Crafted by the Master Brewer of "Old Speckled Hen" this light golden beer delivers both flavour and refreshment. Brewed using the finest pale malts and the rare galaxy hop.

Very nice, some sweet features and nice aroma. Quite different from normal English traditional ales.

troopie (2295) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Yellow pour with thin white head. Aroma has some skunk, from light in clear bottle. Malty flavour with a rather greasy mouthfeel. Some hop in the finish but more grease.

b3shine (8190) - Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of light caramel with some doughiness and funkiness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Okay for what it is.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
[500ml bottle from Asda, High Wycombe] Pours deep golden with a slight white head and a light fizz. Some lemon up front then lots of leafy hops. Quite sweet. Impressed by GK making a beer where the hops actually show through; the unfortunate thing is that this particular hop flavour is one that Iím not particularly fond of. Nevertheless, itís not a bad beer. Clean finish too,

rumproasts (5054) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
bottle. Deep gold with small head. Thereís a surprisingly big hop finish to this light bodied ale. Pleasant, and goes down easy.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma of grassy, earthy hops, some sweet maltiness and a bit of skunk. Taste is initially of subdued malt and fruits which quickly gives way to some moderate hits of floral hops, citrus and grassy/earthy notes. I like the bitterness, itís just enough to give a kick but not too much to spoil the experience. Nothing special in this beer but itís drinkable.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2013
50cL bottle. Pours a dark yellow, clear, with decent adhesion and a small persistent head. Aroma is medium-hoppy with a bit of skunk mentioned by other reviewers. Taste is balanced, fresh, with some stray barnyard and hay notes. Palate is very good, slightly oily texture, but still relatively crisp and a nice aftertaste. Good to drink all evening, Iíd guess. I would if I had more than one. Far superior to "Old Speckled Hen".
