Panama City Beach Fl - Chan’s Wine World (brought back by my wife) - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling light golden pour, crisp snow white head, light lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma with some floral accents. Nice bittersweet flavor with just the right amount of tanginess Some nectarines, a hint of saffron-like spiciness, some rye-like minty notes in the back end. Spritzy mouthfeel. Rather enjoyable.

Hazy straw colour, pillowy and fizzy white head. Quite a bit of sediment. Aroma is yeasty, orange and lemon, tropical fruit. A little leafy and spicy. Fairly light sticky body. Sweet peachy, almost wheat beer qualities, with a citrus finish. Very refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow straw color with a huge soapy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits and some grass. Very nice. Taste is a bit disappointing though: the bitterness is very mild and not anywhere near where I’d like it to be in an IPA. Flavours are quite balanced between malty sweetnes and hoppy bitterness. Grassy and floral. Thin in body and lively carbonation. Overall, it’s a 50/50 beer to me. Everything is great except for the flavour, which really laks in hops profile, bitternees, and fruity notes.

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy yellow with an average size long-lasting fluffy white head. Good lacing on the glass. Pleasant aroma of grassy hops, lightly sweet and yeasty along with biscuity malt, herbs and lemon. Flavour of grassy hops and yeast along with some tropical fruit, biscuity malt, herbs and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty enjoyable stuff.
