Intro: A 440ml can with a best before date of 23rd January 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Quite weak, but there’s lemon zest, pear, pineapple, tea, pine with a light floral character.
Taste: Mild flavours, citrus rind, zest, tea, grass, pine with hints of mango. Finish is lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and taste were really quite weak. There were hints of juice, but that’s about it, just a hint. Flavours and aroma just weren’t strong enough.
