Intro: A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 5th June 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Unripe mango, pineapple, melon, citrusy orange rind with hints of honey and lemon tea.
Taste: Light tropical fruit, light citrus orange with hints of herbal and floral elements here and there.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I enjoyed the aroma, but the taste was a little light and the herbal and floral elements was just ok.
