JohnCook101 (535) - - NOV 12, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours light cloudy golden with a thin head. Light floral citrus aroma. Light sweetness followed my a moderate to heavy citrus hops. The finish is bitter, but not too strong, and lasts without being so heavy you miss out on any flavour on the next sip. Moderate carbonation, not too gassy like a few of Mallinson’s offerings. Refreshing, light and Hoppy. I like this quite a lot.
