What’s Brewing 2016 day 1. Hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, pineapple, orange. Taste is medium bitter with a low grapefruit and pineapple note. Good, but a bit weak and thin. anstei (2670) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle from Beers’n’more. Pours slightly cloudy golden with a low to medium head. Aroma is floral and slightly citric, hints of soap. Medium is rather light, with a soft carbonation. Light sweetness and low bitterness too, but good malt flavours still. Probably aims to be refreshing, but is a bit too flat for that. Nice. minutemat (6133) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016

Bottle at home in London - picked up at Offie & Toffee. Pours unclear gold with a creamy, white head. Great aroma, with notes of peach, apricot, tangerine. Light to medium sweet flavour with bright, juicy citrus notes, understated pale malt sugars, balancing piney bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance in the finish, with nice pithy citrus, melon, nectarine, tangerine. Fresh and vibrant. Typically stellar.
