COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle condiioned (at 4.1%).

Gloucester Gold has been handcrafted to celebrate the ancient art of brewing once practiced by the local monks and enjoyed by many a maritime merchant.
Today we use traditional brewing techniques and locally sourced ingredients to create a modern, distinctively crisp, hoppy and thirst quenching ale, for the discerning drinkers palate.
Our best selling ale by far. A beautifully balanced golden beer, bursting with massive whole hop aromas of tropical fruits, followed by a rounded lingering bitterness. A master piece to quench that summertime thirst

Povester (13) - Birmingham, West Midlands, - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from Gloucester Brewery. Louts lovely golden colour with white frothy head. Very citrusy hoppy taste. Goes down very smooth, easy drinking.

emosredlig (1) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2017 does not count
More substantial on the palate than most golden ales, with less citrus flavour than most. A satisfying mouth feel, pleasing aroma and good alcoholic tingle on the tongue

mr_h (5949) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Cask, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at State Bar, Glasgow on 29 May 2017, grassy, herbal aroma, deep golden with a thin white head and sparse lacing, grassy, barley sugar, grainy, sweet.

HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - APR 19, 2017
September 27, 2015 - At The Hack & Hop - handpull cask. Slightly hazy gold, bubbly, with an attractive decent mottled white/off-white lasting head. Simple pungent golden ale aroma - light grain, plenty of dry grassy bitterness, not too sweet, no alcohol. Taste follows, has a bit of green peppercorn spice to it but that’s not at all off-putting, quite dry and catty - solid and refreshing. Airy, astringent, light carbonation, somewhat quick if dry and peppery slightly gluteny finish; I liked that peppery bite!

3.4
LazyPyro (1601) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
500ml bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Cloudy golden colour with a thin rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange fruits. Taste is tropical fruits, hops, pale malts, and long lasting citric bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

3.2
Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2016
(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 28 Nov 2015) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, toast and leafy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of biscuits, citrus, apricots, leafy hops and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing. Quite nice.

3.3
BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Cask, hand-pulled pint in The Station, Oakengates on 18th June 2015. Bright golden yellow body with a lasting white crown: lager like in looks (apart from the lasting crown bit). Decent blend with the hops just about winning in dominance over the malts with a fruity aroma and a bitter finish to a beer that has a semi-sweet flavour, again with a fruity nature.

2.4
MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Very hoppy aroma. Quite tangy. A little citrusy. Clear. Golden honey yellow. Decent head. Smooth and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mr_Pink_152 (5550) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from M5 Gloucester services. Golden colour beer with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit taste malty with citrus with bitter finish.

3.1
sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
Poured bright amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet and bitter hops. Light body, flavour as the aroma.

3.6
Sigmund (7919) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Cask half pint at The Chambers, Gloucester. Golden colour, small white head, nice lacing. Nice aroma of fruity hops (my guess would be Styrian Goldings - or even some American hop?). Fruity hops in the flavour too, with a finely balanced bitterness.
