COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Brewery conditioned (filtered)
A light and very refreshing golden ale, named after the many hop gardens that used to be found in the fields surrounding the brewery and throughout the Farnham Valley. Crafted with a fine blend of best English malted barley and fresh local Fuggles hops from one of the last hop farms in the area, Hop Garden Gold is a perfect balance of aroma and bitterness, with a slight hint of fruit and sweetness.

Bottle. Bronze and clear. Slightly hoppy but nothing else really going on. Inoffensive and easy to ignore.

See: Golden yellow. Half finger white head. Smell: Subtle, fruity grassy aroma. Taste: Citrus upfront which merges into a malty base and ends with bitter hops. Sweetness persists as you drink on. Pallet: Light body, short finish. Fairly dry. Refreshing golden pale ale. Very nice on a hot day.

RexTalionis (2370) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear copper in color with a small head. Malty notes, hay, bit of butter and fruity notes in aroma. Grains in taste, bit of caramel sweetness too and perhaps some honey too. Slightly dry and bitter finish.

Beerheart65 (978) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Hazy golden, little sparkling, not much head. Caramel, nuts, butter. Light body, mild carbonation, dry, slight bitterness, caramel malty long finish. Nice malting, too light body, easy to drink.

500 ml bottle. Clear dark golden colour, thin white head. Sweetish caramel malty aroma, fruity and mild hoppy notes. The flavour is malty, with caramel and fruitiness, and some metallic notes. Grassy-hoppy finish. Nothing special.

mile (2892) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and floral fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and bread, light floral fruitiness. Finish is short average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and faint bread, light floral fruitiness, faint metal and light hoppyness. Bitter with caramel and floral fruitiness. Not for me.
