Appearance is a clear brown with a thing white head. The aroma is sweet floral hops and mango. Taste is initially sweet and then sour and bitter, slightly astringent finish. Texture is oily with very mild carbonation, feels a bit watery with a bit of a lack of depth on the palate.

Bottle: Brown color, off-white head. Light malty aroma with light sweetness but mainly hop aromatic aroma with herbs, flowers and citrus. Flavor is also light malty with light candy notes, hints of roasted malt and again hops with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, grapes, citrus. Very tasty and lovely for this low alcohol content.

pours sark chestnut brown with slight foamy beige head. Strong tangerine on nose with digestive biscuits in behind. Fairly full bodied for a beer so low in alcohol, juicy pithy hops backed up by moreish malting. branflakeswith a glass of breakfast juice! Good job Col!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle. BBE 07/2013.
Pours clear dark ruby red color with a medium sized frothy head. Aroma is quite nice and floral, exotic fruits, mostly mango, the slight nutty malts don’t quite fit here though. Flavor of grape fruits, some grass, mild goose berries and some hops. Slick palate, somewhat juicy berry finish. A tad too watery but very easy to drink and otherwise decent brew.
