Hook Norton Old Hooky

A full blooded beer which packs in more flavour than you would think the alcohol would warrant. Copper in colour, Old Hooky is rounded and fruity – cooked plum and spiced apples – with malt backbone and a balanced slug of hops on the finish. Fine solo but great also with simply cooked meats, cheese and roast veg.
