Pale light brilliant amber color. Muted, toasty aromas and flavors of toast and herbed citrus with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, interesting, brisk lettuce, pepper, and grassy earth finish. A solid quaffer.

True to their name, American style golden ales are golden to light copper in color and range from 4-5.5% in alcohol. They have a more subtle overall character and lighter body in comparison to typical pale ales and do not contain the same fruitiness of English ales. The most important qualification is that they are brewed domestically. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Fish Tale Organic Blonde Ale, Kona Big Wave Golden Ale and Half Acre Gossamer Golden Ale.
