Golden Valley Bottle – 500ml
Brewery: Breconshire Brewery
Available: Bottle (500ml)
Breconshire’s biggest selling and best known ale – the CAMRA Champion Beer of Wales 2004/5. A deep golden coloured ale, brewed with Progress hops – this single varietial ale has all the characteristics of this ‘soft’ hop making it a very drinkable, thirst quenching beer.
As you would expect the beer pours a cloudy and hazy golden amber colour.
There is a great sweet smell with peachy and floral notes hiding in there too.
An overtly hoppy and grassy floral taste which wasn’t too unpleasant, just a little ‘samey’. Some hints of bread and more grass. Little depth or character and rather one dimensional to be honest.
A soft finish.
