What the brewers say

“Built for the warmer months, our Golden Ale is brewed with American Willamette hops and pale wheat malt to create a low-alcohol American golden ale that balances bread-like malt flavors with herbaceous hops and a vibrant carbonation.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A pleasant blend of citrus and floral hops notes mixed with a touch of malt sweetness. Peach and cherry emerge on the end, offering nice complexity.”

Flavor: “A medium amount of malt sweetness is well-balanced with an appropriate level of hops character. The sweetness enhances some of the citrus notes, giving it a slight mandarin-

orange character with melon. Moderate carbonation, which helps to accentuate the dryness.”

Overall: “What starts as a fairly straightforward beer opens up and provides a decent amount of depth with the interplay between a pronounced light malt character and distinct hops.”
