Tasting Notes:
Following up on the 2013 Gold Brew collaboration with the CGC Group, Suntory has again released a new genre brew for 2014 called Suntory Grand Gold. The previous new genre brew was pretty solid, so it’s time to see if Suntory brang the good stuff.

Grand Gold pours out a nice golden color. You can smell the hops coming off the head. It’s very rich up front, while the flavors dissipate mid-palate, ending with lots of effervescence and bitterness on the back. There’s a slight metallic tinge that lingers on the palate.

All-in-all, Suntory has a worthy new genre brew in Grand Gold. This brew has enough flavor to keep things interesting, without any off-putting sweetness. My only complaint would be the metallic aftertaste. Give it a try.
