Enjoy a Can of New Spitfire Gold

Posted: 15th April 2016

Spitfire Gold, our new golden ale, is now available in a 500ml can (4.3% ABV).
Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale was first brewed 25 years ago to honour the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and last year, to mark 75 years since the historic air campaign, Shepherd Neame decided to commemorate the occasion with Spitfire Gold, a permanent addition to the range.
Spitfire Gold proved a huge hit with drinkers when it was launched on draught (4.1% ABV) in September, and was followed by a 500ml bottle (4.3% ABV) in December. To build upon that success, Spitfire Gold is now available in can nationwide.
The bright gold cans offer brilliant stand-out on shelf, with their instantly recognisable Spitfire logo.

A golden variant of Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale, Spitfire Gold has a smooth sweet malt base built upon with Challenger hops for bitterness. The well-balanced brew also incorporates Centennial and Saaz hops for aroma, with notes of tropical fruits, citrus and pine.
Head brewer Richard Frost said: “We have seen a fantastic reaction to Spitfire Gold since its launch last year, and are delighted to meet customer demand by now offering it in can.”
Spitfire Gold is currently available in can exclusively from Tesco stores nationwide.
