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 chilled bottle. Pleasant light beer: good on a warm day because of its nuanced hoppy taste and moderate alcohol level. Also quite forgettable: I don't know if I will ever buy this beer again... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the exciting, challenging and thought provoking Sainsburys range 😮. Gold pour with a white head. Bitter citrus on the nose. Bitter citrus flavour. Quite refreshing.

500ml bottle from Tesco tasted at home. Chilled to below cellar temperature. Very nice, fruity, summer ale.

Good hoppy aroma. Medium but short-lasting head. Clear golden body. Good hoppy, resiny taste, not very intensive but noticeable.

500ml bottle from local shop. Deep golden colour, white foam head and malty aroma with a metallic hop note. Taste is malt, citric fruity, some hay & straw and metallic bitterness. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, dry tangy grassy bitter finish. OK.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Langely Moor, £1.24/500ml. Aroma is strong and earthy. Pour deep golden with a thin, very quickly diminishing cream coloured head. Initial taste is malty, giving way to heavy bitterness with marked carbonation. None of the promised citrus flavours. Perhaps over-hopped. Mediocre at best.

Malty butter citrus aroma. Heavy golden clear brown body. No head. Bubbly like a soda. Bold sleek slippery feel. Lightly roasted malt with a hit of bitterness and spice.

Golden yellow but no head - slight carbonation. Decent aroma of citrus fruit. Smooth on tongue and in mouth. Refreshing. Maintains fruity taste with slight fizz. Enjoyed.

Of Morland’s Family of Hen’s, the Golden is a very different style. Now This Ale packs a lovely grassy, floral aroma which is not overpowering but remind’s me of a summer garden, this drink’s best quality by far. It pours Golden, but weak liquor, clear, looking pretty much like a run of the mill lager. In the mouth it’s soapy, very thin okay carbonation and watery substance. On the Taste buds it’s actually very drinkable, Mild, and soothingly refreshing, with hints of Clementine, lemon and melon, but mild in malt, or hop volume, but still an amazingly laid back, easy going thirst quencher which is easy to get to know. A summer drink.
