3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy brown beer with a thick, bubbly head. Aroma is rich and fruity though you can also smell the strength of it. Fortunately given the strength it’s one to savour than to guzzle anyway as it’s really quite sweet. Not especially sickly, the fruit flavours are quite natural rather than it being a sugary mess, but there’s a proper tanginess to it when you first have a swig. Quite light in spite of everything though.
