Brewer's Gold - drinking notes

The Brewer's Gold turned out to be a worthwhile experiment - the bitterness you get from big, late hop additions is totally different to a standard bittering addition. The amount of hop flavour is huge, and seems to require more aging to balance with the rest of the flavours. The final beer wasn't really anything like the original although its one to try again sometime, probably with some cascade/citrus hop aroma additions as from this test its hard to believe Crouch Vale use only Brewer's Gold hops in this brew as the taste is very different.
