South African Breweries Miller Carlton & United Breweries Crown Golden Ale. Brewed with only the most Premium® malts and the most Premium® water and the most Premium® hops. Everything in this can is proudly Australia’s Finest®.
This beer retains the Signature® ingredients of the equally snappily named South African Breweries Miller Carlton & United Breweries Crown Lager. And it tastes like it. The big difference is the addition of the “on-trend”* floral/citrus aromas from the addition of Galaxy hops. Taking a big whiff of this beer gives the lasting impression that this ale contains Galaxy hops in the same way that dying horribly contains some joy or Andrew Bolt contains some human DNA.
Highfalutin business class flyers, dads desperate to connect with their children and those who received a can for free.
You’re flying home from a high powered business meeting in Sydney in seat 1A and you need something to wash down the arancini balls with the tomato and zucchini relish.
Your boss once heard that you’re pretty keen on those beers with the fruity labels he usually bypasses on the way to the wine fridge. So he brought in a 6 pack to Dianne’s 25 years of service afternoon tea on Tuesday before cornering you to talk about courageous conversations.
Like a Modern Prometheus, Crown Golden Ale is likened to Frankenstein’s Monster. A hideous behemoth that will murder William, Clerval and Elizabeth to seek vengeance for Victor’s refusal to make him a mate and for his own piteous existence.
So before South African Breweries Miller Carlton & United Breweries die exhausted and heartbroken on a ship in the Arctic Circle while pursuing the Golden Ale, make sure to stand with Captain Walton and have one final drink from a tankard as the monstrous yet strangely human Golden Ale drifts off on an ice raft with the pledge to throw himself on his own funeral pyre.
