COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml (pastuerised) bottles.
NOTE: Only ratings for the bottled version should be entered here; the cask version has a separate listing.
SA Gold is a full-flavoured, hoppy and refreshing golden ale, brewed at the home of the famous Brains SA in Wales. Careful use of Target hops creates a satisfying bitterness, perfectly balanced by vibrant citrus aromas and complex hop flavours from late-hopping using Cascade and Styrian Goldings. A deliciously satisfying and refreshing pint!
