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!

This is a very malty ale...but well done. On the pour...the nose was 99% malt.Nice colour..light Amber and gold with a off white head. On taste...not near as malty and boring as the nose would indicate.Well balanced to the side of malt ,but smooth and mild.Just enough hops to finish the beer neutral dry. Light carbonation and loots of grain make this beer a malt lovers paridice..this would be a good beer for someone coming off of Molsen or Kokanee. It a nutshell ...this is English pale ale Canadian stlye..light and inoffensive. in flavour.

@ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours amber, some grass on the nose but nothing else. Bland taste other than bread/yeast heavy bread like lager, not for me.

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.

Its a good beer. Probably the best beer North of 60 in are great country. I lived in Whitehorse YK and we used to go to a bar called Skyjackers and drink Yukon Gold in what they called Thundermugs which were schooners. Great fond memories of the people I met there and the beer I drank. There is nothing abrasive about this beer its clean and light on the palate. Many enjoyable sessions can be had drinking this.

Gold pour, white head. Nose is malts, earth, grain, and water. Thin palate, wet cardboard, grain, malts, not too appealing.

Can, courtesy of SHIG – thanks! A vigorous pour yields a finger of foamy off-white head atop a dark gold (closely resembles honey) body. Nose is sweet, malty, and light grass. Tastes sweet too. Malty, grass, and corn syrup. Just a little grassy in the finish to give it a light crispness. A little more body than most in this style. I found it to be refreshing.

Can thanks to long time friends grabbing it for me on their travels to Alaska: Poured a golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is grain with some sweet bubblegum. Taste is malty with some fresh grain, starts off wet and finishes dry.

This is a good beer. It pours a golden yellow colour with a nice sized head. The aroma is grainy malt and floral hops. The flavour is similar, with a nice bitter finish.
