Clear light gold color. Aromas and flavors of honey butter on sourdough herb bread, kidd leather, white chocolate peaches and pretzels, and bruised apple with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a tingling, long roasted root vegetables, peppered melon, and kale finish. A very tasty golden ale with great fruit malt and invigorating hops.

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.
