From gas pour, comes as a hazy honey-amber colour with a skim of white head. Aromas of apricot flesh, golden queen peaches and malt. This smells rather nice with plenty of enticing fruity esters. Upon tasting it gives loads of prickly carbonation, is fresh and light but lacks a bit of body typical of the style. Flavours of caramels and some orchard fruit but the real star of this beer is the smell.

Restrained aroma in a yellow pour. Flavour is very light - even for the strength. Consequently, I think other brews of the type do it better.

It smells hoppy, bitter, flowery. The taste is bitter, flowery, less malty, hoppy, nice! Good balanced for a Low Alcoholic beer!

I’d never have noticed this was a low alcohol one. Just a lovely fruity American Pale Ale. Nice and cloudy reddish amber, great healthy appearance with a thin creamy head. The most excellent aroma of peaches and grapefruit, flavour a bit more on the citrus and grassy side, but still tremendously pleasant. I’d be giving the same rating had it been an APA.

Bloody light beer. I initially excluded this from the 18 pack tasting tray though reneged for volume and the sake of completion. Yet the titillating dance of Chinook through Cascade keeps you distracted from the complete lack of fermentation and the outright insult to the craft. An academic exercise to prove one point, has proven another on the side - it’s possible to make a light beer strangely moreish. There are rumours of an 8.5% Imperial version coming on the hand pull for the cold winter nights...
