Hawkshead Brewery Windermere Pale (4%)

Widermere PaleHawkshead are very good at getting as many hops as possible into their beer, and Windermere Pale is no exception.
A light hay bale and honey malt is beaten into submission by massive hops.
They’re tart, zingy, fresh, packed with lemon and grapefruit – and you can forget pith and zest and the like, this is entire fruits – and ringed with jelly sweets and sherbet.
The smell is a pungent, a farmyard-y damp straw and caramel.
Windermere Pale is another great choice for this year’s Great British Beer Hunt by the chaps at Sainsburys.
