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.

Clear golden-amber with a head that settles thin and lacy. Nose has hints of fresh orange and caramel. Bitter-sweet with a dry hoppiness over a sweet malty and lightly fruity body.

Dear me this is getting a bit of a kicking but it’s actually pretty decent. Bottle from a farm shop in one of those Santa’s grotto, big fuck off garden centres. Clean lemony aroma with grass, sherbet, biscuit and sappy Germanic hop. Pleasant herbal and lemony hop with coriander and monkey nut suggestions. Generous concluding bitterness. Brilliant gold with a slender white lid. Yes there’s a hint of phosphorus but it puts hairs on your chest. Thoroughly decent and not shy on the hop front.

Ambery golden, aroma is sweetish malt. Taste is slightly sweet with good body for its strength, fairly crisp, good use more bitterness. I slightly prefer the Gardeners tipple one. Wahey! £1.49 at Lidl in Dorking---happy days!

Just some attributes from the tasting notes: sweet maltiness, some hops, very light bitter.
