’A pale golden ale’

Tasting notes & ingredients
A pale golden ale at 4.0% abv with soft apricot and lychee notes, medium body and bitterness but with a crisp finish.
Brewed with two Australian hop varieties – Summer, a relative newcomer, and Topaz, which has been around for a few years.

What’s the story?
Topaz Gold is inspired by one of Fergus’ visits to the hop merchants where he ran into an Australian hop supplier. The hop variety Topaz has been found to have a lot of wonderful flavours so we use it much later in the brewing process so we can extract very small amounts of bitterness and lots of flavour.

Want to know more?
Topaz was initially developed because a small amount can add a lot of bitterness, reducing the amount of hops needed in a beer.
It’s perfect to be enjoyed alongside spicy Thai and Indian food.
