Brilliant light gold color. Aromas and flavors of grilled mangoes, lemon herb bread, garlic and onion, and grape jam with a supple, tangy, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, charming, breezy white grapefruit, red oak lettuce, orange blossom cream, and plain wafer finish. A nice golden ale with a splash of modern 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.
