COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Glott’s Hop is our strongest beer, and as it’s name implies is very hoppy. It’s brewed with Halcyon malt and Pioneer hops. It’s light, strong and full of flavour.

Snegurochka (341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2012
Pint, cask @Wetherspoons. First beer after our long journey from Tromsø to Manchester. Golden clear body, with sweet aroma of grass, honey and some hops. Quite anonymous, though. Better taste than aroma, dry hops, hay with a touch of grain. Pleasant start! The bartender wasn’t sure if this foreign girl knew what she was ordering, so he insisted on me trying it first and gave me a free sample. Nice:-)

Half, hand pulled at Wetherspoons (Manchester & County). Clear amber-gold, naked surface. Subdued aroma of grassy hops. Grass, resin and lemony hops to the taste buds. Semi-dry hopped ending. Refreshing after the long journey from Norway (Manchester, 04.07.2012).

Cask, gravity, at The Pig ’n’ Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire, in the Pig’s Winter Festival ’11. Copper gold. faint bran and cardboard aroma. rather thin watery taste with some leaf and nettle. Mid bitter finish. I was expecting more, and was disappointed.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Halloween Beer Festival, 2010. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a slight, white head. Straw and grass make up the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet, with some carmel and honey, followed by a delicate bitterness comprised of earth and more straw. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes a bit of sugar, along with more delicate hops. Very nice.

1. Cask Stillage at the Assembly Rooms, Tamworth 10/09/2005 Clear golden coloured and very hoppy with an orange fruit flavour. Lots of bitterness in a lasting finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield 17/08/2007 Hoppy pine aroma. Golden coloured and hoppy with some alcohol present. Crisp and bitter lasting finish.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2007
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Golden colour with a loose white head. Light grassy aroma. Quite restrained on the palate but its clean, fresh and fairly dry making for a decent thirst-quenching beer that drinks lighter than its ABV. Some tropical fruit nuances. Noticeably bitter finish. Quite impressive in a relatively understated way.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A hazy orange beer with a thin bubbly beige head. The aroma is sweet and lovley hoppy giving it notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of grapefruit - the body is a bit thin in the middle, but the end is sticky. Like a light hop soup.
