2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle as a gift, from Ocado. Weakish golden yellow and well carbonated like ginger ale. Pleasant tropical fruit aroma but very one dimensional. Like a soft drink. And it tastes like a soft drink: sweet with only a hint of spicy bitterness in the back of the throat. Watery body, extremely carbonated. Doesn’t taste like a beer. Its pleasant enough but as un-beer-like as a beer can get.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, ogar. Pours in cristal clear pale body with no head. Aroma has sweet lemon tones, little bit like pineapple in the background, malty. Taste has refreshing high lemon sweetness, little bit like berries, probably what bacuri would taste like? Bitterness is on the low side. Body is medium, high carbonation, refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow without head. Aroma is cooked corn, honey, tropic fruit (apparently bacuri?), sweet. Taste is a little paper, slight fresh sourness, some fruity sweetness, good if there were no paper. Pretty watery with some more sourness in the finish. Some fine bubbled carbonation. Ok actually, but not as fruity as I thought.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at GJBF 2016. This pale is a bright gold and made with the Bacuri fruit which gives it a very unique aroma: a sharply tart candyish quality and I then a very like notes. The taste isn’t as nice as the nose, some fruit syrup, Bacuri candy, diacetyl (?) but alright. I wish the taste had lived up to the aroma.

330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 16, courtesy of Simon. Many thanks. Pours clear golden yellow, minimal head. Lovely fruity aroma, which I assume is the Bacuri fruit. Taste is light and fresh with a great Bacuri presence. Clean, fruity and refreshing.
