COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 8, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - cloudy dark amber-orange colour with a solid but chaotic beige foam; unclean nose, fairly hoppy aroma with notes of flowers, cream and hints of fruits in the background; rounded and full-bodied; solidly bitter; very long flowery hoppy finish, quite dry - a solid and straightforward brew

Newer label. green foil. Buttery and not hoppy. This one is pretty crappy. The bottling date is indecipherable.

madsberg (11613) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Herbs and pine in the aroma. light fruits and spice notable. Fruits, loads of pine, some flowery notes, spice and sweetness in flavour. Medium bodied. Dry. Has a nice balanced bitterness in the end. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Could easily be a regular in my fridge.

Sammy (11511) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
SIgnificant grapefruit C hop aroma, quick fading head, lots of lace. Bitter like an ESB dying but very drinkable on a scorching Saturday. Drying aftertaste, tasty complex bitterness,like the hops, citrus, well malted, well carbonated. Some of the fresh homebrewed taste from this sub-style.
