Cask handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham. Golden with a short head. A very floral, fruity, apricot scent. Hardly any carbonation. Well balanced in the mouth with a sweet end, without being sickly. Fruity and nice.

Bottle from trade with minutemat, thanks! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. It’s got a real fruity nose with mango, lime and mandarin. Taste is even more fruity with added passion fruit, pineapple and sweet orange. Great stuff!

MrHangover (4559) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden beer with a nice, firm and stable white head on top. Aroma has wheaty notes, citrussy and stone fruits, some banana and has an overall incredibly inviting aroma to it. Flavor is soft, light bitter, refreshing and very easy and mellow on the tongue and palate. Balance is great in this one, longlasting finish which is never out of balance or too bitter or sweet. Carbonation is soft and gentle. Great stuff!! Like drinking kashmir!!

Pours murky golden with medium top, quickly diminishes, full hoppy aroma upfront, very fresh and slightly sour at the end. Taste is medium bodied and sweet upfront and slightly sour evolving to a nice, dry finish. Nice one. Want another one :)
