Changed name from Thoroughbred to Thoroughbred Gold in 2007
"Brewed in celebration of Thwaites’ award-winning Shire Horses. A winning Thoroughbred is the result of breeding the best stallion to the best mare, with the proof of superiority and excellence being established on the race track. Thoroughbred Gold also has the same winning combination derived from the best Maris Otter and Pearl Malts with a blend of Fuggles and Goldings hops to give a well-balanced beer that stays the course right to the finish. " ABV was 4%; changed to 3.7%

Bottled. A dark golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of elderflowers, hops, and some other flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, elderflowers, and a bit of malt, leading to a bitter finish.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
Bottle from my local evil supermarket. Golden with thin white head that faded quickly. Quite drinkable but a little mild in the flavour department. Slight bitter finish, some hops and a little mild citrus. Not bad but hardly tummy banana material.
