If you could order them at the bar; why would you order anything else? This sparkling ale pours golden yellow with a refreshing botanical aroma. Cascade hops and gooseberries invigorate and revitalize the pallet.

Tasting Notes


Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.

Straw Yellow, Golden

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Malty, Fruity, Citrus, Elderflower, Honey

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

Sweet Malt, Herbal, Elderflower, Dry, Bitter, Hops, Citrus

Brew Sheet

Golden Ale

Brewer's Lingo


ABV stands for Alcohol By Volume. It is a standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage.

IBUs ?

Brewer's Lingo


IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

OG ?

OG stands for Original Gravity.

From the drinkers of Good Times

The best Pale/Golden Ale available. Utterly gorgeous.

– Andy

Good Times is a superbly smooth flavoursome beer, the elderflowers give a really nice aftertaste with no bitterness at all, hold on - this has made me want to nip and pour one now from my stock in the cupboard!

– Sandy Reid

Good Times is my favourite Williams Bros brew. Good Times is beautifully refreshing golden ale beer. The hints of elderflower in the brew give it a distinctive but not overpowering herbal aromatic flavour.
