Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 12th May 2016. Poured into a Moonzen teku glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear copper colour with a two finger off white head that dissipated quickly but left nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Sweet caramel and bready malts with some pineapple, apple, grapefruit and pine.
Taste: Mainly pine with light biscuit malt and light caramel. Citrus is there but fairly restrained. Finish is lightly bitter and spicy.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with mid to high prickly carbonation.
Overall: This was just ok for me. Everything was just quite light and the flavours felt lacking.
