Old Golden Hen captures a celestial ray of sunshine in the form of a rare and very special Tasmanian hop called Galaxy. The result is a triumph for its sheer powers of refreshment. Malty sweetness, a hint of tropical fruit and a clean finish: out of this world.

Aroma: Tropical notes of grapefruit & mango.
Taste: Tropical fruits & malt sweetness with a crisp finish.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear gold, moderate head and lacing. Aroma is light malt and light earthy English hops. Taste is about the same. Nothing about this was really ground breaking, but it was a really enjoyable example from a usually boring or bland style. It actually worked and I was pleasantly surprised.

3.1
TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
500 mL bottle. Looks like apple juice. A tiny bit of head. Odd aroma: grape juice, apple juice, and medicine. The flavour is acceptable, but far less interesting. Quite estery. Lowish carbonation.

3.3
bigguns22 (803) - Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Not a beer I would drink on the regular but not bad. Golden to lite amber in color with a small white head. Aroma is a little skunky. Starts out a little bitter and finishes earthy and wheaty with hints of caramel.
