Brilliant gold color. Aromas and flavors of buttered herb toast, honeyed dried fruits, yams, and white flowers with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, charming, medium-long citrus scone, roasted corn, and peppered greens finish. A refreshing, well-balanced golden ale with vivacious hop bitterness.

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.
