Great River Golden Ale

This is a 4.8% ABV golden ale from the Great River Brewery of Davenport, Iowa. It is part of their Session Series.  

The beer pours yellow golden in color. There is a short and short-lived head of white foam. The aroma is light, toasted golden grain and a bit of lemon. The taste follows the aromas, toasted golden grain with citrus fruit, mostly lemon, followed by a grassy bitterness. It is light bodied, crisply, but not overly, carbonated, with a lightly bitter finish that adds a note of straw. Not super exciting, but better than the mass-produced lagers.
