Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 5th July 2019. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Floral and guava, grapefruit rind and peel, pine and light biscuit.
Taste: Lightly sweet, guava, grapefruit, lemon, pine, grass and a touch of biscuit.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice sweet guava notes although the citrus kept pushing to overpower it. But still, nice and easy to drink.
