I like blondes

This beer is brewed for Sainsburys by the excellent Oxfordshire brewery Wychwood. Sadly it is not bottle-conditioned, but is a completely drinkable brew, nonetheless.

Goldwing English Blonde Beer, 5.5%

A lovely nose of lemon fruit and a good hoppy character. It smells quite rich, presumably because of the high-ish alcohol for a blonde beer. There is good weight to the palate, and the lemon fruit tastes very ripe, but it is pleasingly bitter and has a refreshing acidity that makes it extremely quaffable. A pint or two of this would slip down a treat.
