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!

really nice pale ale. if you're canadian and like blue buck or okanogan spring's pale ale, you'll dig this. super balanced beer from colour to smell to bitter//sweet, it's right in the middle and done so with grace.

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.

Sweet malty nose of with hints of peaches and lemons. Full bodied with German malts all leading to a rounded malty finish.

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.........
