Intro: A 473ml can, canned on 8th February 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A darkish but very orange colour with a one finger off white head that dissipated quickly to nothing and left very sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Cordial like. Tangerine forward, apricot, grapefruit zest, with maybe notes of cranberry.
Taste: Sweet and sour, tart, tangerine, candied grapefruit, nectarine, and a hint of cranberry if any.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not a complex beer, but the aroma and flavours do work for me. It went down really easy and was enjoyable. A thirst quencher for a hot day.
