OLD GOLDEN HEN
7th November 2016 – Review by Andy
“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. Hold it up to the light before tasting, and savour its bright golden glow. Spot, if you care to, the note of grapefruit and mango on the nose and then sip. Malty sweetness, a hint of tropical fruit and a clean finish: out of this world.
The Old Golden Hen’s lightness makes it the perfect partner to fish, seafood, chicken and spicier dishes.
So there you have the official word on Old Golden Hen from the Morland Brewery.
My thoughts? 4.1% in strength so very much brewed for a session beer, light brown in colour, looks great. A nice refreshing clean taste very hoppy with a fresh aftertaste slightly fruity.
A very decent craft beer that goes down a treat, hits the spot with me and is very drinkable. Morland Brewery beers are readily available these days, think Old Speckled Hen, so if you haven’t tried Old Golden Hen, treat yourself – one to look out for in the supermarket aisles.
