on-tap at Brixx, served in a tumbler

Pours a clear amber with an off-white head that quickly recedes to a ring. No lacing. Smell is extremely fruity: floral hops and caramel malt. Taste again is very fruity and sweet with ripe banana tones and not much malt. What malt can be picked out is of the English variety. Mouthfeel is watery, light-weight, and very low carb.

This beer is just too fruity and weak. If it had more malt presence and higher carb it could be saved. A boring beer. Hops are there providing aroma but very little bitterness leading to a watery feel. Quite disappointing as I remember this being an alright beer when sampled in London.
