Pours very clear deep straw until the yeast sediment hazes things up. Thin film of white foam. Light hoppy, floral piney aromas - light mosaic tropical influence, light pineapple and also some more malty, sharper aromas. The taste is also very light on all accounts but very enjoyable indeed and at 5.2% it’s a perfect garden-beer. Good light to medium carbonation and a lightly bitter aftertaste. Nice light pale ale! dnicolaescu (2570) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 3, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL at 5,2% abv, courtesy of Maersk. Almost clear dark amber, off-white creamy head. Medium intensity aroma of canned mano and peaches, quite dank and a bit catty. The malts are very restrained. The taste is similar, light generic fruity maltiness, even dankier and cattier hops, clean and sharp zesty bitterness in the finish The body is so smooth and devoid of tannins, that it feel a bit watery at first. A very good and well-crafted ale. MrTipple (5000) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016

Very pleasant quencher. Alusmamuts (1984) - LATVIA - MAR 19, 2016
Light amber with small white head. Sweet malty aroma with some hoppy bitterness. Medium bitterness becoming stronger towards tongue root mixed with certain malty sweetness. Citrusy notes. Sweet malty aftertastes with stronger bitterness closer to the throat. kwik-lime (1939) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at Grey Horse, Kingston. Gorgeous tropical citrus aroma. Same tropical flavours burst through the beer although the slightly grainy body isn’t so much my thing. Lovely beer though.
