The word ‘blonde’ when associated with beer always makes me uneasy. I think of the fruity, heavy German lagers that don’t agree with me, so it was with some trepidation that I took my first swig of this blonde lager.
Sent to me by Vintage Roots, Hepworth Blonde Organic Lager contains only water, barley malt, hops and yeast. The Hallertau hopes supposedly give the beer a ‘floral’ note but thankfully, for me anyway, my taste buds didn’t notice it.
What I did notice was that it tasted great. I honestly didn’t expect it to. It has a lovely fresh and crisp bit to it and is really flavoursome. It was an unexpected treat.
Hepworth Blonde Organic Lager is available from Vintage Roots for £1.40 a bottle and is 5%.
