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.

Ferris (8937) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle - Grass, grapefruit and light caramel. Clear gold with a thin head. Biscuit, caramel and light hop bitterness. Much better than I expected from a lighter ale. Very tasty.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Bottled. A golden coloured beer which pours pretty much with no head. Very juicy zesty hops in the aroma with pink grapefruit. Just a touch of cardboard. It’s the same in the mouth. Again zesty and hoppy. A bit of peach now. Nice for sure.

KyotoLefty (8125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2012
500 ml bottle. Big burst of skunk when opened, though balanced a bit with caramel malt and citrus, grass hop. Clear amber, low bubbly head. Nicely fruity andnhoppy, with light caramel and good bready malts. No skunk here. Decent, but they must lose the clear bottles.

The miracle finally happened: 2 years after opening Hinckley Tesco have new beer on the shelves, including several I’ve not tried. Bottle at The Penguin. Pale gold corkscrewing with fizz. High Gillette head. Buttered plastic, hint of wheat and lime in the aroma. Not unpleasantly buttered flavour; pastry, corn, OK some JHB Fairy Liquid notes as it warms. Light astringent finish. Pleasant cornflake afters, Rich Tea. Honey? Better than expected.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Deep gold with a momentary, white, head. Sweet malts, a hint of toast, stone fruits, a touch of soap, lime and a gentle finish. Would probably be better in a brown bottle, but I have had far worse from GK.

Plovmand (7179) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is grassy and fruity hoppy. The flavor is grassy, malty and fruity. Grassy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Morrisons, Partick. Pours clear pale gold with a short-lived white head. Aromas are light bread, honey sweet, very light citrus. Taste is sweet too. Very little of the galaxy hop in evidence. Thin texture, finishes sweet. Not great.

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.
