COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 to give a light golden colour, subtle tropical fruit notes and a deliciously smooth finish.

Pint in pub. Lovely golden colour, thin lacey head. Nice and sweet with lovely fruitness. Well worth a pint.

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Clear amber pour with a moderately fizzy head that left a lingering foam. Sharp bitter with some refined caramel in balance. Still fizzy on the tongue despite the cask. Well blended. Feels simple, but also cleverly perfect. Quite nice.

Belle couleur presque rousse. Note de fruits tropicaux, sucre candi mais bien équilibrés. Un must !

Quite a hoppy aroma backed up by light amber appearance and strong taste. Always an enjoyable pint.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Cask @ The Lansdowne Leicester. Golden coloured (unsurprisingly) fruity aroma. Slightly tropical fruit taste, very slight bitterness. It’s alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Cask Conditioned Handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A light golden beer with a white head and lacing. Decent hops in the nose. I thought US of some description but not surprised they’re galaxy. Sweet, hoppy and with house yeast in the mouth. These struggle a little to work perfectly, but it’s still a flavoursome characterful effort. Score 3.4
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.5
