Jennings Cocker Hoop is a 4.2% ABV golden pale ale, though my bottle was a little cloudy suggesting that a secondary fermentation had taken place inside the bottle. It’s a honey colour, with a honey scent, and, yes, a bit of a honey flavour too, with a hint of lemon and a light bitterness. Nothing too complex or subtle. Not bad.

I think that I bought this beer fairly cheaply, probably as a result of its 3.5% ABV, and it’s really not bad at all! It’s a traditional bitter, and somewhat darker in colour than the fashionable golden/amber ales that are so common. It smells faintly of yeast and not a lot else – either that or the onions I’ve been chopping have deprived me of all sense of smell! There’s a nice, toasty, nutty flavour from the malt, and this Camra Award-winning beer goes down very easily indeed. I’d be very happy to be drinking this at £1 a pint in my local!
