Intro: A 250ml bottle with a best before date of 23rd January 2019. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass.
Appearance: A clear copper colour with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly but settles to a thin but replenishing layer. No lacing.
Aroma: Sweet-ish plum, apple juice, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar.
Taste: Sweet sweet apple, apple juice, brown sugar and maybe some herbal notes.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This was overly sweet for me, even though it was easy to drink.
