Golden, a bit hazy, and not very impressive head. A bit light and lacy. I like mine thick.

Smell was good. A bit piny and citrusy, but still some good malt. Nothing special, but solid.

Very smooth. Hard to place the individual tastes. Delirium seems an appropriate word for it.

Overall enjoyable. Again, nothing extraordinarily special in my opinion.

330ml bottle from The Cave bottle shop, Glasgow (£3.85):
Pale, golden amber colour with a massive, foamy white head on top that holds very well. Lively appearance with some nice lacing too.

Light hops & fruity notes that includes some cloves, spice, apple and some pineapple too. There is a touch of peach, some yeast and a nice helping of citrus on top of a well balanced aroma that also includes from grassy hops and light, summery notes.

Light fruits to begin consisting mainly of some grapes, apple and citrus notes with some lively hops and a touch of sugar too. There is a touch of banana and the alcohol content is well hidden.

Medium with a lively mouthfeel and strong carbonation. Smooth with nice, light spice and a hoppy feel with a subtle bitter finish.

Very lively and hoppy feel and some very nice light fruit notes. This one is very well carbonated and looks great with a very nice mouthfeel. The alcohol is very well hidden in this one and the beer is an easy one to drink.
