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.

[From the archive, yay!] Fairly blonde, and lagerish (I know this sounds rather daft now) with a somewhat citrusy aroma. Now, where are those hops? At least it was called Beer to Dine For when I tried it but King Hop? Give me a break. Not bad, though.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2008
At the tasting session by Joes. A clear yellow colored beer, with a white head. It disaeppers quickly. The aroma of caramel and sweet malt. The taste sweet and fruity, citrus. It’s a little bitter. There are not many hops. The aftertaste has some sweetness.

A light beer with a grassy soapy aroma, a light malty flavour with fair amounts of hops and a rounded finish. Fresh and fine

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear golden-bronze colour with a fair white head; solid flowery hoppiness with notes of apples; medium to full-bodied; quite heavy mouthfeel, tart bitter finish with notes of alcohol - not really pleasant

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Bottle 0,75l bought at Tesco Kensington Feb. 08. Golden colored. A large creamy head settling in a couple of minutes - but never died. Strong sweet hoppy aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Subtle flavor of sweet fruits. Dry fruity aftertaste with some bitterness. KI=6

Looks like a deform dildo! Aroma of flowery hobs and perfume, flavor is also very perfumy with a mild malty sweetness.

Incredibly unattractive bottle all the way: Anyway, it pours clear gold with a off white head. Aroma has a sweet fruityness. The body is light watery & taste is basically dull & bland! No personality. Dont try this at home!

750ml bottle. Clear light golden color. Relatively hoppy for an English beer...The taste of finings dominates the aftertaste. Definitely drinkable and refreshing, but not exactly as fancy as the label insinuates.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2007
750 ml bottle. Moderate head with a nice lace. Straw color and a hoppy aroma. The flavour is mild with notes of hops, flower and light fruit. the finish has a light bitterness. It’s a refreshing, uncomplicated beer, that is easy to drink - actually quite nice, but not outstanding...
