Port Townsend Golden Ale

The northwest has a lot of beer. So, please don't interpret my notes on beer as a snobby, critical thing (though I do don a monocle before drinking). It's just that I don't have a very good memory, and I can't remember what I liked. Take my numerical rating in the same spirit. It demeans beer to reduce it to a number. But without the number, I'll look back at my by beer description and have no idea if I enjoyed it.

Port Townsend Brewing Company, Golden Ale
Port Townsend, WA
Rating: 3/5

This beer is a little bit tart and cidery, though it doesn't really have a very strong taste. Unlike other golden ales I have enjoyed, it has no citrus taste. It reminds me of what I thought beer tasted like as a child.

May I make a request? The Elysian pumpkin beers, please! Both of them.

I will! But I want to try the light one again, and I need to try the dark one for the first time.

I drank this beer again at the Bottleworks tasting last weekend. I still agree with my original description, but I enjoyed it more than I seem to have the first time. Also, I learned that this is not a Belgian golden ale, which is why it didn't taste like other golden ales.
