MEDIA RELEASE: McLaren Vale’s EXP #007


Introducing EXP #007 Goldfinger Golden Ale

McLaren Vale Beer Company’s latest Experimental (EXP) brew is full of Enigma – an exciting, newly cultivated hop (and a fitting nod to the international man of mystery!).

Head Brewer Jeff Wright said the ‘Goldfinger’ Golden Ale is complex and sophisticated, not unlike Mr Bond himself.

“Goldfinger is all about citrus flavours and aromas, set against a background of subtle melon andspice,” Jeff said.

“Golden in the glass, expect a moreish lemon-inspired note of bitterness within this smooth and stylish brew. We’ve used Enigma hops, which are new from Hop Products Australia and offer a mysterious fruity character which mingles seductively with the international tang of the Japanese Sorachi Ace.

“The mouth feel is light to medium and well rounded, thanks to a bucket of Vienna malt and a couple of good handfuls of wheat.”

Gold Finger is the seventh EXP brew from McLaren Vale Beer Company, each of which are available for a limited time on tap only in selected venues.

The hotels with EXP #007 on tap this week are:

Melbourne – Robert Burns Hotel, Gertrude Hotel, Mr Burger & The Marvellous Brew, Brunswick

Mess Hall, Young & Jacksons

Sydney – The Dove & Olive, Union Hotel

Adelaide – Kings Hotel, Archer Hotel, Hotel Wright Street
