Doesn’t have much length. A bit like me. Doesn’t work it brilliantly, a bit like me. All mouth no action? Well, once the aim has been achieved who cares? Not sure the aim was achieved here, doesn’t last but is pleasant enough.

I’ve never been to a hop. Unlikely to I guess. I don’t even know what one is, winter or otherwise. So I can only use this beer as in indicator as to what to expect. Quite a bitter experience, a little refreshing and yes, a bit of hop.
