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

BlackHaddock (4929) - 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 (5734) - 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.

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.
