Bottle (330ml from Good Spirits Co. Glasgow, £4):
Deep amber colour with a large head that is about an inch and a bit tall with a foamy texture and a creamy white head on top. The beer is clear and shows some tiny bubbles rising to the surface and head retention is good too.

Light pine bitterness and hops with a few floral notes but overall it was pretty subdued and nothing really grabbed your attention. Once it opened up a little then some grapefruit and citrus notes made an appearance along with some faint and sweet malts plus a hint of fruit in the background.

Nice balance of bitter hops, grapefruit and citrus complimenting the tropical fruit flavours very well indeed. A stronger malt and caramel taste than the nose suggested and a nice mix of fruits, notably orange at the end with a nice bitter finish.

A medium body and moderate carbonation with a nice bitter and citrus kick along with a slightly chewy mouthfeel. The finish was bitter, crisp and surprisingly refreshing with only a touch of alcohol coming through right at the death.

Nice and well balanced beer with enjoy going for it to make it a pleasant beer that I would have again. I would say that the smell could have been stronger and that it started to fade a little towards the end when the alcohol became slightly more noticeable but it was still a good beer.
