Pours a golden champagne colour, fair haze throughout. Head is white, webbed out and dissipates to leave a thin rim. Looks a bit dull and flat.

Smells lovely, however. Light floating mosaic hops all over that giving apple and pear, lemon and tangy passionfruit. Nice touch of malty sweetness adds a complement although without fully grounding it. Hopefully palate has more grounding but as a smell it's lovely.

Taste has that sweet fruitiness throughout, with a touch of peach and packham pear notes upfront with a touch of caramel malt. Hops turn bitter midway through, giving a big grapefruit character to the finish. Nice grounding with bitterness, possibly a bit much this time - felt like there could have been more of that tangy flavour.

Body is a little thin, flat and lacking in texture. Not bad but not great.

Decently refreshing drop. Bit underwhelming but stylistically good.
