A sharp edge of citrus cuts through earthy background flavours. Beautifully balanced, but a bit on the wild side – ‘Sussex Born and Bred!’
The ‘Sussex Hop’ used in our Wild Hop beer named the overall winner at The British Hop Awards 2015.
‘Sussex Hop’, from A H Hoad and Son, was found growing wild in 2005 in Gate Court, in Northiam, East Sussex by Peter Cyster, whose family has been growing hops since 1900. He thought the hop showed promise, and so cultivated and propagated it.
Sussex born and bred, Sussex Wild Hop was inspired by the discovery of a previously unknown hop, growing wild in East Sussex. It is supplemented with Cascade hops grown in the UK. Best served slightly chilled.
This great example of what English ale brewers do best: packing in the flavour at a relatively low alcoholic strength. Dry and refreshing, with a hop-forward character that punches above its weight without overbalancing or distorting the beer.
Those hops provide a subtle hint of lemon to complement the dryness, making this a perfect beer to pair with fish or seafood dishes as well as a great foil for anything creamy. It’s amazing with seafood linguine, or if you’re fish-free, a soft, creamy cheese such as feta in a Greek salad.
