In 1992, Malt 'n' Hops was the first harvest beer produced using undried hops and was unique to Wadworth. Since then, the idea has spawned many imitators. Unkilned green hops used within hours of picking impart a surge of cleansing orange zest flavours and refreshing bitterness which balances the malt-sweet palate of this pale harvest ale.
Malt 'n' Hops uses exclusively Goldings hops, harvest-fresh from the farm with bitterness units of 30-35 depending on the harvest. 98.5% pale ale malt and just 1.5% of crystal malt give the beer a pale golden colour with a rating of 15.

On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Auburn body, thick lasting white head. Thin tinny nose, a bit of sweet citrus here and there, but nothing that really shines. Taste is equally bland. Not one to remember.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Turf Tavern Oxford. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A sweetish malty beer with house yeast. The sweet fruitiness gives it a decent character. There is a banana note too. Better than expected from Wadworth.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011
Cask, Star & Garter, Leicester. Golden with a firm bright white head. Aromas are stewed apple, cabbage and plastic with cream and some green apple. Lightly woody with hints of faeces. Flavours are dry biscuit malts with sweet and sour citrus. Horrible bitterness on the finish with a plastic aftertaste. Very unbalanced despite the beer name.

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Old Shades, London</i>
Hazy copper color; compact head. There is some malt, more noticeable at the end, but the hop qualities are rather missing; refreshing Golden Ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2007
Cask at Bedford Arms Speciality Beer House, Bedford. Dark gold. A whiff of sulphur in the aroma followed by a pleasant pineapple note. Fruitypear taste with background malts. A hint of saltiness, I thought. Low bitterness. Quite like it.

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 22, 2007
cask @ The Prince of Wales, Shrivenham. Vibrant orange in colour, with well focused aromas of crusty bread, and mild citrus. Well balanced flavors or focused British pale malts, hay, and orange marmalade. Medium bodied with a long dry finish. Very fresh tasting. Yummy!
