KeefOz (1429) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2016
Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation moderate and fine to medium. Aroma of malt with a hint of spice and lacking in tropicals. Taste of pale malt, spice and grain with a tarty bitterness and again no real tropical flavours. Light body. Smooth and crisp while cold with a short lived slight bitterness on the finish.

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
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.
