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

500ml bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Cloudy golden colour with a thin rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange fruits. Taste is tropical fruits, hops, pale malts, and long lasting citric bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 28 Nov 2015) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, toast and leafy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of biscuits, citrus, apricots, leafy hops and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing. Quite nice.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Cask, hand-pulled pint in The Station, Oakengates on 18th June 2015. Bright golden yellow body with a lasting white crown: lager like in looks (apart from the lasting crown bit). Decent blend with the hops just about winning in dominance over the malts with a fruity aroma and a bitter finish to a beer that has a semi-sweet flavour, again with a fruity nature.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Cask half pint at The Chambers, Gloucester. Golden colour, small white head, nice lacing. Nice aroma of fruity hops (my guess would be Styrian Goldings - or even some American hop?). Fruity hops in the flavour too, with a finely balanced bitterness.
