GRAND RIDGE GIPPSLAND GOLD

Grand Ridge Gippsland Gold. Grand Ridge brews a broad range of beers but none of them have really grabbed me.

I’ve tried their beers at bottleshop tastings and beer festivals and I’ve always found them to be pretty average.

They take great pride in announcing they have won over 160 Australian and International beer awards and claim to be the world’s most awarded brewery. I received their gift pack as a present, though, which gave me the opportunity to revisit six of their beers.

Gippsland Gold is a 5.4% ABV Australian style bitter hopped with Aussie and Kiwi hops.  Like other Grand Ridge beers the label is suitability confusing calling it a pale ale despite describing it as an Australian style bitter on their website.

Weird orangy/yellow colour with poor head retention. Malt extract aroma. Watery mouthfeel with relatively low carbonation. Generic malt extract flavour followed by a bit of dirt which leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Probably something the English would enjoy.
