Our flagship beer, Henley Gold, is a refreshing Golden Ale brewed using some long forgotten techniques. The Maris Otter malt is balanced with a careful blend of English and Continental noble hops.

MrTipple (3182) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Wheat and other grain and bread malts, bread dough, some citrus fruits, light caramel. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Intense bread and grain malts, wheat, creamy texture, soft carbonation, light citrus fruits in the finish. Would probably call this a Wheat Ale, but fairly nice tipple, nothing too intense, but immensely quaffable. Keg at the brewery, Henley-on-Thames.
