Nice sessionable beverage. Lack of alcohol is made up by a consistant tasty beverage. Nice malt and hops combine to give a not over the top beer but enjoyable and consistent. Slightly fruit and a nice malt backbone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lovely orange colour with a persistent bead and vestiges of white lace running down the side of the glass. The aroma was a little stifled by the serving temperature but light fruitiness seems to be the theme: orange marmalade, dried apricots and a niff of floral hibiscus. In the mouth there is a load of piquant bubbling and carbonation sting and then mellow fruit that is characterful without being sweet and lastingly tasty.
Thank you thank you thank you for an eminently sessionable beer. Loving the lower alcohol.
