Townshend's Cathcarts NTA (500ml Bottle)
Inspired by the classic ales of England. This beer echos the golden straw-like colour of my infrequent lager days, yet still has the malt and hop flavours that ensure my English nostalgia and heritage are never too far away.

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.
