4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Marks & Spencer, Kilmarnock (£2.20)
Pours a cloudy amber with lovely contrasting white head.
Lots of fruitiness, mostly exotic, mango etc, Tastes like a mixed bag of kid’s sweets at times.
Not as hoppy as you would expect which is the only minus point.
Doesn’t quite feel as strong as 6.4% either which is good or bad depending on your personal preference.
