lots of flavours coming through - beautifully balanced!

aroma: bready orange/grapefruit/pine

taste: light brown sugar, orange, orange peel, orange candy, grapefruit, bready malt, slight raisins and spice with a hint of smokiness. Loved the taste and balance of this beer.

very enjoyable, achieving it's aims of a sweet and bitter balance.

355ml can. Poured into snifter. A: Looked like a
Hefeweizen, amber very cloudy, medium head that
hung around quite a while, had floaters, lots of
lacing. S: Lemon, cascade hop, hint of diacetyl.
T: Citrus fruits and wheat, yeasty, sweeter than a
pale ale, fruitier than a hefeweizen. M: Creamy
texture, minimal carbonation, very smooth. O: As
a fan of Pale Ales and a reluctant Weizenbier
drinker I’d say it combined the best of both beers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours clear amber with a ring of white bubbles. On the nose I get sweet, bready malt with tropical citrus and apples, plus an herbal hop presence. The taste follows the nose but has a wider array of fruit: blood orange, apple, strawberry, apricot, along with that same sweet bread malt. It doesn't taste like any cream ale I've ever had, nor does it fit into any known category, but man is it tasty. Finishes slightly bitter with a medium body and good level of carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

355ml Can from Crystal Palace Wetherspoons, Glasgow (£2.49):
Caramel amber in colour with a thumb-sized, foamy white head that seems quite creamy once it settles. Some lacing & good retention.

Sweet malts & some subdued hops on the nose although the smell is definitely a very light on with only a few faint floral notes, some light caramel and even fainter still, some sweet fruits too.

Sweet with some malts that hint at caramel, some sweet fruits and a touch of bitterness coming through. There is some further caramel & biscuit flavours with a few lager hops.

Creamy but with a thinner body than I was expecting, it was probably light medium at best but it was exceptionally smooth and quite easy to drink with low carbonation and a wet finish.

Average but drinkable with the sweet and creamy feel being a highlight for me. The main problem was that both the taste & the smell seemed too light and basic for me. I'll stick with Bengali Tiger over this one every time.
