Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
This beer was originally brewed as a seasonal beer for the summer that never really appeared in 2008! It proved to be extremely popular and went on to win the ’Somerset Beer of the Festival’ at the 2008 Somerset Camra Beer Festival in Minehead. Because of its popularity we have decided to add this beer to our regular range that are brewed all year round.
The beer is brewed from very lightly kilned Maris Otter malt with the addition of flaked maize and wheat malt. This gives a very light, straw coloured beer which is delicately hopped with German Perle hops making it a refreshing drink for a warm sunny day, or indeed any day of the year!
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.
