beer: islands golden ale

store: islands
type: not sure exactly, i’ll say cream ale
abv: 5.50%

i like islands for happy hour… decent food, but their beer is served the right way — cold and in frosty mugs…

one of my favorites of theirs is the standard — the golden ale

it’s strange to look for something on google and not finding any results. not even beer advocate had any results on this — perhaps i’m not putting it’s actual name or something… i dunno.

“how’d you know the abv, joe?” — well, lemme tell ya

i went to the islands web site and filled out their contact form (don’t get me started on their use of “comic sans”). here’s what i typed:

I had the Golden Ale at your restaurant and I really liked it.Do you know what the ABV of that particular beer is? I couldn’t find it anywhere online.

then… a speedy TWO days later, i get this response in my email:

Hi Joey,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I checked with our Food & Beverage Director, our Golden Ale ABV is 5.5%

I hope this information was helpful!
