Bottle. From Morrison’s. I really don’t get much Galaxy in here at all. A tad pineapple but not much. Mainly ruined by too much crystal, light-struck and torrified wheat. A dull session golden ale. Not exciting.

Bottle from Waitrose. Golden, well-carbonated, with small white head. Pleasant floral and grassy aroma. Taste has some bitterness with a honeyed sweet undertone and a note of stale bread. Heavy carbonated mouthfeel. Ok, but nothing too special.

Gold with a white head. Aroma Herbal citrus, grainy, some honey, biscuit. Galaxy? Tastes a bit tired: boiled lemon drops, biscuity malt that can’t hide behind the reasonable bitterness. Eh, after a while maybe it does hide it a bit.

jamestulloch (3304) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of cooked hops, cabbage, dried leaves and cornflakes. Flavour of broccoli, steel and dishwasher. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. This is vile. Drain pour.

Desverger (7722) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Botle from Tesco Extra, Streatham, London (30/12/2015) - golden coloured pour with white head. Bready malty aroma and taste with some skunky grassy hoppy action, light fruity, basic stuff.

Light carbonation, first whiff after the pour is fruity, colour matches the label all golden and light. Dull but with enough malt to liven things up on the palate. Not really a thirst quencher for me, more suited to sip a few slowly and ponder something more interesting to finish the day with.

TedE (906) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2015
NYE Extravaganza. 355ml bottle into glass. Grainy nose, a little fruit. Clear golden beer with light carbonation. Grainy malty taste, short finish with grain, slight touch of fruit. Good in the sun.
