Gold Bar has 20 types of craft beer from Austria & Germany and they are the sole distributor in Malaysia.
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and what it meas? Alot of gathering with friends. Recently, I have discover a new bar which is not too far from my work place is Gold Bar that is located inside this new building – Tropicana Avenue. They are not your typical bar as they serve full craft beer from Germany and Austria. They do have a few from the taps too.
Besides that, they have some nice selection of wine too.
For their fresh taps of the day, it is written on the chalkboard and price is very reasonable too. Now this triggers me, this bar would be a great place for Oktoberfest!
Other beers selection for you.
The space is huge and quite spacious.
Food choices are decent as since this is more like a beer joint, their beer selection is bigger. If you are not too sure which beer to pair with your food, they have a little guideline at the bottom as our reference.
To test out some of the draft, ordered their *Beer Flight (Gusswerk BlackSheep Stout, Gusswerk Oktoberguss, Camba Imperial IPA). It is best to drink from left to right as Camba IPA is strongest in the three of them.
Black Sheep Stout. It is a “smooth stout” in the mouth. Fruity flavours dominate up front, andit moves into a rich chocolate malt and finishes with a very dry burnt
Oktoberguss. It is a Oktoberfest beer, medium bodied, clear deep golden body, amber tones.Aromas are malts, grass, meadow, different pale malts, dust, wood. Taste ofhops, peels, herbal malts, grains, bitter – leading to a half dry herbalfinish
Imperial IPA . Distinct hoppy aroma, fruity with fresh lime note, intensive hop bitternesson a mighty malt body, best paired with meats.
WeissBier (HBTS – the simplified name for the brand, Hofbrauhaus Traunstein). This Wheat Beer has been brewed since the establishment of the Hofbräuhaus. Traunstein in 1612. It comes with the strength and properties of the own cultured yeast and is wonderfully refreshing with its fruity flavour.
WeissBier Dunkel (Wieninger) – This Dark Wheat Beer is using a special dark malt. It is full-bodied andcomes with a light malty aroma with a unobtrusive yeast flavour.
Nicobar IPA (Gusswerk). This Indian Pale Ale smells impressive, a very special blend of fresh hopflower and malt aromas rise up the nose.Sweet aromas such as cherry, pastryand spicy aromas are combined. During the finish, the hops come out welland envelop the palate with a particular bitterness and tinge.
Camba Amber Ale. This full bodied amber ale has fragrance of ripe cherries and wild berries with a tender honey-caramel note, also having some smooth hop bitterness.
Sparkling Lemonade is actually quite interesting. It is not in the menu. Order it when you stumble any other articles that you have read
Just in for beers and need some much? then Gold Bar Platter is one of the platter you can consider. Serve with Cripsy Pork Belly, Roasted Slice Duck & BBQ Pork shoulder @ RM 34. Do dip with the sauces and drink a sip with our beer. Pairs pretty well, especially the top chilli sauce.
Bite size Pork Slider is a must order in this bar. Love the marination and the meat cook to perfection. Bun is nice and fluffy with its own dressing that makes is flavourful.
Scallops with Shell (6 pieces) @ RM 30. For the price and the scallop size that they are serving, it is indeed very reasonable. Worth to give it a try.
Thai Pork Neck @ RM 14. Strong and fragrant dressing, as the meat just lack of taste.
BBQ Pork Ribs @ RM 50 and Standing Chic – vertical roasted almond Flakes Chicken @ RM 32
Love the beer selection in this bar and definitely will come back for drinks again. My beer preference is still with WeissBier series as they are lighter and more fragrant with mild sweater end as for IPA or Indian they are stronger in taste.
