look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

gold in color with an orange tinge to it. very clear. forms an enormous head that made me stop pouring a couple of times (reminds me of one of my homebrews).
floral, sweet honey aroma.
seriously smooth flavor and mouthfeel. great balance between the malt and hops with a nice bitterness to the finish.
very high drinkability on this one. another quality ale from grand ridge.
probably said this before, but im glad they are finally available here after reading the reviews from the guys up in melbourne. id have to say though, i just prefer the yarra valley to gippsland.

Vibrant golden orange clear colouring with good carbonation. Head is small and lacing zero.

Aroma is a great mixture of caramel & toffee with a good slice of tropical fruit thrown in. Almost a slight burnt character to it as well. Me likes!

Palate is strongly bitter on the back, with good roasty flavours up front and on the sides. Aftertaste is more creamy hop fruity flavour and is long and pleasant. Creamy texture adds an extra pleasure to this wonderful beer.

In my opin, the best Grand Ridge has to offer.

like most beers this baby, while still excellent, can be a bit more inconsistant in the bottle. can get a bit tooo bitter if its getting a bit long in the tooth. when its fresh it holds its form as one of the best beers going around in these parts. no wonder it won best victorian beer at the a.i.b.a last year.

Tried Gippy Gold at a restaurant one night. At first I thought, uh… this is a pretty full on beer, and switched to Coopers Sparkling Ale. Well after the Gippy Gold Coopers (good beer in itself) tasted like VB. I struggled to finish the Coopers and then switched back over to the Gippsland Gold for the rest of the night.

This beer certainly nails it. It has a fantastic full flavour, yet it is refreshing. I just don’t get tired of it. Well done Grand Ridge brewery.

My only problem with this beer is its label. I know the taste is what’s important, but I found the label to be too busy. It does not reflect the classiness of this excellent beer.

The bloke serving drinks at the restaurant said that they struggle to sell this beer. This is a sad reflection on the Australian beer-drinking public…

I will certainly buy it again, I am glad I live only foury k's from the brewery.
