Old Hoppy Hen is brewed for a light richness, skilfully bringing the sensitive aromas of hops to the fore.
Our Master Brewer has brought together four varieties of premium hops and matched them with carefully selected malts to craft a delightfully bitter pale ale bursting with tropical flavour and aroma, most notably a hint of cool fresh grapefruit citrus thanks to the American Chinook hop.
Pale malt and crystal malt give biscuity and toffee notes and the addition of rye malt adds a touch of spiciness and astringency. Single copper hop Chinook gives crisp bitterness and the fresh-picked hoppyness. Late hopping with more Chinook plus Willamette, Cascade and Tettnang adds fresh grapefruit citrus, tropical fruits and a clean fresh-picked hop character and satisfying bitterness.
Perfect with grilled fish or BBQ prawns
