Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/07/2015

Appearance

(sample best before end Dec/15) Clear, pale golden amber with a quickly diminishing white head.

Aroma

Sweetcorn and straw with honeysuckle blossom and faint lemon zest.

Taste

More hops than the nose might suggest with mild piney bitterness adding bite to a clean, light-bodied palate with crusty white baguette and lemony notes.

Aftertaste

Buttery white baguette with very mild hop bitterness and mild lingering lemon.

Overall

Brewed by Shepherd Neame this blonde is stereo-typically dumb, being presented in a clear bottle. However, while a tad on the bland side it is clean with crusty white baguette, lemon and mild piney bitterness. The clear bottle stops us awarding a 'recommended' score.
