Date Tasted:

Dusty deep amber color. Aromas of cashew brittle and buttermilk, butterscotch syrup on toast, bit of honey candy, and wax candy with a supple, effervescent, fruity medium body and a breezy caramel cake with sour cream frosting, granola, and buttermilk dressed salad finish. An odd fruity ale for the table.

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.
