2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Medium-high hops, piney, citrus, Medium-light apricot. No Malt.
Appearance: Clear, yellow body. Small white head, fair retention.
Flavour: Medium piney, citrus. Medium-light sweetness, medium-light bitterness.Very dry, almost astringent finish. Crisp
Mouthfeel: High carbonation. Light body
Overall: Easy drinking, but the aroma promises more than the beer delivers. A nice beer, but the carbonation is too high, causing more burps than sips. The astringency is off-putting.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Danie!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours sunny yellow with thin white head. Aroma is the best part of this beer- juicy tropical fruit galore. You get pineapple, mango, peach, grapefruit, mandarin- you name it. Combined with a fresh, citrus hoppy aroma as well. Taste is lovely and light, definitely a summer session ale, so not exactly a great match to my stormy autumn night, but goes nicely with my hot curry. Hop character is quite understated. Sweet refreshing finish with light bitterness, lively carbonation. Refreshing, but not something to savor.

Good session ale. Good flavour -I think it is single-hopped with Galaxy from memory- and good thing they keep it nice and light: my impression of Galaxy is that it can get a bit harsh on its own. Quite sweet at the end.

This 330ml bottle was dated best before 7 October 2015 and was poured into a pint glass. The beer poured a hazy pale yellow with a one finger big bubble head that disappears fairly quickly. It had excellent aromas! Very tropical fruit forward especially mango, pineapple, orange, peach and apricot. Like the nose, the taste is of tropical fruits. Mainly mango and peach with a slight bitter lemon finish. It was light bodied, crisp, medium carbonation and refreshing. Overall this was an a good beer, very easy to drink and great for a hot summers day.

330ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a big head, large foam bubbles that die quickly. Hoppy fresh nose. Sweet taste, slight bitterness, present hops, a bit fruity, well balanced. Light and refreshing, but still not weak. Can recommend!

Unfortunately I’m coming off an imperial stout. Pours slightly hazy gold with a moderate white head. Fruity hops (pineapple, mango) aroma. Flavor is a clean maltiness with mango notes. Light body and a clean finish. First sip was watery, but once the stout was cleaned out, it was much more on the quaffable side.
