Redline 501 Golden Ale
Bright with a clean white head, 5:01 brings together a blend of North American and European ingredients for a crisp, refreshing ale. Saphir, Strisselspalt, and Willamette hops provide the aroma and flavour of fresh oranges, and pepper with a soft floral character. A crackery malt character is lightened with wheat for an extremely drinkable beer with elegant charm. 5:01 captures that satisfying moment when work stops and beer begins.
Golden Ale/Blond Ale
There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional "Canadian Ale", an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs - a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up - very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
