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.

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.

AndrewExceptional10 Jun 2009 The best beer? ... in Kent's best pub? I think so.
IanExceptional10 Jun 2009 I had this in Lewes on Monday and it was very fine then, but this is even better. Just so crisp and drinkable. The blend with the Jaipur was great, the freshness of the Hophead with the structure and extra weight of the Jaipur

BlairExceptional18 Apr 2009 I don't care if some people say this is a womans beer. It is amazing.
BlairExceptional07 Apr 2009 It may well be because I'd been looking forward to this all day, but this was absolutely delightful. Light, hoppy and refreshing. Beautiful.
AndrewExceptional04 Apr 2009 I've said it before and I'm going to say it again... When you've had this in the Butcher's Arms there's no point in having it else where because it's not going to be better than here. I think this has to be my favourite session beer of all time.

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.

BlairExceptional18 Apr 2008 What more can really be said about this beer? Hoppy, fruity, full of flavour and only 3.8%.
IanExceptional12 Apr 2008 This is the best pint of the best session beer in the UK. Hands down. Could have drunk it all night.
AndrewExceptional12 Apr 2008 Well, I had 5 pints of this so that says quite a lot. Probably the best session bitter in the UK.

AndrewNot Tried06 Feb 2008
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.
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.
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.
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.
AndrewNot Tried10 Feb 2007
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
