Only Available in Tynemill Pubs and is badged as the house brand ’We’re setting the Gold Standard’ a golden beer with distinct hop character derived from 100% goldings hops. A fairly low abv makes it a great lunchtime/early doors beer. It has quickly become an established favourite in Tynemill pubs and deservedly so!

I think I had this beer under 4 different names during one day in Nottingham! They were all quite good though and included the word "gold". Well-hopped, highly floral, straight golden brew wearing a full white head. Pleasant, almost tartish, lemony aromas that have a certain perfumey quality to them. Soft bready and grainy background. Grows quite dry and firmly bitter. A fine, fresh and tasty offering at this low ABV.

Cask conditioned at The Vat & Fiddle, Nottingham. Light brown beer with thick head. This is very tricky, as it is badged differently at certain pubs, this example was called Meadow Gold. A low malted, hoppy, refreshing bitter. Dry and bitter on the finish.
