Goodens Gold is a unique blend of some of Hampshire’s finest low colour and lightly caramelised malted barley with a selection of British and North American hops. With notes of grassy pine and citrus with a lingering aftertaste, this classic “Golden Ale” has a good level of bitterness and flavour to balance the gravity. The multi award winning Goodens Gold is named after Godwins who farmed the Flower Pots land in the early 19th Century and who famously produced the first Flower Pot pint of ale.
Our very own brew with an excellent balance of sweetness and bitterness that combines with a subtle hop character. Available in cask only, this is a distinctive beer with a full and satisfying finish. 3.9% ABV
