COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle condiioned (at 4.1%).

Gloucester Gold has been handcrafted to celebrate the ancient art of brewing once practiced by the local monks and enjoyed by many a maritime merchant.
Today we use traditional brewing techniques and locally sourced ingredients to create a modern, distinctively crisp, hoppy and thirst quenching ale, for the discerning drinkers palate.
Our best selling ale by far. A beautifully balanced golden beer, bursting with massive whole hop aromas of tropical fruits, followed by a rounded lingering bitterness. A master piece to quench that summertime thirst

Bottle. My first from this brewery. Golden and slightly cloudy. Gentle bitterness with a fruity background. Hops are also present and there was a bitter finish.

Bottle shared at chriso’s May 2014 tasting - London. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Decent nose with pleasing tangerine and melon. Light sweet flavor with pale bread and slight pine needle bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Lightly hoppy on the finish with notes of peach, tangerine. Nice little golden.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Very hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is dry and a little crisp. Pithy orange and orange peel hops, medium bitterness. Light carbonated sting before the dry finish. Bitterish linger. Not bad.

(bottle; 4,1% abv) pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of straw, orange peel and pineapple, light butter, grass, bread dough and floral hops. flavour is mostly the same, orange peel and mango, with lots of straw, pale malts, herbal hops and some caramel in the medium-bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

BeerViking (2686) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle pours dark gold with a fine white head, tropical fruit and hints of melon and honey on the nose, rich piney body has tropical fruit notes and a sharp citrus and vegetal bitterness. Perhaps more an APA than a golden ale.

jerd16 (219) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
An extremely poorly crafted beer. When it has such wonderful tools at its disposal (hops and malts) something has gone badly awry. Poors golden/amber with no head, very little carbonation in this one. Aroma is almost non-existent. Some pine maybe? Body is so thin I thought I was sucking on Keira Knightley’s skeleton. As for the taste, there is a faint hint of citrus but that’s beaten into submission by earthy hops and some lasting astringent bitterness.

Cask conditioned handpump Slug & Lettuce Cheltenham 17/08/13. An orange gold coloured beer with pretty much no head. sharp citrs like hopping with dcent pale malts. Perhaps needs a bit more body from the malts but the hopping is good for sure. A nice beer.

Bottle from Gloucester Brewery. Louts lovely golden colour with white frothy head. Very citrusy hoppy taste. Goes down very smooth, easy drinking.

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Cornubia, Bristl. Gold with white head. Quite a perfumed beer, thinnish on the palate with the strange type oily note. I really didn’t take to it.
