First Gold is named after a characteristic type of hops, which gives this new Semper Ardens a fresh spicy aroma marked by dry apricot and notes of light smokyness. The flavour finishes with a intense bitterness caused by the big dosage of hops, which is elegantly balanced by the burtonised brewwater - water with the same salt and mineral composition as in the English Burton-on-Trent. The beer is brewed on English ale malt from Lothian & Borders at the border of England and Scotland. Together with a touch of caramel malts this gives First Gold a light nutty brown colour and a touch of nuts, which harmonize with the melonish fruitflavour. Enjoy the beer at 6 - 8 degree Celcius.

    (700 ml bottle, bought in Denmark). Good to moderate head, deep golden colour. Nice floral and fruity aroma, tones of butterscotch and mild spices. Tastes like a very strong English bitter, the hoppy bitterness in the finish is there, but "intense" is not the word I’d use. The Semper Ardens Winter Rye is more like an IPA than this one. Decent enough, but there are better beers around.
