Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 2nd March 2020, and a freshest flavour before date of 22nd May 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy darkish orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet mandarin, orange, with notes of mango, pineapple and grass.
Taste: Orange, biscuit, malty, with notes of tropical fruit, and a lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate spritzy carbonation.
Overall: Light and refreshing for a hot day. Maltiness is a bit strong and the fruit kind of gets lost in this.
