Wylam Brewery Ltd. The Blaydon Races (3.9%)

The Blaydon RacesI’m not altogether sure what I make of this.
It’s not bad as such, it’s just a bit nondescript.
The labels tells me that Blaydon Races is a rich Golden Bitter, but it’s more like a fruity Golden Ale.
The malting is soft and sweet with light caramel and some brown bread, a pinch of salt and a hint of spice.
The hops are lacking any punch, just about holding up with a little hedgerow spikiness and a lick of apple juice.
Perfectly drinkable, Blaydon Races is just a bit uninspiring.
