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.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 Love the strong dry finish on this beer. This is a brewery that's going to get pretty popular pretty quickly, and this is the mainstay release from it.

Bottle. Lovely hazy mid-amber with a good 2 finger creamy white head which did not last for long but laced well. Aromas of honey, sweet caramel maltiness and the barest presence of hops. All of the Grand Ridge ales I have tried so far have had a very similar aroma. Flavour is as per aroma, but with quite a bitter finish from the hops which balances up the sweetness from the malt quite well. Palate is very smooth, quite a light touch with the carbonation which is fine and complements the flavours well. A very nice Australian Ale. Lookout Little Creatures, you have a challenger at last.

Brown 330ml bottle, best before June 2011, drank 1st June 2010. Poured into a Batemans half pint tumbler. Good old gold, rusty amber colour the head a dirty yellowed smokers fingered nicotine colour. The smell was all malt, fairly sweet malts at that, caramel and molasses. A yeast aroma becomes apparent as the beer warms in the glass, but no hop esters at all. The sweetness from the smell isnít allowed to take over the taste, a hop bitterness sees to that, so no aroma hops, just bitter acid producing plants used? The best Aussie beer Iíve had since arriving on BA/RB? I think so, full bodied and interesting flavours made this a very drinkable little bottle.

For a locally made brew it was really suprising, a definate ale taste of hops yet mellowed with a nice sweet aroma and aftertaste. Well worth any palate at this price.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 Tap. Tasty beer. Aromas of roasted caramel, and cola. Flavour is sweet, and it has good length. Palate is oily, and it has a medium body. Orange colour, with a thin and frothy white head.

Malt aroma from the bottle. Bronze body with marshmellowy head. Flavour is both strongly malty and bitter almost simultaneously. Very bitter aftertaste and there was a tingle in my mouth. A classic Aussie Bitter.

Nice strong malty after taste on this brew. For a beer priced at $2.50 you are definitely getting your moneyís worth.
