COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Pale, delicately fruity and refreshing. Hooky Gold is a beer which marries English tradition with American pizzazz. It is the first of our beers to use an American hop variety, Willamette, grown in Oregon, and having moderate bitterness with a spicy, noble hop aroma.

Lovely session beer that you could drink all day. Great sweet, malty flavour and fruity aroma, perhaps from the American hops

superflyguy (435) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2011
pours a light golden colour with minimal head. reasonable amount of hoppines (citrus, grass and floral n small amounts.) Tastes very refreshing, not too much of anything but i did find the finish quite bitter. a good beer for a sunny afternoon.

DutchDrebus (5562) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2011
Nice yellow to golden colour, hence the name i guess. Smells like pilsener malts. Tastes like a bitter pilsener. Quite dry, active and bitter.
