12 oz. can poured into a tulip.

Clear gold and capped with two plus fingers of white fluffy foam and some clumps of lacing.

Belgian yeast, fruity esters and some light hop aroma make up the moderate nose. Lightly sweet and peppery with plenty of Belgian yeast flavor it finishes dry and clean with just a bit of warmth. The body is medium light with decent carbonation.

Consistent, very drinkable and plenty enjoyable.

2017 batch, canned. Straw colored. Some lacing. Tastes way more like a Belgian ale than I would've expected, and I'm not a fan of Belgian yeast. The "Beazly" version being labeled "Golden Ale" instead of indicating a Belgian Ale is confusing, as other brews labeled that way (including ones from Baltimore) are actually Cream Ales. BA doesn't even have "Golden Ale" listed as a style. —Reviewed 2017/09/02

Pale straw color. Brilliantly clear. Pours rocky white head with decent retention.

Wonderfully peppery. Big yeast phenolic. Hint of candy sweetness.

Matches the aroma. A nice candy sweetness up front, then a big clean phenolic. Lots of clove and pepper. Finishes nice and dry.

Light/med body. Relatively high carbonation. Hint of alcoholic warming.

Better than I remembered from having it on draft previously.

Can dated "best by 04/29/17" into pint glass. Pours a pale straw color with a thin, off-white head. Initial impression is malt, with spices and tropical fruit notes following. Belgian yeast is evident, but nicely restrained. Mouthfeel is refreshing, with just the right amount of carbonation. Finish is dry amd spicy. I'm not a big fan of Belgians, but this is pretty good.

If you lived in Baltimore and like beer, chances are you've had a Natty Boh and an Ozzy (Beazly) at some point in your life. Having lived in Baltimore for several years and now moved to NYC, beer from Brewer's Art is something I miss dearly. I carried these 6-packs back with me by hand during my last trip there.

L - pale, golden color. hazy, with a fair bit of carbonation. A 1-2 finger head.
S - smells slightly sweet and somewhat hoppy. this one in particular smells a bit metallic (probably from sitting for a few months), but usually isn't.
T - dry, soothing, and refreshing. initial spiciness followed by fruity flavors and the distinctive Belgian yeast
F - medium mouthfeel, but complex enough to keep things interesting. probably the easiest 7% i have ever drank in my life, so it is easy to go overboard.
O - I have a unique love for this beer, so I am probably biased. However, this is the perfect beer for almost any occasion. Whether it be a pairing with dinner or just relaxing after a long days work, this beer (more than) gets the job done.

Best by May 8th 2017.

It pours a pale gold with an inch and receding head of foam.

Smells of kind of spicy hops, sweet and grainy malt.

The taste is nice. Grain with an ample off setting spicy hop character and some sweet notes. A very tasty Golden Ale that's very easy to drink and doesn't suffer from a thin body.
