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.

[CASK: The Salisbury Ale House, Manchester 04/11/06] This is a nice harvest ale refreshing and nice flavourings. Definatly worth a tipple if you come across it.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Golden orange, hoppy aroma, light fresh fruity hoppy bitter. i think the fresh hop does show through.

Tk2 amber ... light hop nose ... again light fresh hops witha toffee malt backbone ... medium carbonation and low bitterness

Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Fruity strawlike hops. Some sweetness and full body. Mild bitterness to finish. Quite sessionable despite strength. Hop character is quite soft - wether this is due to them being green, the variety or the quantity used I dont know.

Cask handpump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden colour with white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy and malty taste. The hops and malts are there in equal measure, balanced but not in a good way, they don’t seem very happy together.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2004
Cask at Standing Order, JDW Ocktoberfest. Staggeringly average bitter. Pleasent enough but no real depth or character. Has a sharpness, supposedly from the green hops, but tasted more like it was just an unrefined bitter.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Crosse Keys, London.
Light golden colour, static frothy white head, persisting. Sulphurous aroma towards the end. Tasting partially unfermented. Far from spectacular.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Cask: Clear golden appearance, good head formation. Hoppy aroma. Mild sweet flowery palate, mildly fruity, fresh, moderatley bitter finish. Uninteresting.

Pale straw colour. Apparently, this beer is made with green hops. However, the hop presence in the aroma is modest. The flavour has some sweet malt a some hop bite, but it’s dry rather than bitter. Overall, quite pleasant, but all a bit muted. Not the first time I’ve tried a green hop beer, expecting a fresh vibrant, zesty character that has failed to materialise although, judging from others comments, this may have more to do with the condition than the beer itself. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London SW1.

Ungstrup (38243) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2003
[Cask at Charlie's Bar, Copenhagen] The aroma is hoppy and grassy. The color is hazy orange and it has a small but steady and lasting head. The flavor is sweet malty to start of with notes of fruit, fresh hops, hop oils, and a little grass. It ends on a slight bitter and oily note, that lingers prickling on the tongue. A fantastic flavor.
