COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal, 2014 International Beer Challenge (London). Hawthorn Golden Ale is a full flavoured and easy drinking ale made from a combination of carefully selected German Malts which give the beer its sparkling golden appearance. Generously hopped, but mild on the bitterness, the use of three different hops from the USA, UK and Australia impart a highly refreshing passionfruit and tropical fruit character. Hawthorn Golden Ale is the perfect beer for the warmer months. Best served chilled in a glass.

JuanFernandes88 (72) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017
Beautiful clear golden colour with an aroma of fruity hops and hints of sweet malt. Refreshing fruity taste with a clean bitterness. Enjoyable, sesionable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1913) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2017
Poured a crystal clear golden colour with a bright white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation moderate, average and medium to coarse. Aroma moderately strong of moderately sweet tropical fruits (pineapple, sweet citrus) with a hint of pine; fresh and inviting. Taste slightly of citrus/lemon with a hint of spices/pepper; low bitterness; low flavour compared to what the aroma suggested. Light body. Smooth with low bitterness on a short, fruity finish.

floydian1 (1490) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 4, 2017
From a 330ml bottle with BBD 26/9/17. A clear bright golden beer with a medium long lasting white head. Nose has light golden malts with fruity notes (pineapple, passionfruit, oranges) and a hint of hay/straw. Palate is sweetish and dryish with a fruity hop bitterness and clean mouthfeel. Bonus points for being not too sweet like so many Aussie golden ales. Pleasant, quaffable.

richlamb (18) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2016
Pale golden and clear (as you might expect), this one has a light and pleasant floral hoppy aroma, with a mild grainy malt flavour and nicely balanced clean bitterness. Hits of herbal hops in the residual flavour. Drinks very easily and has a bit more flavour and aroma than many golden ales, could maybe use a slightly more creamy mouthfeel but I was very pleasantly surprised here.

harrisoni (19310) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear gold colour lasting white head. Some floral hop. Drinkable enough golden ale. Not much bitterness, but the rose floralness is quite attractive.

tomgorm (60) - maroubra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2015
Incredibly fragrant with orange blossom and rose water, flash of bitterness over a smooth palate with a vanilla like warmth. Very pleasant finish.

motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 2, 2015
bottle from dan murphys in newcastle. quite a pale golden with a lingering film of head; light fruit salad in the aroma, lozenges; modest bitterness; unexciting but clean and easy drinking

3.2
Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bit of a suprise this one. Some nice full on tropical fruit. Easily drinkable and sessionable. Tasty beer, thirst quenching with some nice aroma and flavour.

2.7
TedE (1478) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Big nose full of floral peppermint. Pale yellow with light carbonation. One finger lasting head. Sour chalky mouthfeel, a little unexpected considering the nose. Zingy finish that keeps on giving. There’s a lot going on here, lemon, pepper, cloves, cheese, mango. Complex and fun.
