Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 19th November 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a cloudy copper orange colour with some tiny suspended sediment and a three finger puffy off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: A bit mild but there’s mango, sweet tangerine and lemon.
Taste: Sweet juicy tangerine and peach with light bitter orange pith which ended a bit abruptly.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light bodied with moderate spritzy carbonation.
Overall: This was not bad with the exception of the abrupt ending of the taste.
