3.5/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A 330ml can with a BB of June 2018, so it's a little out of date. ABV is stated as 4.5%. Acquired a while back from a webshop. I like the mermaid on the label....

A: Poured into a tulip. Can-conditioned. A hazy orange-amber colour with light carbonation and tons of floating sediment. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of subdued fruity hops with hints of melon, vague white grape, white fruits, mild hay, fruity ale yeast, light earthiness and subtle caramel malt. OK.

T: Tastes of mild fruity hops with notes of white fruits, melon, faint white grape, hay, fruity ale yeast, earthiness, grain and faint caramel malt. Slightly sweet, followed by a delicate, understated bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with soft carbonation and decent body. Lightly astringent. Aftertaste of fruity, floral hops, mild white fruit, earthiness, ale yeast and subtle malt.

O: Alright but probably past its best. Looks OK, while the aroma and flavour showcase light, fruity hop notes underpinned by earthy ale yeast and subtle caramel malt. Decent body. Probably more vibrant when fresher. A decent effort - worth sampling.
