The Exchange Brewery (ExB) is pleased to announce that its + Golden Ale is now available at LCBO stores. This craft beer is a Belgian Strong Golden Ale, fermented with the brewery’s house Belgian Ale yeast and aged in French oak barrels from Pearl Morissette Winery, with brettanomyces, for three months. The Exchange’s popular beer won a Gold Medal at the 2017 New York International Beer Competition.
Tasting Notes – Dry and easy drinking despite its complexity, the + Golden Ale blends together notes of pineapple, coconut and vanilla, complemented with layers of funk and subtle spices of pepper and clove. The brew is an excellent cross-over beer for wine drinkers, and pairs beautifully with flavourful cheeses and seafood, such as oysters and salmon.
Broad Appeal – The + Golden Ale is desired by both beer connoisseurs as well as the novice beer drinker. With a high ABV, its complexity and the use of brettanomyces makes it a favourite find among beer lovers.
«The + Golden Ale is dry and has a subtle hop profile which is appealing to both wine drinkers and those new to the craft beer space. » explains Robin Ridesic, Founder & CEO at The ExB. « The versatility of this beer makes it an interesting addition to LCBO shelves and we are confident it will be well received. »
Bottled in an elegant black 750ml Italian sparkling wine bottle, this beer is bottle-conditioned, resulting in a long shelf life and shelf stability (i.e, refrigeration is not required). It is a favourite among collectors who enjoy tasting the progression of the beer as it matures and develops with age.
