Wanaka Beerworks Alpine Miere (330ml Bottle)
A dry golden ale where full biscuity malt flavours strike tenderly the tongue, followed by a refreshing flow of coriander and oranges, just to be finished off by a lasting manuka/clover honey and hallertauer touch to the troth.
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.
