Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 9th April 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Light mango, mandarin peel and citrus zest.
Taste: Light flavours, citrus zest, mandarin peel, a touch of grains and a hint of stone fruit.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Even though it’s a Session IPA, light and refreshing, and while there’s nothing exactly wrong with the aroma and taste, I’d still expect it to be stronger and more prominent than what currently shows.
