2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden, very pale, watery-looking body with a small, white, short-lived head that leaves some lacing. Fairly strong aroma that is quite crisp, with notes of pale malts, citrus, caramel and faint hints of tropical fruits. In the moderate flavours the fruity notes are more of the generic kind, without any tropical notes. The taste is light to moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Not too bad.
