You can't really go wrong with Morland's (now Greene King) Hen range so I thought I'd give award winning Old Golden Hen a try. Just look at that beautiful golden pint - it's like sunshine in a glass! It's a deep golden beer with a loose, frothy cream coloured head. The head doesn't last long, although what is there does cling to the side of the glass.
The aroma is very hoppy with hints of tropical fruit, along with some malty biscuit and caramel once it settles in the glass. It's so hoppy at first that the aroma wafts out of the bottle as soon as it is opened.
Unsurprisingly, with such a strong hoppy aroma, it tastes deliciously hoppy with a hint of fruit drizzled with caramel. It's very crisp dry and refreshing with medium body and an abundance of hop filled bubbles that fizz around your mouth with each sip.
Although I felt like I should be enjoying it in a beer garden on a sunny day, it can also bring the sunshine indoors on a grey day. Old Golden Hen is a lovely golden beer that Ale Be Seeing again.
