This beer has good assertive pithy bitterness with a malty backbone and a lemon and lime aroma. Brewed with some Pale Ale malt, Crystal malt, Munich and some Wheat malt. We use Columbus and Chinook hops and a new hop called Citra, responsible for adding great lime flavours.
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.
