Tasted: Wold Gold Blonde Beer

Hoppy Gilmore
This Yorkshire blonde ale isn’t as sweet as its Belgian counterparts – but it’s got perfect balance. Light but full, and seriously refreshing.

The product
If the subjectivity of the human taste bud were ever in doubt, consider Wold Gold. This blonde continental style wheat beer was one of only three ales to net a 3 Star Gold at this year’s Great Taste Awards – that’s a serious accolade – but over at Ratebeer.com, where drinkers note down their scores and tasting notes, it steadfastly refuses to set the world on fire.

The verdict:
I think those reviewers are missing something. Where they’re tasting a thin, limp, middle-of-the-road beer, I’m finding impeccable balance. There’s sourdough on the nose, a touch more in the mouth, and a flash of white grape sweetness pulled immediately into check by a bite of short hops. It’s light, but that brief, restrained arc of flavours is perfectly calibrated. I’m with the Great Taste Awards on this one.
