500ml bottle. Pours a pale golden yellow with a slowly fading white head. Aroma is of citrus floral hops, biscuit malt, some caramel, fruity with mild grassy notes. Taste is the same as aroma with some mild bitterness. A medium body on the palate with some mild carbonation. Finish is sweet biscuit malt, mild grassy notes, fruity with some yeast followed by some good citrus floral hops for balance. Overall a well balanced, enjoyable brew for the style. A solid showing.

A: This poured a cloudy straw with a little white head and sediment.
S: It smelled like sugary orange.
T: It tasted like sugary orange and cantaloupe. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was a little thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was much better than Kipling. The scent wasn't great, but the taste was enjoyable and unique. The body was good, and the finish was pretty smooth, so it was easy to drink. Nothing special, but a good enough brew.

Lovely fruity citrus smell. Uber refreshing, light citrus flavour. Thin mouthfeel with very little alcohol taste despite being 7.2%. Really nice after taste although hardly any astringency. Bloody lovely beer. Reminds me of a summers day. More please!
