4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from ales by mail after reading review from Leigh good stuff
Hazy mud blonde with fluffy white head collapsing to lacing mandarin cheesecake aroma, medium carbonation and body, no sign of any booze, peaches and mandarins and a chalky bitterness with a long dry fruity apricot finish. Perfectly balanced and enjoyable.
