3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very pale beer with a mild, floral aroma. It’s rather like a less in-your-face citra, I think. Quite mellow and would be perfect as a session beer on a sunny afternoon.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Golden shade with fluffy white head. Pillows of white grape, citrus and straw in the aroma. Orange pith, sherbet and a slightly sharp bitterness to the taste. Something a bit vegetal about it though. Quite light in body with above average carb. Started out well but went a bit astray, good though.
