September - October
Flowery ale brewed with eight British hops
Sample the best of Brit Hop
Released for the first time in 2013, Brit Hop is a fruity, flowery ale brewed with a medley of eight English hops. It’s a festival of flavour, with all the ingredients to become one of our centre-stage seasonals.
An exciting collaboration
Originally brewed in association with Hardknott Brewery in Cumbria, Fuller’s Brit Hop really flies the flag for British beer. All eight hops are entirely home-grown, including the Admiral 2012 hop, used here in a Fuller’s brew for the very first time.
For the record, you’ll find it on cask in March and April.
Light tawny in colour, Brit Hop hits spicy, peppery high notes with hints of rich gooseberry and vine fruit amid the hoppy, flowery character. The unique combination of the eight different hops sees the beer chart a course towards a full-flavoured finish, fading out to a soft, sweet aftertaste.
Raise a Glass
Among the eight hops used in the brewing process one, in particular, can be considered a big hit. The Admiral hop won the Institute of Brewing and Distilling award for Best Hop in 2012.
