Hook Norton Hooky Gold

Categories: [ Beer/Hook Norton ]


“…fruity, moderate bitterness and spicy. Hooky Gold marries English tradition with american pizzazz – it is the first of our beers to use an American hop – Willamette, together with English Fuggles and Goldings.”

Very flowery smell, but got boring near the end of the glass. Contains malted barley and wheat.

Double Stout

Categories: [ Beer/Hook Norton ]


“Black malt enriches the colour and teases the palate with an unmiskable ‘toast’

flavour. Brown malt gives it the dryness. An excellent accompaniment to red meat.”

Smells of a fruit I cannot put a name onto. The taste is bitter, a bit like coffee, with a sweet finish that reminds me of chocolate. I didn't find the ‘toast’ flavour, though. Made of malted barley.

303 A.D.

Categories: [ Beer/Hook Norton ]


“English malt and English hops combine to make a very English beer. Dry and crisp, with a hint of citrus. 303 A.D. – the year of St George – is the beer of St George.”

Pale and quite bitter, with vaguely flowery taste.

Old Hooky

“fruity by nature with a well rounded body and the suggestive echo of Crystal malt… Our traditional Victorian tower brewery … is still powered by a steam engine.”

Vaguely fruity and moderately bitter. Just another ale. Made of malted barley and wheat.
