Intro: A one pint can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit, citrus rind and peel, orange, mango and passion fruit.
Taste: Lightly bitter and sweet, orange peel and rind, grapefruit, melon, cantaloupe with hints of mango, grass and biscuit malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Quite nice and tasty, but I think I would prefer it even more if it was less sweet.
