330mml can as part of the Beery Christmas 2017. Tasted on the 03/12/2017 at home. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, grass and hops. Taste is medium bitter and fruity but with a slightly metallic finish. Next one please!

Clear pale gold colour with medium white foam. Aromas sweet of hops and tropical fruits like passionfruit and pineapple but fairly light. Palate, light body, thin texture leaving hoppy finish. Taste, sweet and hoppy of grapefruits then turns into slight bitter grassy hops. Overall, not bad, very much like IPA with thiner mouthfeel.

Bière obtenue dans le calendrier de l'avent Beery Christmas de saveur Bière, jour 2. Je suis interpellé par la canette métallique qui est souvent associée à des bières de base. Le graphisme est néanmoins très joli.

Au service, je découvre une robe jaune dorée trouble et pâle. La mousse disparaît rapidement et la bière est d'ailleurs assez peu pétillante. Le nez est très parfumé, l'odeur est fraîche et rappelle les fruits exotiques, comme l'ananas, le fruit de la passion et la mangue. C'est très agréable et on peut déjà dire que la bière porte bien son titre de "tropical lager".

Au goût, on retrouve le même ensemble de parfums tropicaux, mais avec une plus forte présence d'agrumes, comme le pamplemousse et une belle amertume qui reste bien en bouche.

Globalement, c'est une bière rafraîchissante, bien houblonnée et fruitée, que je reboirai avec plaisir, idéalement à l'ombre d'un cocotier.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Poured cloudy with a fruity smell and slight citrus flavour. Far to hoppy for a larger. Not one I would return to.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2017 Can from BH advent calendar. Pours clear, carbonated yellow with a big, frothy head, the aroma is soapy, hoppy and pineapple. Taste is more grapefruit. Light, lagery with a bitter, slightly metallic after taste. Refreshing,

Small hint of fruit in the aroma and in the first few seconds in the mouth. Directly follow by rough bitter that stays long on the tong but not so much on the palate. Fresh beer yet not thirst quenching beer.

Can at home in Beer Hawk advent calendar. A lively pour and a very vibrant yellow in the glass. On the first sip I said, "this is lovely" and my wife showed no interest. This is a fun beer with lots of spiky hops and citrus fruit flavour. The flavours are surprisingly strong and I was glad that I only had one as they were starting to grate towards the end. Those huge flavours and the strong abv don't make this, in my opinion, sessionable, but this is a fun and frivolous beer that put a smile on my face.

Slightly cloudy in appearance, small head. Initial taste is citrusy but with the addition of bitterness that enters it reminds me of grapefruits. The end is bitter which does linger. Overall, quite refreshing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sam_uk93 (68) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2017
Pours a fairly clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is lime, orange, grapefruit, biscuit/bread. Taste is a nice big tropical hit up front, fairly sweet, leading to a nice malty middle, ending with a fair bitterness that lingers! Bloody lovely! Medium carbonation, medium to thin bodied.

Can from Beerhawk. Lovely tropical fruit aroma. Light body, fair hop bitterness, but the hops flavours aren't overdone. Tasty hoppy lager, light and fruity.
