COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (130) - 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.

imdownthepub (9623) - 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.

Bottle from the Hop Pocket, Bishops Frome, consumed in a field at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon Friday 20th July 2012 Pours a very hazy first piss of the day colour but with a large foamy white head. Soft in mouth, perhaps with a little sweetness but nice underlying bitterness. Nicely fruity and a much better than expected UK golden beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

foxo82 (645) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Cask at Syston & District Social Club Beer Festival 2012. Hardly any difference between this and the Gloucester Mariner I had at the same festival. Copper coloured. Aroma herby, like turkey stuffing (seriously). Bitter, hoppy and dry tasting with a medium duration finish. Grassy, herby. Slightly superior to the Mariner in that its flavour was fuller, bitter-er and longer-er.
