From 12 oz can into mason jar glass. Last consumed yesterday.

Let me first say, if it was based on look and smell alone, this beer is easily a 9/10. It has a fantastic color to it and a wonderful smell. At very first taste, it is fantastic and refreshing with a very small bit of hop and then tasty deliciousness. However, (to be blunt) once the initial taste goes away in about 2 seconds, it both tastes and feels like Baltimore tap water. I bought a six pack and still have 3 of these sitting in the fridge because I simply cannot finish the rest of them.
The Brewers Art is were I went on my 21st, and I highly recommend going there. They have some fantastic beer in-house. If you can get to the Brewers Art, I'm sure this beer is fantastic. However, I cant say that I recommend this beer canned.

Greetings:

Picture yourself in a dungeon, with a thin shaft of light streaming in, illuminating your golden goblet full of a golden hued elixir. You are wearing a sheepskin tunic and your feet are shod with leather thongs. Your parched lips meet the Golden liquid that at once ignites the fires of Bezelbub from the depths of your loins. But this beast of a bar beverage DOES put the beast in Beazley. Never queasy, always easy, this golden ale is a delight for the senses. Subtle yet bold, with a dry finish, this is a refreshing brew with a clean and sharp mouth feel appropriate for a hay ride or campfire with friends.

Poured from 12 ounce can to snifter. Pours clear and golden with medium head. Hoppy and clean with some yeast aroma. Strong malt flavor mixed with tangy hops. Sort of a chunky taste. Overall a lot of flavor and good malt and hops balance.

Coming out of a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

A half-inch of semi-creamy head forms on-top this lighter than orange ale. Light waves of visible carbonation run from bottom to top, and a few splashes of lacing cling around the glass. The aroma is floral, dry, with hints of candied apricot and mint. This beer hits with syrupy apricots at the front. A note of booze follows. Honey and floral notes trail. This comes in a medium body which has syrupy moments, and overall a fine example of a Belgian Golden Ale.
