Tasting Summary

Elgood's Golden Newt

4.10% ABV.

A pale session biter. The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used to bring the delicate hop flavours and aroma to the fore. Pale Maris Otter malt has been bleded with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour.

We have tried this beer 19 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Good to Excellent.
