Our flagship beer, multi award winner and Champion beer of Yorkshire 2012
A beautifully balanced pale straw-coloured premium bitter. Distinctive floral aroma, leading to a predominantly citrus taste, with grapefruit and lemons to the fore. A quenching bitter finish. Our most popular beer! Finest quality pale malt carrying choicest west coast American hops to create a beautifully balanced pale ale. The aroma is fragrant, fruity. The flavours are mellow with hints of bubblegum and refreshing grapefruit. The finish is bittersweet, without being cloying.
|First Brewed: 16th August 1996|
This is consistently Abbeydale''s biggest selling beer.
First brewed in 1996 it was designed as a premium pale bitter to show drinkers of a very big and old-established brewery's offering just what a beer could taste like... After a bit of name-calling and throwing of stones, it had no trouble in establishing a reputation as the genuine Sheffield Gold Beer. It is now available as a regular beer at a number of outlets in and around Sheffield.
It was an immediate hit - the very first batch won the "Beer of The festival" prize at Sheffield Beer Festival.
The name isn't eccesiastical, but it's such a good name and such a lovely image, we couldn't resist. And why should we, we make the rules and we don't like rules.
