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.

AntonyWilson (500) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 6, 2017
500ml Bottle: Pours a crystal clear golden with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, biscuit and a slight resinous hop note. Slightly toasty flavours with nice malt profile. Finishes dry, medium bitterness with lively carbonation. Easy drinking, well balanced ale. Very nice!

simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Pure white creamy head left a cover on a very active, opaque, golden body. Malty, bitter aroma. Medium bodied, soft on the palate, sharp on the back - very sticky & cloying. Bitter tastes with caramel, malt and a burnt aftertaste.

3.3
Davros IX (571) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
A pretty good mouthfeel from a sweet maltyness to the beer. There were some hops on the nose and overall very drinakable. A surprising amout of flavour for the low ABV

Bottle. Nice colour but very short lived head. Dry, crisp, bitter. Its easy to drink but fairly bland.

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks troubles. Golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, malt, light minerals note, dusty note, honey note, and floral hops. Mildly sweetish flavor, malty, grainy, with a bit of honey, dusty hint, bitterish finish. Rather light-bodied.
