Other Notes: Malts – Extra Pale, Wheat, Caramalt, Flaked Barley and Oats. Hops – Citra, Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin
Brewer Description: (from can) Murky, thick, juicy and chewy. It’s like a packet of sherbet sweets drenched in tangy fruit layers cuddled by a comforting bready hug. Soft to drink with a slight creamy texture and medium dry finish. It’s tough to stop drinking it.

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 12th November 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: An extremely hazy light yellow colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving behind some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, ripe mango, pineapple, peach with light grass and citrus rind.
Taste: Lots of moderately sweet melon (melon ice cream) and mango with a moderate bitter citrus rind and peel finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and easy to drink. Strong melon ice cream flavour sweetness was balanced with the moderately bitter finish.
