*Victory Golden Monkey- Pennsylvania, United States

Strong and sensual, this golden, Belgian-style ale glows. The richness of German malts and Belian yeast are tempered by a sparkling approach and overall light body. Abundant herbal, fruity notes make this one to savor.

* Dog Fish Head 60 Minute IPA- Milton, Delaware

It’s golden copper with a small head that dissipates into a thin film without much lacing. There is a slight piney zest but mostly grapefruit tones and a little malt sweetness. The bitterness is not over-powering, making this a smooth, well-balanced, crispy IPA.

*Zeppelin Hall – Butler, NJ
In the mid 1800′s, the Munich brewers added a new style of beer, Helles Lager, to meet the growing demand for the Czech pils, clean golden lagers. Similarly, our Helles Lager shares the same bright, golden color, plus spicy hop characters. By adding more malty goodness, the hops are more subdued and balanced.

*Dogfish Head Raison D’etre- Delaware, United States

Dogfish Raison D’Etre (translates to ‘the reason for living’) A deep, mahogany Belgian-style brown ale brewed with beet sugar, raisins, and Belgian-style yeast, lives up to its name. The flavor profiles are varied and interesting and work well together creating a complex unique brew that feels and tastes like no other beer.

*Thomas Jefferson’s Tavern Ale - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
This historic, strong golden ale is brewed according to Jefferson’s original recipe, using ingredients specified and grown on his Virginia estate. This deep golden ale gives off a strong caramel, brown sugar aroma. Sweet malts dominate the flavor with hints of caramel, plums and cherries. A smooth, full bodied ale that is well balanced with easy drinkability.

*Warsteiner - Germany
A rich, golden colored beer with lots of carbonation and large, puffy white head that dissipates rather quickly. A flavorful entry leads to a dry medium body of rye, orange marmalade and toasted nut flavors. This silver world champion beer finishes with a lingering dried citrus and earthy hops fade. An excellent summer into fall beer.

*Franzikaner Dunkel- Germany

Nut brown color with a tan head. Taste is pleasantly sharp and zesty with hints of dark malt, spice and a refreshing wheat flavor.

*Hacker-Pschorr – Germany
It is copper in color and some mild amber tones. Nice foamy head with very minimal lacing. There is a mild aroma, but fairly complex for this style. It has a predominately nutty nose, with some dark bread as well as faint earthy/flowery hop presence. It definitely has a bite!
