This is the pasteurised bottle, there is another entry for cask.
In 1992, Malt 'n' Hops was the first harvest beer produced using undried hops and was unique to Wadworth. Since then, the idea has spawned many imitators. Unkilned green hops used within hours of picking impart a surge of cleansing orange zest flavours and refreshing bitterness which balances the malt-sweet palate of this pale harvest ale.
Malt 'n' Hops uses exclusively Goldings hops, harvest-fresh from the farm with bitterness units of 30-35 depending on the harvest. 98.5% pale ale malt and just 1.5% of crystal malt give the beer a pale golden colour with a rating of 15.

4.5% amber colour with a thin head, malt and hops aroma, zesty cirus caramel and mixed fruits taste.

rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Cleethorpes. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Gentle earthy hop notes and a hint of oxidation in the nose, gentle toffee sweetness in the mouth with a balancing herbal hoppiness, brief fruity malt in the finish

blankboy (7884) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle (500ml). Pours a clear, very bubbly golden-orange with an average size fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy along with some light hops. Somewhat mild and sweet flavour of grainy malt and light hops with an average bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s fine, an O.K. beer.

will1 (141) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2010
Bottled from Wadworth Brewery, Devizes. Pours a very light orange, almost yellow colour. Aroma quite fruity and flowery - slightly citrus. Nice balance of bitterness and maltiness. Quite pale for a bitter.

harrisoni (19548) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2010
500ml bottle. Having had this on cask, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to this, but this was surprisingly really good. Some house Wadworth yeast on the aroma, but the best things about this beer are the mouthfeel and smooth swallow and the really really good fresh hop sting and lasting hop sting on the finish. Malts are just about ok. Not saying that I’m going out to buy a shed load of this again, but a lot better than I had expected. It won over my indifference.

[Bottle at Wadworth’s brewery bar] Now, this is a bit of a shock - a Waddy’s beer that doesn’t have the usual farmyard/straw/egg flavour. It tastes very fresh and light with a hint of orange. It could make for a pleasant beer if it wasn’t ruined by the intense, prickly and almost metallic carbonation.

johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Orange and clear. Unusual fresh hoppiness with a dry malty finnish. Pleasant and recommended.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle (From Humble Plumb, BB Nov 07). Some frtuitiness but pasteurised boiled caramel shines through. Wouldnt dream it was the same beer as the cask version if I tasted it blind.

imdownthepub (15524) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Orange gold beer with white head. Wadworth have started to bottle their range of beers and sell them through their pubs, this was bought at The Trigger Pond, Bucknell, Oxon. The beer has a sweet hoppy aroma without the Wadworth eggy note. Sweet hoppy beer, quite fresh for a pasteurised, malty base, quite biscuity and a good finishing bitterness. Enjoyable.
