Bodney Towers Bottleshare. Thanks to our drinking buddy - Bruce for this can. Light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Soft pale malts, lovely light creamy sweetness. Hops bring a bitter orange and a touch of pith. Little grapefruit. Fresher orange emerges and then a little bitterish lemon. Smooth dry finish. Very fresh and drinkable.
July 2017 - Can shared at Leighton’s. Many thanks to Bruce. As ’Grimm Awoogah’, 6.7%. Vibrant yellow, hazy with a foamy white head. Aroma is seaside, spinach, rock pool. Body is light with tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is fruit salad, pineapple, floral, [notes unreadable here due to water damage], crisp finish with a bitter linger. Aroma is a big dodgy but it tastes great. (7-4-9-3-16=3.9) ClarkVV (7050) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Draught at Picco, 6/20/17.PhillyCraft (8322) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2017
Heavily hazy, bronze-golden with an almost lime-like tint to it. Thick white head atop shows moderately-strong retention.
Unripe tropical fruit notes in the nose of papaya, nectarine, pineapple and lemon/lime zest gain a bit of biscuit and light honey-like malts, that more or less balance. There’s a strong spiciness to it, underarching everything, which I assume is the hallertauer blanc. Some light minerality/wine-like character but not nearly as strong as usual for Galaxy. Some light resin on the finish but nothing aggressive, with no flaw or alcohol.
Strong carbonation, fortunately quite tight and engaging, spurs on a moderate bitterness that is highlighted by pineapple and nectarine notes. Strong biscuit-like malts and light-to-moderate honey-like sweetness create a very "thick" texture that helps soak up a lot of the bitterness. Still, there’s a lot more of it here than I’d prefer and even where the bitterness ends, there’s a lot of uninteresting, bland, unripe nectarine/pineapple character. Warming/breathing helps, of course, leading to a bit more general juiciness/fruitiness, but this is not my favorite display of the otherwise fantastic Galaxy hop. Could be the addition of Hallertauer blanc, which I’ve thus far been highly unimpressed with, finding it to have neither the lush, elegant, spicy, freshly cut grass of classic Hallertauer strains, nor any developed, juicy fruit character of the nouveau IPA hops.
Can care of Jim shared with Bill, HaZy yellow golden with medium white head and lacing. Notes of orange resin, pine, oats, and light vanilla but not sweet. This 6.7 tastes like 5.5. great beeR
