A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #565 – Altitude – The Goldpanners Profit

The Goldpanners Profit.

Golden beer, golden voice, golden numbers and going for gold.

Clean, crisp lager. Perfect thirst quencher and oh so sessionable!

500 ml of a beer that is 4.6% ABV and 136 calories a serve size, so 1.81 standard drinks in this one, as well as a low 13 IBU things.

Brewed by Altitude Brewing Studio in the style that is  Golden Ale/Blond Ale and this all happens in the magnificent Queenstown, New Zealand

Named after the gold rush of the 1860s and the iconic first locals that settled Queenstown; the Goldpanners Profit is a brew we at Altitude are proud of.

Beer for an endless summer

Beer for an endless summer

Brewed like all our beers, with all New Zealand ingredients, the Goldpanners Profit is designed around a flavour packed, silky malt profile.

This gives the beer an honest, refreshing and characterful flavour with a very dry finish and velvety mouth-feel.

Pale gold in the glass, it has been subtly hopped to give a very light bitterness on the palate and a pleasing nose of summer fruits.

What could go wrong? Call me odd but I get some kind of passionfruit thing going on on the aroma, it’s quite sweet.

Definitely passion fruit. pale golden in the glass. No head to speak of.

Bitterness is light, and the finish is tangy, except the middle might be missing in action.

Goldpanners ProfitSo then, a refreshing if somewhat bitterness dominated slightly fruit based crisp golden beer.

Being fair though this does have a nice middle, it isn’t thin at all, the malt warm up and rounds off quite a nice drinking beer. But it’s nothing special. Sure it has a lovely aroma, and does warm into itself.

What you get then is a nice easy drinking beer that requires little attention or thought to drink, the bitterness is pleasant, and beer sweet enough to sip or quaff. Ideal really for sitting in the late summer sun and telling stories.

I’d be right at home in a beer garden with this for the duration. call me when dinner is ready.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7.5 a of its things from the thing.

The double dip review

  1. Am I enjoying it? It starts off a bit brash but warms into itself.
  2. Would I have another? I would, it ticks a few of the right boxes for having a few of
  3. Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? This should make a pleasing session ale, it’s not spectacular or difficult it is well behaved non intrusive and that sometimes is a good thing.

Riiight ….  The Bees,  (known in the United States as A Band of Bees) are an English band from Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Isle of Wight, couple of lapss of that to resolve the America’s Cup back in the day, and the are a bit of Indie rockPsychedelic rock and SKA thrown together.

This is “The Stand”


There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional “Canadian Ale”, an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs – a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up – very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
