Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark golden orange colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Orange juice, lemon, pine and caramel with hints of mango.
Taste: Bittersweet tangy citrus fruit, orange rind, biscuit malt, toffee and hints of honey.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and enjoyable to drink. Second favourite to Mosaic, and much better than the Cascade and Simcoe versions.
