CO-OP Truly Irresistible Gold Miner Ale has been included in a new book that lists the world's 300 greatest beers.
Highly regarded real ale writer Roger Protz has tried beers from all over the globe whilst carrying out research for his book, 300 Beers To Try Before You Die (CAMRA Publications).
Mr Protz describes the Co-op's Gold Miner Ale as having "a tart and tangy bouquet of fresh orange peel, earthy hop resins and lightly-toasted grain".
The Goldminer Ale is made exclusively for the Co-op by the Freeminer Brewery in Gloucestershire. The brewery itself is described by Mr Protz as being "one of the most successful and long-established of Britain's new wave of micro-breweries".
John Hagan, category buyer for beer at the Co-operative Group, said: "We are delighted that the Gold Miner Ale has been included in Mr Protz's book. The bottle-fermented beer really is a special find and a great treat for any discerning ale enthusiast".
Co-op Truly Irresistible Gold Miner Ale 500ml 5% AbV is priced at £ 1.69.
