Drinking this at The Natty Greene's Brewing Company in downtown Greensboro NC.
Poured from a tap into a pint glass.
Looks golden yellow with a white foamy head that dropped quickly to a thin ring.
Smells lightly bready, floral, herbal, lightly spicy sweet.
Taste follows the nose nicely with a bit of citrus, lemon.
Mouth feel is medium for the style.
Overall a very nice example a Golden Ale that I would definitely order again.

Pours a clear yellow with minimal head. Scent is of malt with some sweetness. Taste and aftertaste follow the scent and a light mouthfeel. Ok beer, about halfway between average and above average

This is a very good beer, if you get a good one... They vary. The best ones have an incredible open graininess... they smell just like the Natty Greene's brewery! Fun, I want more! This is not my typical variety of beer, but these can be good... CAN... it seems 50% of the time, they are dead, boring, missing the aroma and flavor.

Pours a very light gold with good clarity. Head is on the small side with minimal lacing.

Smell is crisp and grainy. Not a lot of aroma which is understandable considering the abv and style.

Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Fair amount of malt flavor given the very low abv. Thin mouthfeel which isn't surprising.

A good true session ale. Also a great "light beer" that blows the macro equivalents out of the water (no pun intended). I do wish it was in a can and priced lower but such is craft.
