Pours Golden, white bubbly head. Stale sweet citrus aroma, a little soap. Low carbonation. Caramel sweetness, rounded with nice bitterness. Tropical fruits in there. Lightness of touch in this beer which makes it very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasant surprise. Neat floral and citrus aroma. Knocked the ABV down to 4.4% though so makes for a slightly lighter feeling mouthful and beer in general. Up front fruity citrus, can’t pick out an individual note. Nice biscuit malt then a lingering medium bitter finish. Competent attempt at West Coast IPA but little too safe to be rated any higher.
Perhaps need to invest in some new labelling specialists though. Beer packaging looks a little staid. Just a thought.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Golden with a white head, fruity citrus aroma, malt, hops and pine in the taste. I think served a teeny bit colder it would have been amazing and I think it’s missing a tiny element of sweetness, but overall it’s pretty good.
