White Brick Brewing Griffin Golden Ale

White Brick Brewing

Released January 25th, 2018

Griffin Golden Ale may be named after a suburb near White Brick Brewing, but this beer could just as easily associate with the mythological beast that shares its name – golden, hybrid, and majestic.

Golden because of the colour and the style, of course, shining a pale gold, almost lemon colour, with a fluffy white head. (Griffins usually have white heads, too! This comparison is going excellently.)

Hybrid because it smells strongly of sweet, sticky honey, which fills the nostrils and lifts the spirits… but then tastes distinctly of citrus. This is a single hop beer, with Mandarina Bavaria used for bittering, aroma and, finally, dry-hopping, and the mandarin and subtle lemon flavours are the main attraction. Don’t worry, though – that sweet honey aroma hasn’t lied to you, as the malt does bring some sweetness as a background flavour.

As for majestic… does this honey-mandarin goodness not seem like a king’s drink to you?
