Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 12th January 2022, and with a best before date of 11th July 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: Poured a hazy soapy orange colour with a one and a half finger white head that had pretty good retention, while leaving lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: A little bit weak, but there’s grapefruit, citrus rind, melon, grass, pine, and hints of tropical stone fruit.
Taste: Moderately bitter, grapefruit, citrus rind, grass, melon, lemon, with light notes of lime.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
Overall: The aroma was weak and didn’t pop, and while the flavours were fine, it wasn’t among my favourites.
