Pint of keg. Not awful but entirely tedious. Tastes similar to a homebrew lager. Maybe suffers from travel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: grain malts, light citrus, floral hops. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, some citrus, acidic, light grass and floral notes again. Overall: nice Golden Ale, almost a bit too much trying to be an APA. Pint at the Old Red Cow, Smithfield.

Lovely grassy aroma of hops in the glass. Pours cloudy pale amber with a thin frothy White head that lasts. Feels smooth in the mouth with dog carbonation. Taste is great; medium sweet, very light bitter with hoppy flavours leaving a pleasant aftertaste. Definitely recommend this beer.

Love this beer, better on tap IMHO as it seems to pour with a creamier head.
My goto at present. The galaxy hops show through giving it that citrus kick, and the late bitterness associated with the high alpha content of the hop.
Great summer beer on a hot day!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Medium-high hops, piney, citrus, Medium-light apricot. No Malt.
Appearance: Clear, yellow body. Small white head, fair retention.
Flavour: Medium piney, citrus. Medium-light sweetness, medium-light bitterness.Very dry, almost astringent finish. Crisp
Mouthfeel: High carbonation. Light body
Overall: Easy drinking, but the aroma promises more than the beer delivers. A nice beer, but the carbonation is too high, causing more burps than sips. The astringency is off-putting.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Danie!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours sunny yellow with thin white head. Aroma is the best part of this beer- juicy tropical fruit galore. You get pineapple, mango, peach, grapefruit, mandarin- you name it. Combined with a fresh, citrus hoppy aroma as well. Taste is lovely and light, definitely a summer session ale, so not exactly a great match to my stormy autumn night, but goes nicely with my hot curry. Hop character is quite understated. Sweet refreshing finish with light bitterness, lively carbonation. Refreshing, but not something to savor.
