3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Birmingham Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is citrus fruit with some watery melon and malt. The palate is weak bitter with a weak bodied watery palate and nothing much in the finish. Given the name of the beer I expected more and this beer disappointed. There were plenty of weak flavours but nothing strong enough to define the beer and certainly no hops!
