History: Shropshire Gold was first brewed in July 1998. We had decided that a brew was needed that could compete with the session beers produced by National brewers such as Bass as well as other local producers. We decided to make a beer that would have a rich gold colour to please the eye, a full rich flavour to make it appeal to those who preferred a stronger beer, and a pronounced hop character to please everyone! This concept obviously worked as sales have increased markedly year on year. Shropshire Gold now makes up over half the production of the brewery and is listed as the house beer in at least 40 local outlets, a testimony to a consistent product and a keen price.

500ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of lemon tea, lemon. Taste is initially minimally grainy, rapidly supplanted by fruity hoppy notes, again lemon tea, lemon, a strawy touch, subtle sweetness; light body, almost a bit watery. Light and simple, but tasty and refreshing.

Cask at Streatham Hill 'spoons. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma is all about the malts, hint if honey and lemon. Light body, mild carbonation. Honey, lemon, bread dough, biscuit... Tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of Benzai. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is malty, sweet and honey. Flavor is fairly bitter, grainy and malty again. Easy drinking, light mouthfeel. Not so interesting, but decent stuff.

Medium amber with a white frothy lacy disappearing head. Smells of sugar water, caramel and pale malt. Thin light body. Taste of sweet malt, and not to much else. A bit of bitter hops on the finish. Mostly watery.

Bottle at the "Lets celebrate the fact that Dean is already the Mayor of M&S Den Haag even though it’s only been open for 24 hours tasting!". Poured a clear straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is hop citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a grapefruit citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not a bad brew!
