1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hazy, golden colour, pretty much no head - because of this I probably poured the bottle too enthusiastically to try and create something like a head and now my beer has so much sediment swimming in it, it actually looks like a snow globe or something. Aroma is citrus hops (lemon, orange, grapefruit), and heavy sulfur. Taste is light sweetness, and quite sour. Texture is very thin and watery, and I can actually feel all the sediment that is floating in it. This is a real disappointment. This is not drinkable.

Hazy, lively golden beer with a thin, frothy head. Citrus and hop in the aroma. Taste is mild hop and citrus/zesty and a real bitter, flowery backtaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Huge grapefruit aroma - very sharp and tangy. Subtle notes of honey and vine tomatoes.
Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow body with a thin white head. Lots of large yeast particles floating around. Light carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Very light and refreshing. Quite yeasty with flavours of zingy lemon and grapefruit notes and a soft herbal, bitter finish.
Palate: Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Light carbonation fizz.
Overall: Very thirst quenching and easy drinking. It tastes bright and fresh and the grapefruit aroma is excellent.
