COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ironbridge gold is a smooth ale with a subtle hop character. Originally brewed for the 2008 Brass Band Festival using Maris Otter malted barley and new Worcestershire hedgerow hops, Gold has quickly become one of our most popular beers.

Cask in the Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury. Very pale with a thin white head. A little thin on flavour, but there are some pineapple and grapefruit flavours in there. Good for a pale ale.

From cask. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and grassy. Bitter, grassy and vague herbal. Dry and bitter finish.

Cask at GBBF 2013. Light golden bitter. Pleasantly hoppy, with a nice bitter finish. Actually not sure Iím rating the same beer here - it was definitely called Ironbridge Gold and abv is the same, but the blurb on the tap said it was brewed with Centennial. Thatís what I drank but seems very different from other reviews here.

Cask pour. Pours clear golden yellow with a small white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is very faint, perhaps a touch of honey. Flavor is grass, honey, surprisingly bitter, but without a lot of hop flavors to add to the mix. Medium body. Offputting, actually.

Had this at the Freewheel Brewing Co. in Redwood City (brewed on site). Nice clear golden colour with small head. Very light fizz. Nice British beer. (K)

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Slightly hazed golden colored beer with a white head. Floral hops, mild grass, and some nice toasted bread. A hint of citrus peel, but a touch watery. The flavor is sweet and bready. Light toast qualities, some floral and grassy hops, light citrus peel, and some water.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
500ml Brown bottle obtained from the brewery. Best before the end of Sept 2011, some 45 days away (rated Aug 2011). Poured into an Abbot Ale tankard: golden, light body, wispy head of white islands on top. Slight hoppy aroma, the taste more hoppy. A regular non-exciting feel to the brew to be honest. The hops give it a mini citrus flavour and I struggled to find any malt content during the tasting. An OK brew, not bitter enough to be a traditional English Bitter and the label does say itís a ícontinental style beerí whatever that means. I know this brewery does better beers, I hope to review some of those one day.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2010
Cask@The Elm Tree, Cambridge. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is fruits, nectar, wood and some bready and doughy notes. Flavour is fruits, wheat, some nectar, wood and mildly earthy. Fruity aftertaste.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove. Gold with white head. There is a reasonable malty body to this, it manages to be biscuity and a hint of toast, then there is a light resinous hop, fragile but reasonably tasty. Much better than a previous bottle from this brewery.

SaintMatty (5192) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2009
500ml Bottle - Golden in colour with a white head. Malty aroma with a hint of hay, hops and a slightly tart element. The taste is also rather tart with hints of fruit and a moderate bitterness. I am not sure if it is meant to taste like this. I will try it again in future and find out. I am sure itís much better in cask form, or Iíve been unlucky with this particular bottle, as my experience of it doesnít seem to echo the other reviews on here.
