A refreshing and light golden ale with a soft bitterness.
A hoppy summer favourite.
Featuring a Greek Olympic torch in homage to the Olympic Games. Created by local Lewes artist, Malcolm Trollope-Davis.
First produced in 2005 to celebrate our major summer award at Kensington Olympia for Best Bitter. It became an instant hit.
Olympia Golden Ale is a very refreshing summer ale with a balanced complexity. Especially appreciated when served at 11 degrees Celsius.
Oh golden Olympia old friend how I have missed you.
In the final of MasterChef I wanted to put together a chocolate dessert with a rich ice cream that would soften the bitter chocolate. The golden ale ice cream came to life and it was a real winner. I tried several golden ales but the Olympia had a burst of summer and when I popped the cap there was a distinct hit with of pineapple, grapefruit and even a touch of bubblegum.
Served chilled this is a versatile easy drinking ale that pairs with rich desserts but also just as well as fresh shellfish and Mediterranean food such as saffron rich Paella. It's also great with spicy foods and is extremely quaffable. A great beer.
