Growler Brewery Essex Border (4.8%)

Essex BorderI think I may have finally found a Growler (Nethergate) beer that I rather like.
Mind you, it doesn’t look much like the Blonde that it says it is.
Essex Border is a rich amber beer with a light bubbly head.
Its aroma is all lemons and honey.
There’s a decent caramel and crusty bread malt and a sprinkling of cracked black pepper.
The hops are snappy green pithy twigs and herbal foliage, and hiding right in the background as though it’s afraid to come out there’s a hint of all spice and lemon juice as noted on the label.
Sitting in the garden waiting for Sunday lunch Essex Border makes perfect sense.
