Allagash Brewing Co. Fine Acre Organic Golden Ale

Allagash Brewing Co, in Portland Maine is one of the best breweries on the east coast and this is Allagash Brewing Co. Fine Acre Organic Golden Ale, 5.5% ABV. This beer has an all-organic malt bill. The golden ale style originated in Belgium and is quite popular in Belgium, Europe, and the United States. Fine Acre pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a three-finger bright white head that slowly dissipates. The aroma is somewhat sweet with a nice light lemon and banana. Fine Acre has a sweet and dry flavor, yeast notes, banana, very faint lemon, and a bit of malt. The mouthfeel is all most full, and this beer finishes with a light dry sweetness that carries on into the aftertaste. As usual for Allagash Brewing Co. Fine Acre Organic Golden Ale is pretty good, but I still think Duvel Belgian Golden Ale is the best. I give this particular golden ale a B. This is a solid example of the Golden Ale style. It does have a bit of heavier mouthfeel and flavor than some golden ales, and this one is not as high in alcohol as some either. But I enjoy this one and you should too! Please stay safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
