Pours a golden amber that is crystal clear with a foamy white head. Aroma of sourdough bread and honey. Taste is sweeter than old speckled hen, with a little bit of dryness at the finish. Very similar with a little more tartness.

Old Golden Hen has a thick, white head, a hazy, amber (golden, under direct sunlight) appearance, some streaming bubbles, and thin lacing on the glass. The aroma is slightly skunky (clear bottle), somewhat sweet, white bread crust, and mild, mellow hop resin. Taste is of white bread crust, sugar crystals, mild, somewhat moldy, hop bitterness, and tap water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Old Golden Hen finishes dry, easy drinking, and somewhat dull.

Holy ester explosion. On draft at the bar. Full of light fruitiness with a touch of honey and very light toffee. The flavor is nothing short of a bag of skittles. A light diacetyl mouthfeel but king if just rounds it out and prevents any watery mouthfeel. Not really buttery. Reminds me of honey graham crackers with cream cheese. Really good. Would crush.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruits, hay and malt in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Overall a nice golden ale, but not something special about it.

Drink this excellent beer almost in room temperature if it’s cold the fine aroma doesn’t come up ! The first sip is fruity but the end taste is so fine malty and hop.

Ok, easy to get beer. Agree that it’s a bit boring and a bit lightweight but will do
