Windswept’s Blonde is a decent if slightly weird beer.
Pouring a pale gold, the aroma is an odd blend of peaches and fag ash.
Not in a particularly unpleasant way, it’s all rather fresh smelling, but that’s what it smells of.
The malting is crumbly rich tea biscuits, toffee and still more ashtray, and the hops are sharp and bitter, giving you lemons and herbal hedgerow, tea, tobacco and the slightest hint of fennel.
But the cigarette thing loiters all over the beer and yet doesn’t seem to spoil it, and as I reach the crisp dry climax, I quite fancy another one.
