COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

fonefan (49520) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle. Yellow color with small white head. Light hoppy aroma with notes of caramel. Grassy hops in taste. Rather thin and watery.

Ungstrup (37861) - 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.

2.1
joergen (28377) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a small fast disappearing head. Aroma of malts, butter, caramel and spices. Strange flavour of butter, malts and caramel with notes of spices. Hoppy finish.

omhper (25243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour. Aroma of caramel and grass. Sweet and somewhat thin with clean mouthfeel and low-medium bitterness. A boring beer with an industrial feel to it.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 66 cl) Beautiful amber-coloured, pretty much without head. Strongly hoppy nose, and hop-aromatic all the way through without being bitter. More sweet actually. The label claims this beer tastes like melon - well, maybe so... 140604

Warning! Early amateur rating! Well flavoured lager. Very moderate carbonation so would indeed be good with some nosebag. No bitterness. Decent lager.

Leighton (21458) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear, hay-gold with a light, white head. Wet hop and grainy malt aroma. Lightly sweet with some crisp sugar and bread, along with straw-like bitterness. Light in body with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and dry, with light malts and some faint, grassy hops, along with a slight tart note. Not that bad.

harrisoni (18800) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2006
66cl bottle from Franglais, Calais. I just couldn’t put myself out enough to buy this in England where it would have been more expensive. So on my last visit to Calais, I popped it into the trolley, not expecting any great shakes. It is a pale gold colour with a thick white head. Peppery hop and lemon citrus aroma. Bit of herb. Smooth in mouth, like lemon sorbet and then a good hop finish. Best drunk chilled I feel, a bit like a lager. This for me is the nicest Greene King beer that I’ve had. Very refreshing on a Sunday afternoon of 30 degrees plus. Well balanced. It won over my indifference. Not sure why you would have it with food though any more than any other beer.

saxo (18738) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2006
Bottle. Not much head with shortish duration. Golden colored. Taste is kinda like a lager. Low carbonation.

FatPhil (16345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 500ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
6 Anna gets diacetyl, but I don’t. I get a touch of sulfur. It’s kinda Innis and Gunny. Yeah, OK, that means I get diacetyl.
2 Mid orange, and a small head. Worth 3, but only getting 2 as it came in a clear glass bottle.
6- Sweet smooth malty taste. Simple. Some charredness to the roast.
4- Simple pleasantly bitter, some roastiness too. Hops last for a long time, but heads toward paperiness later.
12+ Damn, this is so easy to drink and not lacking in flavour. It also covers 5% well. Being Greede Kerching, I would happily have trashed this, but they actually put something drinkable together for a change. Thank you USA for sending GK some decent hops!
