I picked up Bradfield Breweries Farmers Blonde in the excellent Red Deer which is one of the best Sheffield pubs. As Bradfield Brewery is just on the outskirts of Sheffield this is very much a local brew from the 16 year old brewery. Farmers Blonde is a 4% beer that pours a pretty clear, and very light amber blonde with a nice white head. It actually looks like a very nice, refreshing beer. The aroma is floral, with hints of citrus and summer fruits coming through. It smells like this could be quite a heavily hopped ale.
Farmers Blonde has a light and refreshing feel, and sure enough it's packed full of floral and citrus hops making for quite a thirst quenching offering. I have to say I had this beer on a reasonably cold October evening and I really think I'd have enjoyed it more in the summer. While the taste is pleasant enough it's not exactly ground breaking, and none of the flavours really dominate enough to give it an outstanding USP. If you fancy a refreshing blonde you could do worse than Bradfield's Farmers Blonde, but I think you could do better too. A decent, drinkable, but not exciting 7 out of 10.
