2.55/5  rDev -4.5%

500ml bottle

Pours with a light yellowy body, puffy head with some retention but it doesnt stay around too long

Smell, this might be off, strong hint of muskiness, some fruit and floral character

Taste is quite dry, quite crisp

Nothing much to talk about here

1.7/5  rDev -36.3%

This was quite horrible, dryish floral, passionfruit aroma, little on the palate, hints of passionfruit, hiints of flowers, and very watery texture, this wasn't good.

The label doesn't indicate whether this is an ale or lager but I'm guessing lager due to the crystal clear color and taste. This "refreshing beer" is flavored with passion fruit though if the label didn't say that I wouldn't have guessed. The color is a bright gold with a thin white head. The beer is aggressively effervescent like a pilsner; big bubbles rise consistently throughout drinking. The taste is initally like a pils or a dutch lager with that characteristic musty hop flavor. The finish is a little rough, lack of malt leaves that leafy hop flavor in your mouth.
Overall not bad but a big break from the ales we're used to from Youngs. Try it if you can find it, this bottle was brought from Scotland for me, I don't know of availability in the US.
