Buffalo Gold

I received this bottle as a gift.  I don't know if it's a beer I would have selected for myself.  That is, if I saw it on the shelf at my beer store, I wouldn't have picked it up on impulse.  But after trying it, I would definitely grab a bottle or two of Buffalo Gold. It's a surprisingly tasty beer!

I don't know why I'm surprised, though.  I like  Boulder Beer Company's Hoopla a lot.

Buffalo Gold (4.95% ABV) pours a rich reddish gold.  My gentle pour didn't build a big head but what it had was thick and lingering.  

The aroma is a mouthwatering blast of caramel malt and toasted grains.

The taste is sweet caramel malts with a hint of melon; honeydew perhaps.  The sweetness is balanced out by a mild bittering and complimented by yeasty breadiness. This is a very flavorful beer. 

The mouth feel is light to medium with nice effervescence.

 The modest alcohol content makes this brew perfectly sessionable.  It goes down nice and easy.

I liked it.  Summer's coming and this would be a good brew to refresh you on a hot day.

Overall: very good.
