Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 8th August 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A not very appetising murky dark orange brownish green colour with a one finger white head that dissipated immediately to nothing and left only very sparse lacing. Lots of little black sediment floaties too.
Aroma: Vanilla, milky smoothie, and mango, with a touch of mandarin.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, milky, vanilla, soda, fruity, mango, mandarin, although a little watery.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I must admit I felt a little cheated when I found out this was a low alcohol beer with only 0.3% ABV, especially since this was like really expensive soda. The pour and look was absolutely terrible as it just looked really unappetising. The aroma was like a nice smoothie, but then taste went back to something poor again, as other than the vanilla, the fruit flavours were really light/watery, and just didn’t work for me.
