Gold with a white head. Hop and fruit in the aroma. Taste has grapefruit and nettles and a mid bitter finish. Plus a hint of alcohol at the back of the throat that I didn’t particularly like. Different but not entirely satisfactory. OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2008
Bottle, Pours a light gold with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is totally dominated by a huge dirty butterscotch character with a hint of grassy hops. On the palate the butterscotch is joined by a smoky note, a hint of sourness and a late bitterness. Diacetyl bomb. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - APR 21, 2008

Cask at the Leicester Beer Festival. This was my second cask lager of the night, and although it’s enjoyable, I still favour blonde ales. HopRocker has a good pale golden colour and an aroma of grass and hops. The flavour has some earthy qualities but is dominated by fruit, especially grapefruit or orange hop notes. Very good for a lager, which is far from being my favourite beer style.
