COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled;
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.

From Lidl. In Ikeaís pint glass. After dinner. Light and watery. Dull flavors with strong grassy bitterness, zesty and with a dry finish that gives thirst and leaves you thirsty when finished

Marko (5597) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2017
Thanks Hrabren & Anja! Poured a nice clear darker golden body with a white head, small but relatively lasting, quite carbonated. Cereal aroma, with vague fruity hoppy touches. Mild, watery, soft taste, vague fruity touches from Galaxy on a dull grainy malty body, ending limp, flat and boring. A waste of good hops. Just trace herbal bitterness in the finish. No, actually, a waste of good hops and malts. Potentially water too. Unsure about yeast. This barely functions due to the ingredients themselves, but itís shoddy, lifeless and soulless. Hoppy golden ale brought back to life as a zombie.

nephirem (502) - CROATIA - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour with one finger white head, relatively short lasting. Subtle but pleasant on the nose. Slightly hoppy and herbal with a peppery touch. Thin to medium body. A bit heavy on the carbonation, very prickly. Otherwise, regular texture. Pretty dry mouthfeel, moderately bitter taste. Notes of pine and citrus, earthy hops. A bit grassy. Malty caramel in the background. Somewhat strange aftertaste, reminds me of tobacco. A bit ashy. Lots of herbal notes. Finish is medium lasting and quite dry. Overall, not bad. Would prefer stronger hop character, but otherwise itís good.
