The Story of Guinness® Golden Ale

Named after its distinctive golden colour, Guinness Golden Ale is brewed using Guinness yeast, Irish Barley, the finest hops, and a specially selected amber malt that gives the beer its rich golden hue. The subtle biscuit flavours from the malted barley perfectly compliment the crisp bitterness and delicate hop aroma, giving way to a refreshingly clean finish.  

Ale might seem like an entirely new addition to the Guinness family, however before Arthur Guinness made the decision to focus solely on brewing porter, he was brewing traditional ales.

“I’m really proud to have created a great new beer that is worthy of the Guinness name.”

Peter Simpson - Guinness Brewer

This modern-day ale was created by brewer Peter Simpson. He talks about the inspiration behind Guinness Golden Ale “My ambition was to create a beautifully balanced ale from Guinness that would appeal to a broad range of people. This golden ale from Guinness is a bold new step and I’m really proud to have created a great new beer that is worthy of the Guinness name.”
