Renamed from Heligan Honey in February 2016 as part of general rebranding.
Hops ‘n’ Honey’s charming look comes from the pen of Rose Forshall.
A light refreshing bitter, pale amber in colour with distinct hoppy overtones and the subtle addition of real Cornish honey.

madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
April 2008. Smooth ale with a tart hoppy bitterness. Very faint honey on the finish. Well joined up.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2009
A flat watery brown looking brew. Unappetising. Quite hoppy on the nose, in a very english way. Some cereals here too, dusty straw. The honey addition is nice, like a sweet granola. The flavours here are quite nice and delicate but the texture really lets this down. It is kind of tomato flavoured, slightly herbal. So flat and watery, boring and gross. This is a big let down.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle (in NZ), poured a dirty amber with a thin bubbly head. Caramal malt on the nose, with hints of clover honey. A smooth palate, the honey come through a lot stronger in the flavour. The finish brings moderate bitterness. Drinks pretty well.

joe19612 (3002) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2009
Cask at Farnham beerex 2009. Pours a golden amber colour. The beer has a slight bitter taste with the honey. Have had better beers with honey.

berkshirejohn (6588) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2009
Cask at the Alexandra, Derby. Amber with a dense off-white head; a fairly basic bitter, but pleasant enough and not too sweet.

bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Late rating from Spoons spring festival. Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Hazy gold with thin thin white head. A pretty ordinary bitter with harg to detect honey notes. Refreshing.

wheresthepath (2352) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
[cask at Back of Beyond, Reading] Sweet honey dominates the foretaste, a very ordinary bitter comes through afterwards. Very smooth & easy drinking, yet a little on the bland side. Good balance of sweet and bitter despite the honey.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2008
Cask in the counting house. Aroma is honey and pale malts. Taste is similar quite sweet and honey pale malts dominate though the loural hop is tasty.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2008
Cask conditioned - handpump - Last Plantaganet, Leicester. A slightly hazy dark gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma is mostly hoppy with just a trace of honey. The taste is the same. There are hints of sharp oranges and again just the slightest honey note. Definitely a golden ale with hints of honey rather than a honey beer.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2008
This is another completely funny label from Skinner! The brew is dark amber with a nice, white head. The aroma has notes of honey, malt and hops and the flavour is delicious with notes of honey, malt, caramel, fruit and hops, fruit and a nice moderate bitterness. Not a piece of art, just a charming, uncomplicated ale, that is very easy to drink.
