3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber. A dry and fruity nose full of pulpy apricot. Sweet and apricotty in the mouth with a perfectly balanced malt backbone. Light in body and bitterness though it has just enough of both. Awesome session beer with a good strong nettley tang

reasonable given it’s from Marstons. I’m sure there are much better examples of Galaxy beers out there.
good golden colour with a thick micro bubble head.
mild juicy cirtus hop aroma. slight taste of passion fruit and a bittersweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Café Royal, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Clear pale golden colour with small creamy off-white head.
Stunning aroma of berry and fruity hops. American (even though it’s Australian) style hops. Very nice hoppy flavour. Some sweetness. Malty body. Balanced. Slightly thin. Hoppiness could be a bit stronger though. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Kings Arms, Waterloo, London. Amber with white head. Really quite a tasty, hoppy, bitter flavour, sharp but with an apricot fruitiness. Lasting and drying on the palate. It went really well with a terrific Thai meal in the back hall.
