Gippsland Gold is an Australian style bitter pale ale, vintaged over an extended period of time, with a creamy round flavour and pleasant hop bitterness. An easy drinking and thirst quenching beer.

Bottle from my brother; poured an amber color with a white, somewhat milky head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, fruit and some unexpected banana. A good amount of carbonation on the palate. Flavor was a little dicey to begin with; got better with a few tastes. Some toffee, fruit, grass and some weird herbal? elements at the end. Wasn’t too easy to drink. Not a great beer.

...bottle. Nice flavor, good water, and interesting hops. The hop notes are not typical, and actually add alot to this brew. Medium body, smooth on the palate, with hints of fruit. Goes down well, but overpriced.

330ml bottle. The Gippsland Gold poured a medium amber colour with a fair, slightly off-white head that dissipated quite quickly. Aroma was hoppy and fruity, with hints of banana and caramel. The taste was malty with a toffee type sweetness. It also had some fruity notes. Creamy mouthfeel with small, tight bubbles and a lingering bitterness. Very easy to drink.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2008
Bottled. Whilst in Sydney, Aus.
Solid amber body with a fine lacy white head, clinging. Sweet, adjunct aroma. Soapy, washed flavour. The structure falls appart the longer itís left in the glass.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle (330ml). Poured amber with a good size creamy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of butter, caramel, sweet malts and vanilla. Flavor was a mild grassy hop bitterness, mild toffee, butterscotch and a subtle fruitiness. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, slight watery texture, creamy mouthfeel and a good finish.

Soory, but just not my cup of tea. Flavour is on thing but this is just over the top. No real style just put a pile of hops and malt in a bottle and shake

gam (3346) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2008
Nice looking pour,light ocre colour dissappearing head to froth cover,aroma is hoppy,flavour is honey,barley but I found the finish to be watery bit unpleasant whatever else was there in flavours (malt,floral or earthen) was very mild or taken out by the watery taste.

ChrisTurner (206) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle (Drunk too cold on a hot day) -- Rich amber with small white head with poor retention and OK lacing. Wonderful aroma with fruit and caramel. Fruit and malt in the flavour with a touch of bitterness. A very nice drop. Will be buying more soon.

Toffee coloured, no head but some bubbles that cling to the side of the glass. Aromas light hoppy. Strong toasty malt, nicely bitter.
