Nose is bitter orange, melon, earthy hop, light mineral exhaust, airy malts.
Taste comprises soft bread, peach, tangerine, chalky mineral rinse, mango pulp, sweet licks.

Hazy tangerine coloured beer, good white head. Light palate. Dry and a little crispy. A little lacto cream in the even pale malt. A little fresh orange and grapefruit, the grapefruit providing bitterness. That typical Galaxy earthy mango is here but very subtle. Fairly bitter dry finish with mild minerals. Real legs in the bitterness that reach long in to the aftertaste.

Galaxy Cascade version! Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, fairly dry and has good fine carbonation. Thin malts, mild sweetness. Dry spicy hops with floralness, mildly tangy citrus and a trace of candy fruits. Tangy fruity spicy finish, a whisper of Galaxy fruit salad. Plenty going on.
