Dead Guy Ale

Category: American Style Golden Ale

Date Tasted:

Alcohol: 6.8%
Minutely hazy deep amber color. Lively, fruity aromas and flavors of peach tart, dried mango, honeyed biscuit, and bread pudding with a silky, crisp, fizzy, off-dry medium body and a tingling, appealing, breezy honeyed raisin rye toast, spiced orange and yams, and radicchio finish. Not really a golden ale, but very tasty and satisfying none-the-less.

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.
