Intro: A 1 pint can with no canned on or best before date printed on it. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy and tropical mango, peach, apricot, pineapple and lemon zest.
Taste: Not what I was expecting given the aroma. Just pineapple from the tropical side along with citrus lemon and lime with perhaps some grassy, herbal and floral notes. Finish is lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Great tropical aromas which didn’t translate in the taste, although still quite nice and definitely refreshing. Just not as ‘juicy’ as I had hoped for given the wonderful aroma.
