COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Single hopped Australian pale ale. A new beer fom the team here at Thornbridge “Galaxia”. The name might suggest it’s from the stars but it refers to this being a single hopped pale ale – a beer brewed to showcase the Australian hop variety Galaxy. Caolan Vaughan our resident antipodean says ”Using our fantastic pale ale recipe allows this stunning hop to transform this beer into a pleasurable experience in a glass - one for all hop lovers”. The Galaxy hop imparts striking beautiful aromas of mango, guava and grapefruit. While providing an intensely tingling bitter finish.

Keg at Redwillow Bar, Macclesfield. A hazy straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of mango, some melon, slight lemon, a little straw and subtle grassy hops. Taste is similar of mango, some melon, slight lemon, a little straw, a hint of caramel and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, crisp, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A refreshing pale ale, lovely in the summer. Another good beer from Thornbridge.
