As the name suggests, we’ve used just one variety of hop in this pale golden ale. Brewed with just low colour Maris Otter malt and a little wheat for head retention, we’ve selected some of the more “interesting” hops that we haven’t used before and added several bucket loads to each brew. Currently we’re using Sovereign hops, a relatively new English variety, similar in many ways to Fuggles and Goldings. Expect a spicy, slightly grassy finish.
