Brilliant light gold color. Aromas and flavors of toasted tortilla, honeyed raisin scone, corn puff cereal, and clay with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dryish light body and an effortless, breezy citrus marmalade on toast, watercress, and white nut finish. A lovely, toasty, super sessionable golden ale that nails the style.

American Style Golden Ale

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.
