Brewed in the north of France by Brasseurs de Gayant, the Goudale is a top-fermented lager in line with the best craft beers produced in Northern France. These beers are aged before bottling longer than the average, allowing them to release even more complex aromas and flavours.

The Goudale pours a golden clear colour topped by an impressive and relatively long-lasting head. It challenges the nose with fruity and spicy aromas along with distinctive notes of yeast.
