3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A beautiful amber colour, little head scatters the top. very fruity nose, summer fruits, and citrus. great balance and citrus palate, and smooth finish, it could do with being longer, the hoppiness, just falls flat after a few seconds, and the malts shine. (i am definitely more of a hoppy person than malts, but i do appreciate the style).
