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.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours hazy, dull gold with a foamy, white head. Woody and pithy hops in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some dry grass, wood, pithy citrus, toast. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. The bitterness in the finish is a touch harsh. There’s a bit of astringency to the wood and grass that really lingers. It’s a relatively small quibble, though, and overall the beer is very good.

Bottle at home, as Galaxy Cascade 5.2%, 19/05/16 .... Kernel Rate #300 !!! Murky golden amber with a well appointed off white head. 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. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close dashed with juicy hop bitterness. Decent enough APA but doesn’t quite sing to me as well as Kernel normally does.

Scopey (12677) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle at the Kernel Brewery. It pours hazy orange, with a massive off-white head. The nose is tangerine, grapefruit, leather, urine and some herbal notes. The taste is pine, resin, leather, grapefruit, tangerine, herbal, spice and earth, with a dry-citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Some interesting flavours coming through on this one.
