Steamrail Brewing Company – Golden Ale – The Gold Digger (AUS)

I picked this one up on special in Liquorland, not having seen it before. I have to say I was a little suspicious upon reading the label as there was no website address. Most breweries will want to promote their wares and tell the story of their brews, but not this one. Check out Brewnews for the full story.

Golden Ales should really be golden in colour whereas this is a pale straw. It’s hopped like a pale ale and is quite fruity. Not unpleasant, it lacks the character that comes with a real craft brew. Better than most of the rubbish you find in Liquorland but all in all, a bit of a fraud.
