BrewerHockley Valley Brewing Co.

StyleEnglish Brown Ale

Country – Ontario, Canada


Hockley Valley is a small craft brewer from Orangville Ontario.

About the Beer – The beer pours a nice copper brown colour with a mocha head.  The nose is great.  You can pick up toasted malts, toffee, and a bit of vanilla.  The flavour is not what I was expecting (in a good way).  It has some really nice roasted coffee malt flavour followed up by a nutty and earthy finish.

Would I Drink it Again? Yes, this is a very nice Traditional English Ale.  Easy drinking beer!
