500ml bottle shared at home. Pours hazy, cloudy even, yellow with a thin white head. Biscuit and flowery aromas, honey. Tastes boozier than many beers stronger than this. Light body and thin texture. no noticeable hop bitterness. OK, but a bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Honey and unripe tropical fruit notes. Subtle hint of sauvignon blanc.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a huge white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Nice sticky lacing.
Taste: The fruity flavours are verging on sour. Quite tangy. Noticeable boozy taste for its 6% ABV.
Palate: Medium body with a dry, mouth-puckering mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation fizz.
Overall: Average at best. No uniqueness of flavour. In a word: dull.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
AROMA: bread, hay, barnyard, dough
APPEARANCE: golden, clear, head frothy white then quickly minimal
TASTE: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, not balanced well
PALATE: medium body, sticky, lively, long mildly bitter aftertaste
OVERALL: not bad, but the sweetness does not match well with the bitterness, refreshing at first, but with a lingering sweet sticky taste.
