Old Golden Hen (England)
Old Golden Hen
The Summer Ale from the producers of Old Speckled Hen. This is a lighter brew that uses lighter malt tones to create a lighter brother to the world famous Old Speckled Hen. The brewery has been established since 1711.
As soon as the beer is poured the skunky, fruity aromas from the Galaxy hops are apparent. The beer is a clear golden liquid, with a slight fizz and a quickly disappearing white head. The skunk flavour continues down on to the tongue without a great deal of depth. The beer has a light to medium body. Overall this beer is a good beer that is really refreshing.
