Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 30th June 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden yellow orange colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention and left nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Very nice tangy and citrusy grapefruit and orange zest with hints of tropical mango plus a touch of breadiness.
Taste: Good balance of citrus and tropical fruitiness with grapefruit, mandarin sweetness, pineapple and lightly under ripe mango with a touch of bread and cracker on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: More body than expected, but other than that, this was a very nice and refreshing beer that is definitely sessionable.
