COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Na een geslaagde session ale met uitsluitend Citra hop, besloten we bij herhaling van dat kunstje de lat nog hoger te leggen. De Galaxy Session Ale bevat nóg minder alcohol maar minstens zoveel smaak. Het is wederom een single hop brouwsel. Met alleen Galaxy hop dus. Die geeft dit bier z’n volle, frisse smaak. Een bijzonder zomerse aanwinst en zoals de naam al aangeeft ideaal voor korte danwel lange sessies op ons terras. Met slechts 3.8% alcohol ook in dat laatste geval prima te verantwoorden. Zolang de voorraad van 2000 liter strekt uitsluitend van tap in ons proeflokaal.

Light, crisp with some herbs and green fruit but unfortunately lacks depth of flavour to hold and particular interest. I can see why it forms part of the tap list however.

wombat23 (1838) - Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Draft at the source. Clear golden-amber with a white head. Aroma and taste of citrus, grass, pine. Light-bodied and easy to drink. Decent.

Zlotta (3981) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Clear, golden amber with a frothy, white head. Fruity-grassy aroma of grapefruit, mango, peach and some pine. Slightly bitter, citrusy-grassy taste of lemon peel, grapefruit and mango, followed by a short, rather bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. Nice!

DSG (15312) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2015
[9/26/15] Draught at In De Wildeman in Amsterdam. Golden. Aroma of graininess and fruity-ish leafy hops. Dry flavor with graininess and bitter leafy hops. Light-bodied.

PhillyCraft (7990) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Sampled at the brewery with Al, Barry, and Keith. Pours clearish golden with medium head. Notes are grass, herbs, pine, and burnt toast. I like that its hoppy/bitter but this galaxy crop is off and not as dank/tropical as she needs to be. Still nice to get hops into my system in Europe.

3.2
Scotty001 (573) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Fairly average pale ale. A bit too bitter to be of any great rating. Look is OK, aroma is fairly bitter.

3.1
mR_fr0g (13673) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Keg at the brewpub. Clear golden orange coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is semi sweet malts, faint orange rind and notes of tropical fruit. Flavour is composed of base grains, ginger nut biscuit, orange rind, bitter lemon, faint metallic in the finish. Palate is semi sweet, highish carbonation, drying crisp finish. Bitterness is out of balance with this beer.

3.3
Borresteijn (7521) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2015
On tap at t IJ. Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of herbal hops, pine, hint of fruits, grain, toast. Flavour is light sweet, herbal bitter, some pine, some tropical fruit, bitter grapefruit peel, long and harsh herbal bitter finish, like quinine, tiny bit of toast. Light bodied. Not my kind of hop, but well- made beer.

3.5
vipinvelp (4555) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2015
Clear amber, white lasting, lacing foam head. Nice hoppy aroma and bitter taste. In particular aftertaste is long lasting. (Amsterdam 201509)
