Hook Norton’s Old Hooky (4.6% ABV) is allegedly one of the 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die.  It’s a really rich deep copper colour  and the head, though not as creamy as some beers, does last very well.  There’s something in this beer for everyone and this is reflected in the aroma:  it’s a subtle mixture of malt, biscuit and fruit.  The flavour is well-rounded and deep, with strong malt at first giving way in part to orange:  not sweet, but certainly not bitter either.  This is a very accomplished beer that deserves to be savoured, and probably not with food.
