Hazy amber, small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and fresh cut grass. Loads of tropical fruit flavours, plenty of citrus, some pine. Moderate to strong bitter finish. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Fantastic!

overtheline (84) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2015
330ml bottle, pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Really struggled to get much of a nose from this beer, maybe very light fruit - melon - slight citrus and herbal notes. Sweet, light malt flavour giving way to a decent bitterish finish. Very subtle beer but has a nice balance going on. May be better accompanying food.

blackradioboy (106) - SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from Oddibins. A very subtle offering from the Scottish Border brewers. I don't get the fruity thing but the long finish makes it worthwhile. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a light white head. On the nose its pine, hops and a hint of pineapple. Refreshing taste of pine, fruit and a bit of citrus. Very nice indeed

JackMandarin (62) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Aldi’s Scottish Beer Festival range. Pours pale gold. Aroma has a fruity twang. Really nice nose-full of musky hops. Sweet tropical fruits. Bit vinous. Full mouthfeel. Restrained carbonation. Sweet on the taste. Bit biscuity. Bit dry. Medium bitterness that rolls on for a while. My first brew from Tempest since they changed their game up a bit. We’re off to a great start here!

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours golden with a white head. The aroma is mild pineapple. The taste is light spice with some bitter pine notes. Some caramel undertones. Light and refreshing. A slight metallic edge and a little honey too.

My favourite beer at the moment. Pale and hazy golden colour. Subtly sweet with slight citrusy bitterness. A complex, refreshing beer that looks great in glass - what more could you want of an evening?
