The Hop Nouvelle
The Hop Nouvelle is a bottled conditioned, exceptionally pale beer, brewed using “green” hops – harvested hops which have not been dried in a kiln. These hops were pitched to the copper within an hour of picking. The two hop varieties used for this beer were Mathon Golding from Lulsley Court and First Gold from Tedney. Both farms are within half a mile of the brewery.
Gold/amber, very slightly cloudy, small head; low carbonation; earthy hop aroma; tastes malty, with fruit possibly lemons and particularly limes. Lasting grassy hop finish.
The verdict – a fresh, crisp and obviously hoppy, most enjoyable, best served from the Fridge.
Aroma: Earthy Hop
Taste: Malty with lemon and limes.
