Bottle from Sainsburys. Light gold pour with a foamy white head. Good carbonation. Aromas of citrus, peaches, baked apples. A very fruity aroma. Unfortunately the taste didnít live up to the interesting smells eminating from the glass. Floral tasting with hints of grapefruit. Quite a bitter mouthfeel. Finishes hoppy and bitter.
