Moa Thirsty Bulldog (440ml Can)
A huge hit with visitors to Moa’s Marlborough brewery, this charming English Summer Ale style brew boasts all UK hops (Fuggles and East Kent Goldings), along with Kiwi and English Ale malts. Notes of coriander, subtle fruit esters and a hint of ginger spice bring further dimensions of flavour to this easy drinking drop, making it the perfect companion for a warm summer’s day - or pretty much any day for that matter.
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.
