COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grantville (as this area was once known) Gold is one of our lighter house beers, but by no means a light beer. This pale gold beer is crisp and refreshing with a clean hop finish and is a great beer for newcomers to craft-brewed beers.

JorisPPattyn (7810) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2012
Draught Very pale gold, fine white rim. Grapey nose, green grapes; very demure, whiff of acetone. Quite sugary, but with a hoppy revenge/finish, that itself is fast gone again, falling flat. Light body, but reasonably refreshing. Well OK, it wasn’t designed to be a world beater.

I thought this was a nice gold ale that had a good color and nice head. The taste was sweet and malty and it went down smooth. Pretty good beer for a brew pub.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2010
Draft. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has primary notes of malt, but also lighter notes of sulphur and brewmash. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, as well as lighter notes of sulphur, leading to a bitter finish.
