Dark Star: Hylder Blond (England: Golden Ale: 4.2% ABV)

Visual: Hazy amber fold with a rim of light bubbles.

Nose: Light dusty hops, smooth but with a dash of wheat grain Light glucose sweetness. Grapefruit and elderberry.

Body: Grapefruit that’s slowly growing throughout the pint. Light wheat grain. Medium hops. Slight custard sweetness and sharp sour touch.

Finish: More grapefruit that hovers in the air, hops but with only slight bitterness. Toffee.

Conclusion: Normally I would be giving this beer a rave review, it’s a refreshing mix of elderberry. grapefruit and hops, not complex but flavoursome.

Today it finds itself being tasted directly after two stonking beers of a similar take and tasty as it is it cant compete, and I cant help but view it different in light of that..

Stull don’t let that put you off, A grapefruit refresher done well is usually worth a try against most things on tap.
