3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at GJBF 2016. This pale is a bright gold and made with the Bacuri fruit which gives it a very unique aroma: a sharply tart candyish quality and I then a very like notes. The taste isn’t as nice as the nose, some fruit syrup, Bacuri candy, diacetyl (?) but alright. I wish the taste had lived up to the aroma.

Golden and clear. Thin head. Fruity aroma with slightly toasty malts. Mellow malty palate, a bit sweet, with just subtle influence of unknown Amazonian fruits.

330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 16, courtesy of Simon. Many thanks. Pours clear golden yellow, minimal head. Lovely fruity aroma, which I assume is the Bacuri fruit. Taste is light and fresh with a great Bacuri presence. Clean, fruity and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with a thin white head which rapidly dissipates. Aroma of pale malts with a nice citrus hit. Flavour is sweet, citrussy tropical fruit, malt. It’s similar to (and better than) a Corona with lime wedge, or a Desperados without the chemically taste. Texture is oily-watery and the carbonation is soft making it seem a little flat, apart from that it’s a nice refreshing beer, good after spicy food.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Minimal head on pouring and looks like a lager. The bacuri fruit seems very citrusy, not dissimilar to having a wedge of lime. Refreshing but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours yellowish from the bottle with minimal head. Aroma is fruity with malt undertones. Taste lightly malty with lots of lemon, sugar, and distinct fruit flavor that I take to be bacuri. Medium bodied with little carbonation. Admittedly a bit harsh, but the end result reminds me of a pale lager mixed with lemon and a Sprite gone flat. A creative brew, but not personally to my taste.
