mighty_meadow (304) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi (Scottish Ale Festival). Lovely grapefruit aroma on opening. Nice golden colour with fine white head. Taste is a bit disappointing at first but gradually the subtle fruit flavours start to come through. Nice carbonation but overall decent enough without being outstanding.
