COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lighter beer of our two offerings, this ale was designed to be an almost "non-ale". It is golden in colour, brilliantly clear, and clean across the palate. The mix of 4 malts still provides subtle character in the body, and the addition of malted wheat provides a slight, but characteristic citrusy finish. Hopped with noble Saaz and Golding, the bitter is barely perceptible, but mild hop flavours linger in the after-taste; the dry, clean finish provides a refreshing perk at the back of the palate. The full package mimics the classic milds of the British Isles, with a bit of Yukon spirit, just to make sure you remember what part of the world you're in!

Poured a deep gold with sustained white head. Thick lace. Nose of citrus and malt. Flavours included toffee, citrus, caramel and hops were present to balance the twix-like caramel sweetness. Bitter aftertaste hits the spot.

half-decent aroma, light and slightly fruity. Pours a golden brown (hence the name Yukon Gold), mild carbonation, fairly thick head. Palate is suprisingly good. Has a malty, creamy texture to it that is quite tasty. Mild hops. Exceeded my expectations.

Thin head over a deep golden coloured beer. Fruity aromas of strawberry and cherry, with a decent amount of caramel maltiness and a spicy hop aroma. Medium-bodied with a fairly clean finish. Citrusy flavour is also present. Not much bitterness and quite light-bodied.

Very little offense in the aroma, which is a good thing. Appears crystal clear and appealing. Smooth with a citrus finish...I am enjoying this more and more as I sip. If only this were as readily available as, say, Labatt.........

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Bottle. Thanks to gonzobeer. Brown golden color, bubbles, little white head mostly lasting, fair lacing. Very malty, honey and fruity aroma. taste of malt, caramel and honey, watery texture and finish dry but very nice golden ale. Bière de couleur brune doré avec pas mal de bulles dans sa robe. Mince collet blanc qui perdure presque jusqu’à la fin et qui colle assez bien au verre. Odeur de malt, miel et fruits. Au gout, elle est malté avec un gout de caramel et de miel. Texture aqueuse et fini sec mais, très bien pour son style.

On Tap at Originale Joe’s Lethbridge. Deep amber colour with a thick whiite head. NIce aroma lots of Caramel malt and a bit floral. Flavour is rather bitter but nicely balanced. In the mouth this beer is very creamy. I think its pretty good.

Bottle, thanks Rich! Golden yellow, soft bubbly white head. Aroma is quite pleasing - an intersting mix of grainy hops mixed with pils like Saaz. Soft mouthfeel, decent light malt and some hops in taste. More hops here than what i was expecting and a really nice package really - well made and well put together. One of the better "golden ales" that I have had from North America, god effort Yukon.

Can at Craig’s. Pours clear golden yellow, thin white head. Aromas of grassy hops and lemon. Taste is much the same, with light bready malt. Light bitterness on the finish. Not bad.
