3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.
Looks: Translucent straw amber colour; Near zero head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with zero carbonation.
Aroma: Quite fragrant Ale malt, with light passion fruits, apricots, mangoes, floral, sugar, pine, light resins, biscuits and light lemon.
Taste: Mid sweet fair Ale malt, with grapefruits, faint apricots, floral, light molasses, light pine, moderate resins, dry biscuits, strong lemon oil, strong bitter hops and fresh grass.
Body: Close to light body. Watery and slightly oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Fairly good Ale maltyness in a very thin background. Strong grapefruit and citrus oil dominate, plus fair floral, moderate sweetness, biscuits, strong lemon and fresh grass to round. Very simple but quite nice!
Hoppiness: Light passion fruits, apricots, mangoes, floral, pine, light resins, and light lemon in nose. Grapefruits, faint apricots, floral, light pine, resins, strong citrus oil and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet finish.
After Taste: Dry. Oily citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: I was expecting some real tropical fruity aroma from this one, but it was underwhelming and weak, yet its citrus hop taste is oily and fresh, strong and effective. Decent enough overall, but I rather have a NZ Pale Ale from New Zealand instead.
