Mighty Blond (Mighty Hop)

Pours with a lovely bottle conditioned fizz, more golden amber than the bleached blonde you would expect from the bottle. Citrus and a rather dry herbal aroma.

The malt is on the dry side of balanced, beautifully pronounced. The middle has a smoky charcoal edge to it, presumably a characteristic of the yeast, very similar to the Purbeck beers. The final bittering is a lovely stamp of hops, lingering with noticeably grassy notes and hint of citrus.

7/10 A lovely beer, not the Blonde expected, but a classy golden brunette instead.
