COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Previously known as The Beer To Dine For.
Brewed to complement food, we use the lightest malts and Tettnang hops to achieve the unique pale golden colour, crisp taste and dry finish. This unique blend makes Hop the ideal accompaniment to spicy dishes, seafood and poultry. The Tettnang hops, imported from Washington State and Oregon, give the beer its soft melon aroma and complete the dry finish.
Bottles have been sterile filtered since May 2006.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2004
Pleasant but uninspiring.Slight malty flavour with some tininess which was worying as it was out of a bottle.It began to bore me after a bit in a rather inoffensive way.Not one I would try again.

SilkTork (5231) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 March 2004Pale amber. Metallic pale malt aroma. Suggestion of clove in flavour. Soft, laid back. Mild malt with mild bitterness. Chemical lavatory cleaner after-taste. A lager. [2.0]
Head to Head with Pilsner Urquell. Sweeter, more rounded and with bags more fruit. Dry enough to quench the thirst, and laid back enough to wash down a lunch. [2.7]
April, 2007 I got this under the new name of Hop. This is a pleasant enough dry lager with some interesting aromas. There is a fresh oak flavour, a little biscuit, and some delicate light fruit, faintly aromatic like melon. It’s refreshing, pleasant and quite drinkable. Not my favorite sort of beer - I prefer a little more body and sweetness - but it works well enough, and is one of the better British lagers on the market. [2.5]

Golden coloured. Hoppy aroma. The flavour is mild and soft. A refreshing brew.

Ungstrup (29486) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2004
A light amber beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet hoppy. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy. A very easily drinkable ale - no wonder Green King markets this beer as they do. It is an OK refreshing ale - but nothing special.

melon aroma, pours with a bronze hue and small head, crisp hoppy and fruity flavour, quite refreshing.

Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2003
(660 ml Bottle) Poured a rich golden colour, very clear and bright with a loose head. Rich fruits in the aroma, but not in the taste, a very dry beer with a "fluffy" mouthfeel. The fruits come through in the finish though. Probably a good beer for accompanying a meal, as it says on the label.

Citrus and winey nose. Deep golen colour, yeasty flavour with citrus notes and a fine acidity topped with vanilla tones.

rauchbier (3617) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2003
Bottled. Gold colour, poor head and moderate condition. Initial sweet malty aroma with grassy hops and a touch of honey in a Bohemian pils stylee. Fruity and biscuity in the mouth with more honey lurking. Becomes dry and hop bitter in the finish with a lingering spiciness. Light in taste and the colour of crisps. That sounds better.
