(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange, white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, oranges and mandarin. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of malt with the tropical fruit and citrus fruits. Nice bitterness accompanies the lemon/grassy notes.

yngwie (13508) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. It’s a hazy, golden-orange beer topped by a creamy off-white head. The aroma is mostly on the orangey, citrusy side, with a little malty touch. Quite bitter on the palate, with oranges and pine cones. Full to medium body, semi-dry and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish with oranges. Straight forward and far from complex, but easy drinkable and quenching. 140228

mt_hall (110) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled. Copper coloured with some haze and a thick head of fine foam. Tropical fruit aromas and some pine too. Sweet tropical fruit in the mouth too, obviously hoppy, but the bitterness and dry finish aren’t overly astringent. Easy to drink and tasty, but a little simple.
