Cloudy orange golden (hazy brown w/ yeast) colour with a small foamy off-white head.
Tropical fruitiness, pine and grainy malt in the aroma.
The flavour is bitter resiny and piney hoppy with grainy maltiness. Quite nice but not spectacular.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle lugged back from England. Clear orange-gold with a large fizzy-foamy fairly long-lasting off-white head. Smells like citrus heaven - citrus zest and ripe pink grapefruit - so good. Taste - wow, so much spicy citrus, yet full of tropical fruit maltiness, lots of almost marigold floral bitterness and some alcohol too - and this bottle has been in my fridge for almost 3 months. Average body, solid carbonation, only a medium-long bitter dry zesty ctirus finish, a little pithy linger on the palate. As almost always, superb from Kernel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Lovibonds 1st November 13. This one is not as aromatic as some, surprised given the Galaxy element. Taste is nice and smooth, I found this not as carbonated as some. Liked it but not as much as some Kernels
