Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 19th April 2016. Poured into a Moonzen teku glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear golden copper colour with a one finger slightly off white head that dissipates quickly leaving only a little lacing.
Aroma: Bready and biscuit malt with a hint of caramel, fruity pineapple and apricot.
Taste: A strong bready malt backbone with some nice light apricot, grapefruit, pine and grass.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s easy to drink and nice and fruity. A decent beer but nothing spectacular.
