BrianExcellent11 Dec 2009 As usual an excellent, golden ale.
IanAcceptable20 Mar 2009 Bit of toasted butter. Funny my faovurite British beer and yet here in the Evening Star I very irregularly get a pint of it I like. Great sherberty hops on the finish mind, but the bits up front and in the middle let it down.
BrianExcellent23 Nov 2008 Just had to try this in this pub. Great as usual, but seemed better being here. A little thin and a touch cold to begin, but the hop flavours were still bursting out by the end.
IanNot Tried03 Mar 2007
IanGood09 Nov 2006 I watched the landlord change this out for a new barrel. He tried it and nodded appreciatively. I could hardly contain my excitement at having fresh Hophead in the brewery tap. Gold colour with lasting white head. Aromatic hop aroma, some cat pee. Sherbert. Good, but not great. Very good hop is lovely but there was a faint trace of butteryness that I did not care for.

IanExceptional12 Jul 2008 I try so many UK beers that want to be this beer and miss by a country mile. I smiled when I saw this was on. Very lively pouring it, but settles down into a beautiful lemon curdy beer. Perfect aroma, supberb condition, the hops sing. The pint in the Butcher's Arms still wins, but it's marginal. Oh, by the way, if I haven't made it clear to you, this is one of the best pints I've ever had ever. I had no real plans for today, had nothing really to do, haircut, library, and big breakfast of kippers, toast and ducks eggs. Then a couple of decent Deal pubs. Sat in back room overlooking the pub garden and rooftops with weak summer sun shining in. No hurry, don't need to be anywhere, perfect. I love that beer.

IanExceptional10 Mar 2006 When I was waiting for new beers to come on, I would have a half of Hophead. I don't know how they do it, but time after time, this beer is still a stunner. Pale god, but the hops... It's all about this sherberty/soapy/citric hop underpinned by juicy pale malt. Gorgeous
IanExcellent28 Oct 2005 Golden beer with thin white lasting head. Good hops on the nose, just a tad thin and metallic and a bit more watery that usual. Still extremely refreshing pint

AndrewNot Tried24 Sep 2008 Was tempted to have this but really fancied the Broadside
AndrewExceptional05 Sep 2008 Hophead is a superb beer in its own right but when you add to that the care Martyn takes in keeping it then the Butcher’s Arms becomes the best place to drink it.
BlairExcellent15 Aug 2008 Stunning pint as always. Light, hoppy with a grassy flavour to it. Just what I needed after the cycle ride here.

AndrewExcellent14 Jun 2008 Smooth cereal body with that great Dark Star hoppy signiture.
AndrewExceptional17 May 2008 Best session beer (and that's the only kind of beer I really care about) in Britain.
BlairExceptional18 Apr 2008 What more can really be said about this beer? Hoppy, fruity, full of flavour and only 3.8%.
AndrewExceptional12 Apr 2008 Well, I had 5 pints of this so that says quite a lot. Probably the best session bitter in the UK.
IanExceptional12 Apr 2008 This is the best pint of the best session beer in the UK. Hands down. Could have drunk it all night.
BlairExcellent05 Apr 2008 Lovely hoppy straw ale. Really refreshing.

AndrewNot Tried06 Feb 2008
AndrewExceptional22 Sep 2007 Top stuff as always and Martyn probably does the best pint of it I've had. Shame it ran out really but not surprising.
IanExceptional22 Sep 2007 We had a 4 pint jug of it. We were stood with Martyn chatting about GBBF, local pubs and CAMRA in general. One of the women in the pub apparently recognised me. The beer itself was on top form and I almost cried when the barrel ran out.
AndrewExcellent15 Sep 2007 Light and hoppy
AndrewExceptional11 Sep 2007 Fresh, hoppy with hints of grapefruit. What a great pint
AndrewExceptional28 Aug 2007 This was possibly the best pint of Hophead I've had. I sank 2 pints with ease.
IanExceptional17 May 2007 Stunning, brilliant. The benchmark for all other 3.8% blond hoppy beers and this is kept as well as any pint of this beer I've had.
AndrewNot Tried10 Feb 2007
IanExceptional10 Feb 2007 I bought 7 pints of this as take away and had one on Saturday evening and one on Sunday. Both were brilliant. The hop aroma is worth buying this beer for alone. Lovely grapefruit.
IanExcellent11 Jan 2007 That citric hop aroma is absolutely to die for. The fact that it is only 3.8% means that you can keep supping it. Difficult to find fault in it. The finish is so tangy with citrus fruits and drying hop that it makes you want to take another sip. Great session beer.
IanExceptional23 Nov 2006 So drinkable, I didn't notice that I had drunk 3 and a half pints of it. Fantastically aromatic hop aroma, never gets too soapy, and then good pale malt body and a gorgeous lasting hop finish. One of my favourite all time beers.
AndrewExcellent01 Jul 2006 He'd run out of JHB but had this on (which was good as I prefer this to JHB). Nice and clean tasting with lots of grapefruit and that signiture Darkstar taste

Just a little soapy and once you have had this beer at the Butcher's Arms in peak condition, everything else tends to be a bit of a let down.

BrianExcellent25 Sep 2010 Great beer to start you off. Really good condition here. Kevin (the landlord) said some customers had said that it tasted different but for me it was the same excellent golden refreshing beer.
IanGood26 Sep 2009 Yes hoppy, but a styranghe bit of mint in the mouth, but then good lasting hoppy finish.
BrianExceptional30 Sep 2006 Stunning. Fresh and clear. Pale golden straw colour, with hay in the aroma. Citrus and mangoes and bananas in the mouth. Clean finish. Could have drunk it all day.

Martin the MildmanExcellent24 Dec 2011 Obviously a well cellared example of this beer as there was not only the excellent citrus hop flavour but also a well defined underlying malt character adding extra depth and smoothness to the beer. Best sample I've had in a long time - my score 16/20.
