As you can see, I didn't quite manage to get a full pint as there was a bit of sediment in the bottle, which is unusual for Badger ales but I think perhaps it had something to do with the peach. Peach? It's not a misprint, Golden Glory is a peachy beer! It's an absolutely glorious colour like melted toffee with a loose, thin creamy head.
The initail hoppy aroma gives way to the most amazing peach smell. Even if it didn't have peach on the neck label there is no mistaking this aroma. I admit I wasn't looking forward to tasting it but I was pleasantly surprised. The peach flavour is not overbearing at all, it's dry and slightly sweet at first with an unusual peach flavour lingering on the tongue. Despite the small head, it's very fizzy with hard bubbles full of flavour. Golden Glory is so very refreshing and perfect for a sunny day.
Much better than I thought, it's more likely Ale Be Seeing You Again than seeing the sun in North East England.
