COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, regular
This was the beer we had in mind when we decided to brew Chinese craft beers. Honey Ma Gold is an easy-drinking ale enlivened by floral, mouth-tingling Sichuan peppercorns and organic, local honey from an apiary near the Great Wall. The Honey Ma Gold was GLB’s first brew and still our proudest creation.

jmgreenuk (10325) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 9, 2017
Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is malt, some honey and light spices. The flavour is light bitter with a light sweet malt, pepper, spicy light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Ok, but nothing special. All the flavours are too weak and very much in the background. Great Leap have brewed better beers than this.
