This has a golden ale complexion with a papaya, pineapple and lemon aroma. Gold has a soft, full bodied creamy taste.
American Pale Ale brewed with US Mosaic and Comet hops. Mosaic is a craft brewer's go-to hop with tropical fruit, blueberry and citrus characteristics and Comet is known for its spicy, grapefruit notes. Underlying these heavenly aroma hops is a grist of principally pale Maris Otter. English First Gold is added at the start of the boil for bittering. At just 3.5% it's a session strength ale with plenty of character.
The pale brown to amber medium bodied beer has a strong hop character. It's a bitter but with unconventional warm tones of malt that lingers on the palette, the complex malty flavours gives richness, balanced by the clean hoppy finish. A good session bitter brewed with local British hops picked from the farm seven miles down the road in Worcestershire - Fuggles, Goldings, Challenger and Progress.
Our champion Mild has a smooth character and taste notes of chocolate malt, which gives this beer plenty of flavour and belies its strength.
