My rating: 3
My rating: 3.72
My rating: 3.5

Intro: A 500ml can, with a best before end date of 3rd August 2023. Poured into what I guess is a water glass (being all that I could find at the hotel late at night).
Appearance: A clear copper amber colour with a one finger off white head that had decent retention, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Lychee, flavoured tea, with floral and light citrus notes.
Taste: Flavoured fruit tea, lychee, lemon zest, citrus rind, a touch herbal, floral, caramel malty, lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An interesting Pale Ale as the lychee was front and centre. But as long as you enjoy lychee, it did provide some good aroma and flavours along with the Columbus hop.
