3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a large fading head.
Lovely aroma of fruity, floral and spicy hops, some biscuity malt and light sweetness.
Flavours are not as good, some of the hops transfer through with spicy floral notes but there’s also a grainy wheat note. Finishes with an assertive bitterness.
Nice moderately high carbonation works well.

Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of strong pineapple, grass and mild grape notes. Flavour of grainy malts, strong pineapple, white grapes, floral hops, grass and strong unclean retronasal grainy notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Refreshing but I was let down a bit by the unclean graininess.
