COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
NOTE: Only ratings for the cask version should be entered here. The pasteurised bottled 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!

Hardly there aroma. Darker honey color. Quite a fair mild hoppy flavour with very subtle caramel undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Cask @ Cricketers, Bedford. Mid-gold, clear as a bell. Bit of white head, heavy lacing. Aroma is not particularly strong: sweet flowery hops. Taste is sweet throughout with a slightly more bitter turn right at the finish. Refreshing. Palette is fuller than most ales of this ABV.

prawlie (1080) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Pint at the Back of Beyond in Reading. Clear light gold, nice creamy, bubbly head. Lightly fruity, smooth, bitter, but soft on the palate. Light summer hop aroma. Its watery though, and a bit plain. Lacking in body.

A little hoppy and very smooth. Light color with a little head. After a long day in London, it was very enjoyable and refreshing.
