Racecourse Brewery Phoenix Golden Ale (330ml Bottle)
Over the years Reefton has given birth to many a bright idea - the Town of Light had the first public supply of electricity in the Southern Hemisphere - but no less illuminating was the Racecourse Brewery which wishes to advise of our FIRST CLASS GOLDEN ALE. Of regular body, brewed from the very best malt and hops procurable, and no care and attention spared to produce an article of truly high quality, which for sparkle, purity and relish cannot be surpassed.
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.
