Belgian Golden Ale

By   April 10, 2016

M&S Belgian AleThis is a M&S branded Belgian Golden Ale. The colour was fantastic and I expected much but unfortunately I was a little bit disappointing. It lacked the deep flavour I was waiting for and perhaps a body as well. On the bright side my girlfriend liked it because this ale is carbonated something that she often enjoys.

Readily available in the gluten free aisle at M&S for just £2 which is a bargain when you compare to brands like Mongozo.

Perhaps I was expecting too much from Mongozo Premium Pilsener, which is a product of the Huyghe Brewery in Belgium. The fact that it’s organic as well as gluten free was a very good selling point for me. However I found little taste in this one.

Granted that I don’t drink that many Pilseners nowadays but I would have preferred a bit more body and flavour. If you’d like to try it it’s not difficult to find it online for a decent price and it’s sold in Leeds at the Little Leeds Beer House. You can also drink it at the Leeds Belgrave for a not very cheap £5.

Update: as this beer is available on several pubs I ended up having quite often and I’m changing my mind about it. Perhaps it’s because the weather is warming up and it makes me more amicable to Pilsener but now I quite enjoy it.
