Pours a dark honey colour with a strong head (I will note that the ones I had were the normal sized cans and not the thin ones that they normally do, I note this as all the ones I opened of the Alchemy Golden Ale the beer started to flow out the top and wasted a reasonable amount of beer). The nose presents stone fruits, somewhat soapy and biscuit malt.
The beer had a really fine mouth feel which blended spicy and aromatic malt notes together really well. The creamy to spritzy palate carried to the finished with a low bitterness on the end. The length wasn’t the longest, but still a very reasonable beer.
All in all, The Australian Brewery Alchemy Golden Ale is another beer worth a try, although I will say I prefer the pale ale, the golden ale is worth a try.
