I thought the bottle of this one looked a little fishy and unfamiliar and after digging around on the internet found this little tidbit from ratebeer:
Editor’s note: Contract brewed for Stienhaus Brewing Co. / Trader Joe’s by both Firestone Walker (for the west coast) and August Schell (for the east coast).
So… that all being said, this golden ale isn’t half bad. I see mixed reviews over all, but at 7.1% and taken in line with other’s of a similar ilk (scottish, golden) it is balanced yet has enough character to be present and accounted for. Finishes well and is nice and easy to drink. Thanks to Mr. Dave for the taste on this one!
