Our flagship blonde beer is a fresh & naturally brewed lager with a special ingredient, honey. We’re really proud that it won the European Beer Star Gold medal in 2018 and we’re about to tell you why. We use honey as an ingredient, rather than as an additive or sweetener. This means that much of the natural honey sugar is fermented out so only the aroma and flavour remain, (the same way that the barley sugars are used in brewing). This innovative use of honey in the brew means our blonde beer has a fantastic velvety mouthfeel while also being quite dry on the finish, making it really moreish. It took 6 trial brews to test this theory of fermentation out and get the right balance of our ingredients together. Using a lager yeast means the beer is clean and the flavours can really mesh and mature together. We use our blend of urban and rural honeys in this brew in the way you might use hops for aroma or bitterness in other styles and our UK cascade hop, brings some citrus to the nose without overpowering the delicate honey esters as well as complementing the urban honey lemony aftertaste.
