Brilliant golden straw color. Bright, sweet, earthy creamy dank aromas of honey butter, frosted scone, and grilled citrus with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-long pine resin, peppery greens, and golden beet finish with dusty papery earthy harsh tannins. A deliciously satisfying, nicely hopped golden ale that is sure to please.

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.
