Advantages: Lovely Peachy Taste
Disadvantages: Will add inches to the old love handles.
My boyfriend fancies himself as a bit of a beer/ale connoisseur as such we cannot go into a bar without requesting a pint of something with a ridiculous name such as Radgie Gadgie or Sneck Lifter. It also means that over the years I have had to try a sip of each of these ales which have mostly tasted pretty awful to my feminine palate. However the other day there was a break through when I had my first taste of Golden Glory Ale by Badgers Brewery.
Golden Glory is billed by the brewers as "A refreshing premium ale subtly flavoured with extract of peach. An award-winning 4.5% ABV premium ale, well balanced with distinctive bitterness and a delicate floral peach and melon aroma."
The first thing you notice when you open a bottle is the very fruity smell, upon opening it you would be forgiven for thinking you had just opened an alcopop - Golden Glory has a nice aroma unlike any other beer I have tried. The colour as you would expect is golden and each bottle is 500ml.
So to the taste - I absolutely loved this drink. The peach flavour is really pleasant and though you may not think it would, it really compliments the bitter. Usually when beers claim a hint of this that and the other I can never really distinguish the flavour but with Golden Glory it is really obvious without being overly fruity - there is no denying you are still drinking ale. I would recommend you serve Golden Glory chilled. This light and refreshing drink perfect for the summer that will really appeal to ale and non ale drinkers alike. Who would have thought I'd drink an ale and rather than screwing up my face would think mmm Peachy.
I have never really been an ale drinker other than a Bitter Shandy which I like in the summer, such drinks have always appeared very masculine however I have to say that I think that Badger may have created an ale that will open up a whole new market of female drinkers.
I purchased Golden Glory from Tesco for about £1.70 per bottle so it is not only really tasty but you can get it a good price.
Summary: Ale is not just for boys....
