Altitude The Goldpanners Profit (500ml Bottle)
Named after the gold rush of the 1860s and the iconic first locals that settled Queenstown; the Goldpanners Profit is a brew we at Altitude are proud of.
Brewed like all our beers, with all New Zealand ingredients, the Goldpanners Profit is designed around a flavour packed, silky malt profile. This gives the beer an honest, refreshing and characterful flavour with a very dry finish and velvety mouth-feel. Pale gold in the glass, it has been subtly hopped to give a very light bitterness on the palate and a pleasing nose of summer fruits.
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.
