Brewer Description: (from can) When we were asked to brew the official GBG Beer Week beer for 2017, it was like suddenly understanding something… A Moment of Clarity. How could we go wrong? We are only following in the footsteps of one of Sweden’s best ever beers.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 21st March 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left some sticky lacing.
Aroma: Mandarin sweetness, grapefruit pith, pineapple, pine and hints of floral notes.
Taste: Floral, perfume-y, grassy, apricot with touches of grapefruit pith.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was perhaps too floral and perfume-y for my liking.
