Simple, refreshing and inviting, our Golden is a delightful introduction to the world of craft ales. While ales have been around for thousands of years, golden ales—sometimes called summer ales—are relatively new on the scene, with a freshness to match.
Like New Zealand in summer, Golden is easy-going and relaxed. With a colour reminiscent of dry grass, understated hop flavours, a soft malty sweetness and gentle bitterness, it’s a great choice for any occasion.
Golden is a nicely balanced, Pilsner-style beer with a clean finish. Pale malts and two local hop varieties contribute to its sunny character, which perfectly reflects its New Zealand origins.
