330ml can. Heavily hopped ( dry hopped?) lager from London. Hops include Vic Secret, Mosaic, Chinook & Denali. Carbonation is low and bitterness is high for a lager. A refreshing, summertime, lager/APA hybrid. Not bad.

NB. I drank this 16 mths after its best before date. Much more pine than tropical fruit.

Can. Hazy straw. Thin frothy head.
Aroma of tropical fruits. Pineapple and grapefruit.
Tastes similar. Somewhat grainy.
Quite soft.
A summer drink best served cold.

L - Light yellow, very slightly hazy. Pours with thin white head that clears quite quickly to lacing.
S - Smells like sparkling grapefruit juice. This does not bode well I fear.
T - Sparkling grapefruit juice wasn't much wrong. It's bizaare to me a beer tasting like this rather than tasting at all like a beer.
F - Although it's highly citrus it is not quite as brutally tart as some other beers I've had recently with this kind hop-driven flavour profile. I won't have a problem finishishing it, it is extrememly refreshing...
O - ... but I won't be buying it again. It is unbalanced to me. Perhaps it might have a place 'On your hols' something very hot. But this is October in London and it's currently 9C.

Canned in a presumably crafty craft can

Aroma is tangerine
tastes like vague citrus
adequate

Can poured into tulip glass.

Received in an advent calendar. I’m not a huge fan of lagers or indeed anything particularly “tropical” in my beers so assumed that I’d hate this. Actually pleasantly surprised. Crisp, refreshing and flavoursome without overdoing the standard pineapple/mango/guava thing. Not really a beer for December but enjoyable nonetheless. Cheers!
