Intro: A 500ml bottle, bottled on 25th February 2021, and poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A cloudy darkish maroon colour with a slight purple tint, and a just over two finger beige pinkish head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet cough medicine cherry, spritzy ginger ale, and notes of lemon zest.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, moderately sweet, plum, cherry, with a touch of pink guava and lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I really enjoyed the aroma and this fruity flavour combination worked for me. A good easy drinking variety of Jelly King.
