Golden yellow color. Floral, tropical aromas and flavors of pineapple cake, orange blossom soap, and egg croissant with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish that shows accents of herb buttered toast, roasted pecans, peppered kale, and saltine cracker finish. A rock solid golden ale with a deft use of floral hops.

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.
