COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Brewery conditioned (filtered)
A light and very refreshing golden ale, named after the many hop gardens that used to be found in the fields surrounding the brewery and throughout the Farnham Valley. Crafted with a fine blend of best English malted barley and fresh local Fuggles hops from one of the last hop farms in the area, Hop Garden Gold is a perfect balance of aroma and bitterness, with a slight hint of fruit and sweetness.

YognSpoon (3) - Sandringham, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2017 does not count
Aroma spicy and orange, yum. Copper and golden colour. Clear with white head that dissipates quickly. Malty driven but orange flavours and spice come through to a bitter finish. Medium body that is lightly carbonated. Good bitter.

olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
500ml bottle. Appearance is clear and amber/dark gold. Not much from the aroma but hops. Taste and overall score are high though as i found this so drinkable. Not too exciting for a bitter and not very complex but i thought it was great.

bateleur (206) - BETCHWORTH, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours golden with thin white head. Aroma malt: caramel and toffee, hops:floral with a hint of citrus (grapefruit?). Taste similar to aroma.

foxo82 (936) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber ale with a hoppy aroma with orange. Tastes on the sweeter side of bittersweet with banana. A bit watery but the finish is bitter enough to keep it interesting.

BlackHaddock (7960) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
500ml bottle BBD 30 Apr 2013: broached on 13 Apr 2013 and poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Orangey, pale amber body, clear and clean looking, the fast disappearing head was off-white before it left the building. Fairly sweet nose and taste: malty feel to it, more than the HOP name suggests anyway. Caramel and toffee notes in both the aroma and mouth. The hops come alive towards the end of each sip giving the beer a crisp bitter finish, a nice beer. The alcohol helps to give the bite at the end also.

planky84 (3514) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from ASDA. Honey coloured pour with a white head. Lemon, coriander and ginger aroma. Nutty-citrus flavour with a hint of vanilla. Bit of a fruit cocktail. Not bad.
