Priding themselves on producing a range of drinks that only use England’s finest ingredients, Cambridge-based drinks company Green & Pleasant have recently added a Cider and Golden Ale to their range. The latter of which is our Beer of the week.
The brand’s craft Lager is already very popular across London, featured as the house Lager at The Ritz’s Rivoli Bar, and the new Golden Ale looks set to become just as popular. Light on the nose with gentle hints of Biscuit, and easy on the palate, Green & Pleasant describe the drink as being perfect for every occasion, and they couldn’t be more correct. Brewed at Quartz Brewing, a microbrewery in Staffordshire, the beer uses floor malt as well as Perle and Hallertau Hersbrucker hop varieties, produced in a traditional way and brewed using the infusion method. The result is a hoppy, easily drinkable Beer that’s arrived just in time for the rest of the summer.
Green & Pleasant Golden Ale is available to purchase from green-and-pleasant.com.
