Magic Rock What Are The Odds

Brewery: Magic Rock Brewing
Country: England

Brewer Description: (from website) Double dry-hopped for double the flavour with mango and citrus on the nose, followed by a big tropically fruity, full mouthfeel. Wheat in the mash aids haze and flavour, while fermentation with London Fog carries a big fruity aroma and a huge juicy finish.

Intro: A 440ml can with a best before date of 2nd July 2021. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with an almost two finger white head that had good retention and left lots of lacing.
Aroma: Orange, citrus zest, peach, mango, with notes of pine resin.
Taste: Tropical fruit sweetness, mango, peach, honeydew melon, lightly bitter, orange zest, citrus rind, with a lasting bittersweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Good fruit aroma and flavours, but despite there being some bitter notes, the sweetness cuts through it easily, and it was perhaps a little too sweet for me in the end.
