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.

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, I’d guess. I would if I had more than one. Far superior to "Old Speckled Hen".
