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.

Quite refreshing pours golden with dissipating head decent mix of sweet and bitter tastes of buttertscoth well carbonated if a little bland.

50cl bottle. Aroma distinctly reminiscent of lemonade, with some butteriness. Pours brite, bubbles rise nonchalently through a golden boy, white foam atop, dissipates to a think skim, laces lazily. Light. Gentle bitterness - nettley, grassy, but nicely subdued in both senses. My evaluation somewhat overpowered by food - barely picked out a malt backbone.

From the clear bottle 1 pint 9 oz. bottle. An attractive golden pour with a modest, short-lived white head. My bottle was probably skunked so the aromas I get are tainted but I am picking up that Scottish Highland mineral water, pale malts, maybe a touch of orange, and vague grassy hops. The body is smooth and a bit better than light. The taste has a golden malt character with a clean hop finish. Typical for the style but not anything that stands above it all. Still decent enough.

500ml bottle at home. Pure golden clear colour with a decent carbonated white head. Notes of bread dough, malts and light sweet fruit. Sweet finish

Gładkie. Delikatne cytrusy w aromacie. Nienajniższa goryczka, niskie wysycenie i doskonała pijalnosc.

Wixie (589) - BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Clear liquid, strange colour. Small head. Aroma of citrus. Light body, no carbonation. Taste is sour, sweet and bitter and very weak.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Bottle in a sampler pack as a Christmas gift from Surdyk’s. This does not smell pleasant. I can’t tell if that?s purposeful since most English beer is pretty skunky. It?s got a very pale, piss golden color to it. Minimal head. Unfortunately, the taste is pretty much exactly same as the aroma. Borderline awful. Lots of pilsner elements and a bitter grain overarching presence. Like a frat party keg beer if there was frat party keg beer in England. Bitter and not satisfying whatsoever. Avoid.

Nice golden colour, soft citrus flavour with a Nicely blended hoppy taste. Lovely and refreshing.

JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly spicy and refreshing. A little bit of citrus and some nice clean malt. A touch of spicy hoppiness and a little bit of lingering fruit. A pretty simple, refreshing brew.

3.2
arsol (1199) - NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Klar lys brun farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter malt og mye sitron. Lettdrikkelig ale med sitrussmak. Syrlig også som avslutning.
