Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 1st May 2018. Poured into a MBCC 2018 taster glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark orange colour with a one finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, pine, peach, mandarin, sweet marmalade and a touch of bitter grapefruit peel.
Taste: Sweet, peach, pineapple, malt, honey, with light spice, light herbal and light bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Aromas were good, but on the whole, perhaps too sweet for my liking. The light bitterness at the end was not enough to balance the sweetness from the malt.
