma was sweet, with cotton-candy and vague fruit. Flavor continued to favor the sweeter side, with some indistinct fruit and sugary-grain. Hopping was barely enough to balance. Not a bad beer, but not a lot to commend this beer, either.

clear pale gold with not much head/lacing. understated nose-some vague fruitiness, sweet malt, and an grassy/vegetal aroma. lightly sweet malts upfront and a light but noticeable bitterness. just over light bodied with appropriate carbonation. maybe a good beginner's or lawnmower craft beer.
