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.

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.
