Yukon Gold

Yukon Gold is the pride of Whitehorse, where it is crafted by Yukon Brewing. My soon-to-be brother in-law has been insisting that I try this hazy, orange-gold ale for some time, and I'm glad I finally got around to it.  It contains 5% alcohol and comes in awesome looking 341mL bottles.
Y.G. is an English pale ale. It's well-carbonated and topped with a thin layer of off-white head.  The Gold has a toasty, sweet aroma, with some pleasant mashmallow notes. It has a fairly thin mouthfeel and a flavour that goes from sweet to bitter and builds to a considerably hoppy finish.

Not a bad little pale ale. Yukon Gold is a bit wet on the front end, but makes up for it with a punchy bitter aftertaste that really hits the spot.  If you see Yukon Gold, be sure to give it a try.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
