Trashy Blonde

12 oz single courtesy of James all the way from Scotland. many thanks.
Beer pours with an impressive rocky, white head which gives some super lace. Body is a slightly hazed, golden pour with mid to low carbonation – a smashing looking beer.
Nose gives some typical sweet malts abut also a little white peppery bitterness.
The beer drinks very dry with a lack of malt presence for a beer in the English pale Ale category. There is a very stout, Saaz-like, crisp bitterness which gives a little pepper, and given the relative lack of malt character, I might have even guessed the style of this beer to be that of a Pilsner. The finish mimics the style too, with more lingering bitterness, a dry aftertaste and more cracked grains.
