Light gold color. Hoppy aromas of grapefruit peels, jasmine, sweat, mango pit, and new sneakers with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length pineapple, Hawaiian bread, cashew, mustard greens, and papaya vinaigrette finish. A very American style golden ale packed with fruity 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.
