Stock up

A year to forget for financiers, 2008 signalled the start of a worldwide recession. The year’s Vintage Ale still represents a great investment though, as it continues to mature over time.

Brewer's Notes

This vintage produces a rich fruit aroma laced with dark orange hop notes. A full luxurious mouthfeel is finished off with satisfying alcohol warmth.

Food Pairing

The ultimate beer for a decadent dessert

Golen amber in colour with aromas and flavours of nuts, toffee, caramel and fruit (particularly orange). Its full body will match the dense texture of the pudding with the beers' sweetness complementing the toffee and the overall sweetness in the dessert.

The three Cs method was used to match our food - compliment, cut through and contrast. To find out more click here.

Something similar

Share in the joy of Golden Pride

Everybody loves a pint but good things come in smaller measures too. Golden Pride is a premium, superior-strength bottled ale, bursting with flavours of sweet orange oil and toasted grains. At 8.5% ABV, it’s to be savoured like a fine wine.

Something completely different

Ride the rapids of Wild River

Riding the wave of the US craft beer movement, Wild River is an exciting take on American Pale Ale. It’s a double-hopped brew made with several Californian hops – a golden beer inspired by The Golden State.
