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 (1877) - 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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

GTAEgeek (1392) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Sample at ACAT. Nice gold color, with a small, off-white. Bubbly head. Bright aroma of roses, pine, caramel, and a little rye. Sweet and malty, with a not insignificant bitterness. Light body, creamy, and clean. Very nice, sessionable beer.

jbruner (2826) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Cask sampled at ACAT 2015. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber wroth bubbly white head. Aroma of bready biscuit malt over a hint of tropical fruit hoppiness. Taste is more hop forward than the nose, but nice balance still. Hop forward english golden ale, like it quite a lot.
