Nothing gives Dorothy more pleasure than the succulent aroma of the two finest English hop varieties, Goldings and Fuggles. She selected these and Maris Otter pale malt for her Golden Ale as they’re naturally a winning combination.
The result is a crisp and zesty beer that is as comfortable served on its own as it is alongside chicken dishes, salads and pasta.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 22 Nov 2008, drank 24 July 2008. Almost lager looking, a very light amber/dull yellow with a big white head, no sediment left the base of the bottle, so the beer was clear. Overal I was disappointed with this brew, very little aroma,taste or body. The Goldings and Fuggles Hops used and the Maris Otter Pale Malt failed to impart any great depth of character or flavours and it was a ’nothing beer’ to me. This is a great shame, because this is the first beer from Wye Valley that I have reviewed on this site and I generally like their beers.
