Bottle at home.
Very fruity and almost chewy. A tad sweeter than other citra beers I’ve had (good thing for me!)
Best Mallinsons beer Ive had so far.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Light grapefruit and mango aroma. Very subtle soapy notes.
Appearance: Hazy, pale golden body with light yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head that slowly fades. Lively carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Big grapefruit and lemon flavours - this is really juicy and refreshing. Biscuity malt in the background. Lingering bitter finish.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation.
Overall: A fruity, delicious beer - I could happily drink several of these. For me, Citra is the best hop to use for single-hop beers.
