A 16.9 fl oz. bottle with no bottled on or best by date, poured into a Moonzen teku glass.

Appearance: It poured a cloudy golden colour with a slightly less than two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Citrus orange, mandarin and a bit of peel with hints of mango.

Taste: Juicy with orange, melon and mango dominating. There are also some light herbal and floral notes, a hint of lemon zest and is lightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and highly carbonated.

Overall: Another great lager from Jack’s Abby. Much like Hoponius Union, it is light tasty and easy to drink.
