Here’s an interesting one for the upcoming sunny weather – Dunham Massey’s Blossom Honey Beer. I love the idea of honey in a beer, but find it often fails to hit the mark, potentially thinning and drying out beer instead of enhancing it with lush, sweet honey-ness. One that I can wholeheartedly recommend is Saltaire’s Olympia – if you can find it (it’s a seasonal).

Dunham’s Honey Blossom Beer however, does work, and the addition of Duerr’s honey not only gives the beer a lovely smooth finish (which is quite unexpected from a spritzy, golden ale) alongside a mouthful of orange-citrus notes but also adds a floral, slightly wild-flower aroma to it. The head lasts a long time, and you can chill it slightly for the weekend’s heat-wave – or whilst watching England vs Germany, perhaps? Anyway, one to keep an eye out for if you’re in the market for something refreshing but slightly different, for sure.
