Notes / Commercial Description:
The true Summer Ale of Central Oregon! A Golden Ale, light and smooth. You can taste the craftsmanship in this easy drinking ale with a smooth blend of Cascade and Sterling hops and finished with a touch of Honey malt to balance it out. This is a great introduction if you are new to the world of Craft Brewing. For established craft enthusiasts, 10 Barrel Summer Ale is a good reprieve from overly hopped and overly malty alternatives.

Wildfire initially called this "Summer Seasonal," though as the beer gains a wider audience it will be brewed year round and sold as "Golden Ale." Neither name has much flare, but soon enough Wildfire itself will transform into 10 Barrel Brewing at which point we may hope that this beer will also attain a more assertive identity.

I drank a tall pilsner glass of this at the brewery. The glass highlighted its sustained carbonation, the lemon yellow, slightly hazed body, and the tall head of rocky foam that sat almost intrusively upon it. It delivered light, clean, estery aromas and a dry, crisp flavor that lent itself nicely to the airs of a mid-autumn afternoon. "Golden" showed a nice interplay of doughy yeast, restrained malt toastiness, and noble-derived (Sterling) balancing hops. It has good crossover appeal but still finishes as an ale.
