Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 8th November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark amber colour with a two finger off white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: A bit light but there’s citrus and tropical grapefruit, melon and peach with hints of caramel and pine.
Taste: Bitter grapefruit, citrus orange, pine, grass and caramel maltiness. The booziness was also actually quite obvious here.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but the malts overpowered the hops and it was surprisingly boozy.
