UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 Pale orange/gold colour with no head to speak of. Light malt aroma, with a sweetish bready undertone and hints of cardboard. A smidgen of malt on the palate, but mainly dry hops, finishing bitter and peppery, with a metallic edge. Rather dull mouthfeel, with a soapy feeling lingering on the finish. Comes over like a cross between a bitter and a lager. Palatable enough and easy drinking, but no excitement here. I don’t really see what makes this a beer to specifically partner food, as the name and pitch seem to suggest. 660ml bottle (pasteurised) from Tesco as Beer To Dine For. BBE 31 Jan 2005.

Bottle. Didin’t know what to make of this, very sweet and boring. Smooth lagery flavour, green and melony, lemony flavour, a bit earthy i suppose, but its very boring. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2004

Pleasant but uninspiring.Slight malty flavour with some tininess which was worying as it was out of a bottle.It began to bore me after a bit in a rather inoffensive way.Not one I would try again. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2004
Golden colour with small head. Mellow, fruity and sweet, little hoppy. Pleasent

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 March 2004Pale amber. Metallic pale malt aroma. Suggestion of clove in flavour. Soft, laid back. Mild malt with mild bitterness. Chemical lavatory cleaner after-taste. A lager. [2.0]Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2004
Head to Head with Pilsner Urquell. Sweeter, more rounded and with bags more fruit. Dry enough to quench the thirst, and laid back enough to wash down a lunch. [2.7]
April, 2007 I got this under the new name of Hop. This is a pleasant enough dry lager with some interesting aromas. There is a fresh oak flavour, a little biscuit, and some delicate light fruit, faintly aromatic like melon. It’s refreshing, pleasant and quite drinkable. Not my favorite sort of beer - I prefer a little more body and sweetness - but it works well enough, and is one of the better British lagers on the market. [2.5]
Golden coloured. Hoppy aroma. The flavour is mild and soft. A refreshing brew. Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2004
A light amber beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet hoppy. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy. A very easily drinkable ale - no wonder Green King markets this beer as they do. It is an OK refreshing ale - but nothing special. RobBestwick (983) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2003
melon aroma, pours with a bronze hue and small head, crisp hoppy and fruity flavour, quite refreshing. Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2003
(660 ml Bottle) Poured a rich golden colour, very clear and bright with a loose head. Rich fruits in the aroma, but not in the taste, a very dry beer with a "fluffy" mouthfeel. The fruits come through in the finish though. Probably a good beer for accompanying a meal, as it says on the label.
