7&i Holding has hit up Suntory a couple times in the past, and they chose them again to produce some liquid goodness for their premium brand 7-Gold. Let’s see what this premium in-house beer is all about!
The Gold Class pours out with a nice head, and a nice golden color in the glass. Taking the first gulp of foam and beer, the malt flavor is apparent. On the tongue The Gold Class is very silky, it’s got a nice tang to it and finishes with a toned down bitterness, which feels “just right.” In the full bodied flavor you’ll also find some fruitiness, and a little sweetness as well.
This first premium beer for the Seven&i Gold line is very nice. Suntory has done well to produce a beer that grabs a hold of your palate and presents a well rounded drink. If you’re looking for a beer with a little kick, The Gold Class will satisfy.
