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!

TBone (17524) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottled 500ml. K-Isolinna. BB 09/2013. Clear golden color, small white head. A bit skunky, salty English hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Nutty, woody, citrusy English hops in a bit too thin malt base. Standard British macro bitter. Not too bad, and even slightly better than keg version I had recently.

OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from Bargain Booze... Hops, hops and hops... thus bitter, and floral. Not very interesting.

StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
A golden yellow coloured beer with a thick frothy white head. A light hoppy aroma, hints of resinous citrus fruit and biscuity malt. Dry mouthfeel. A tangy citrusy fruit flavour, a little sour toward the end. The finish is dry and a touch resinous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
