Pirate Life Brewing
Pirate Life / Golden Era Records Golden Ale
Brewery: Pirate Life
Style: Golden Ale
Format: 355ml Can
Picture this: BrewDog brewery, the old one, the far North East coast of Scotland. 8pm. Its freezing cold and Jack and Red are arriving for one of their 12hr long night shifts. It's been pitch black for 4 hours. They haven't even seen daylight for a week or so. Time to take over from the day shift and work hard to get the night on track.
Have a few of cups of coffee, there is a tank to filter and beer to brew to replace it. It isn't easy to get gee'd up, especially when you just got a message from back home: a photo of your mates sipping froths at the beach. Almost broken for the night.
"What music do you want RedMan?" shouts Jack from the brewer's computer. "Better make it The Hoods, Skip" Red replies over the sound of the brewery.
The Hard Road is chosen. Recapturing The Vibe starts to play. Loud. The only way Jack knows.
The crowd cheers, a few strokes of the keys, 'are you ready for the Hilltop Hoods?', 'are you ready for the Hilltop Hoods?' 'Sayyy HILLTOP!' And the vibe is recaptured...
Fast forward 5 years and Jack and Red are 3 months into launching Pirate Life here in Adelaide, the home of the Hoods. An email pops up in the Inbox. It's from the manager of Golden Era Records: 'How would you like to brew a beer with the Hilltop Hoods and their Golden Era label mates?' An opportunity too good to pass up.
Here it is. The Pirate Life x Golden Era Golden Ale
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Good golden ale, easy to drink, hoppy and malty. Good session beer
Hoppy nose with hints of grain. Clean malty brew with bitter finish. Hops mask the dreaded signature golden style grain flavours. Ok for style.
Great taste, great price!
This beer has bags of flavour with a hoppy, dry finish. Very session-able.
Another great beer from Pirate Life
This is not your typical Golden Ale, it is big on hops and full of flavour. Definitely worth a shot.
Another beauty from pirate Life
Another fine brew from the Pirate Life Team, for an Australian beer tastes good enough to be NZ!
