Bottle from Fergus on London Hickster Invasion Day. Thanks! Bottled 20/01/14. Pours a pale hazy straw colour. Big aroma on pouring - light spicy yeastiness, a little pepper, lemon. Light body, medium carbonation. Lemon and a soapy perfume character are the main flavours. there is a bit of spice too, but very subtle. There’s some apple too. Not much in the way of lychee. So, so.
