Sudden snow falls and freezing temperatures in April can only mean one thing - the Great British summer is just around the corner, and as such Dartmoor Brewery have created a new ale to mark the occasion.
Summer Gold is the latest addition to the range available from here at the Princetown based brewery, nestled in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, and comes fully loaded with a light citrus taste.
Reminiscent of our Dartmoor Gold, the Summer Gold is created with a blend of hop varieties including English hops, American Cascade and New Zealand Rakau to generate a truly unique taste.
This unique blend introduces zesty grapefruit flavours and tropical fruit and pine notes, coupled with a slight bitterness making it the perfect session beer.
The new addition is a refreshing session beer, with a 4.1% ABV, and sits nicely alongside the current range including Jail Ale, Legend and Dartmoor IPA.
Mike Lunney, head brewer at Dartmoor Brewery, said: “The new Summer Gold is a great beer, and is a firm favourite amongst the staff here at the brewery.
“The beer is both bold and refreshing, and is given such strong characteristics from really gorgeous hops, which we chose specifically due to their taste.
“There is so much variety in hops these days that you can create just the taste you want, and the hops we chose have helped us create a beer which will be a must-have for beer-garden drinking this summer.”
The new beer will be released on Monday, May 2, and will be available at a wide array of pubs across the country.
