SA Gold is a full-flavoured, hoppy and refreshing golden ale, brewed at the home of the famous Brains SA in Wales. Careful use of Target hops creates a satisfying bitterness, perfectly balanced by vibrant citrus aromas and complex hop flavours from late-hopping using Cascade and Styrian Goldings. A deliciously satisfying and refreshing pint!

doesn’t seem to taste remotely like it’s regular SA equivalent. SA gold is a british golden ale akin to the likes of old golden hen, or fursty ferret. these are probably crappy, ham-fisted comparisons but they are the first that spring to mind. i was initially disappointed, expecting it to be some sort of prestige improved version of the original, but with age has come an appreciation of this brew.

500ml bottle picked up in Wales. Aroma is yeast, followed by metal - smells lagery. Pours exceptionally clear with a good white head. Pretty well carbonated, and a good mouthfeel. Tastes as it smells, but with a soft lingering hop note (weak). Quite drinkable, but let down by the metallic tastes.

Can opens with wild gushing. Aroma & taste: buscuit malts and floral hops. Light to medium bitterness. Long hoppy finish. Generally decent.
