Previously known as The Beer To Dine For.
Brewed to complement food, we use the lightest malts and Tettnang hops to achieve the unique pale golden colour, crisp taste and dry finish. This unique blend makes Hop the ideal accompaniment to spicy dishes, seafood and poultry. The Tettnang hops, imported from Washington State and Oregon, give the beer its soft melon aroma and complete the dry finish.
Bottles have been sterile filtered since May 2006.

The lowest rating ever - poor Asger who brought this beer to a dinner. Felt sorry for the guy, so I had to drink it - good he didnt see the rating. Anyway the aroma is fruity. The flavor is a bit different, its fruity like the aroma, it reminds me of brooklyn lager, but of course not as good! Lets just say this is the last time I ever taste this beer.

A Mes rate: Bottle from whatever supermarket was doing the "buy this, send us your rate and we will refund your purchase" deal. Bought it, rated it (on here and on the postcard thing that came with the bottle) and it was crap. My rate has obviously been nuked during the change of name. Bollocks. So here it is again. Come on, youre really interested arent you?

clear gold, whispy white head, a unknown species of skunk sprayed into the clear bottle to give it a robust aroma to cover up the sweet malt and floral hops that can be roused upon request, sweet candy flavor with light but tasty (Tettnang) hops, light bitter finish

750ml Bottle 04/03/2007 Some carbonation. Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and slightly spicy. Smooth on the palate. A little dryness in a crisp malt finish.

Bottle from my trip through South Carolina. The aroma has some hops but mostly pale malt. The appearance is pale gold with a smaller head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall its rather unremarkable and not much of a beer by itself.

Not quite what I was hoping for. its got a mostly malt presence with very little hop aroma and taste. It taste clean yet has very little character.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Bottle pours golden with a short white head that stays briefly and leaves a bit of lace. Aromas of slight malts, some grassy hops a bit of skunk. Flavor is grain, a slight bit of citrus and some grass. A fair amount of carbonation gives this a fizzy mouthfeel. Fancy bottle.. Not so fancy of a beer. Kind of crappy actually

lagomswedish (213) - Ume, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2007
Comes in a bottle that looks like a butt plug, so my expectations werent very high. Pours a glowing golden colour, with faint citrus and flower aromas. Despite the name it delivered a disappointing hop bitterness that was short-lived. Rather thin, and I cant help feeling GK wimped out a bit on the IBUs with this one. If youre going to call a beer hops, then make damn sure it tastes of hops!
