Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A golden coloured pour with a decent white head on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty. Would make a decent session beer.

Fin (7820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Three Tuns, Bristol, 28.01.12 Pours gold edging towards amber with a white head, excellent clarity. Nice beer with decent hoppy overtones, fruity and uncomplicated, but strikes me as being more of a pleasant session beer than something that I could wax lyrical over. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

Golden orange color, small head. The nose is full of honey and citrus fruit. The taste is lightly sweet and bready, very chill and easy. The body is light, carbonation soft. Overall, an OK beer. Not exciting, but nice.

Beersiveknown (3453) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 tried dry hopped with sunrise at Factoberfest 2011.Sunrise gave a good blank slate on which the hop could work its magic with grassy malt and caramel sweetness being taken over by the dry hoppiness and peach of the galaxy Cask at grain barge. Mid brown with Fruity malt, medium carbonation.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding, Oxford. Gold with white head. Fruity, peach, apricot, sweetish golden ale. A little thin on the palate with a pronounced bready character. Some yeasty, slightly tinny hints. Juicy finish. It’s fine.
