Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, lemon grass and apple. Taste is sweet light malts, honey, biscuit, plum and apple. A bitter hop profile arrives fairly quickly and is balanced nicely with the maltiness. Appearance is a slightly hazy straw body with a fluffy pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.75l, shared with friends. Hazy golden color with medium creamy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, lemon, orange peel, some berries and hint of herbal hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, follows by refreshing fruity and yeasty acidity, spicy mouthfeel and well hidden alcohol level. Medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation in palate. Nice one, although it hasn’t completely met my high hopes...
