A Golden Ale by name and a golden ale by style. That’s this beer. A golden ale. Golden. Ale. Beer!
Brew a bright golden ale with a soft hop profile and balanced bitterness. That was the brief. There was not a lot to go on, but we nailed it nonetheless.
We went down a somewhat unorthodox route. For the style and us both. Some pale ale malt and some Vienna malt for a light, biscuity backbone. And then, just a touch of Citra and Mosaic hops for a smooth floral and fruity aroma and taste. All was fermented by a clean yeast strain to let the malt and hops shine.
It’s a sparkler when the cold gold fills your glass. And it’s a real thirst-quencher going down your throat. ”Barman! Another one!” You get the idea. A session beer if there ever was one. Yee-haw!
