4.09/5  rDev +15.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

330ml can.
L: Very hazy with a couple of larger pieces of sediment. Golden yellow with an off-white head that leaves many rings and spots of lacing.
S: Soft, fruity, orange blossom.
T: Each mouthful starts tart & bitter but mellows as the orange blossom arrives.
F: Medium/light body with lively carbonation and a bitter, almost astringent, finish.
O: Hugely enjoyable lager that mimics a pale ale. Blends the fresh and crisp characteristics of a lager with the dry, hoppy, refreshing characteristics of a pale ale. The dry hopping is very evident. Would drink plenty of this, particularly if I found it on tap anywhere.

3.43/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy yellow with high, soapy head.

Smell is citrusy with hints of yeast and some vegetable stock and little bit of coriander.

Taste is fairly clean and crisp with a nice breadiness and some floral hops. The vegetable stock makes a return from the nose.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a good lager, easy to drink and pretty clean.

L- Quite pale yellow, distinctly hazy. Pours with 1.5Cm pure white head that is holding up well.
S- I could smell it at arms length the moment I popped the can, unusual. Up close I get 'tropical fruits', some form of cross between lychee and mandarin orange. Unsure how this might translate into Taste...
T- It's hoppy/bitter, and that builds for some seconds on the first mouthful. After swallowing, the roof of my mouth is 'zinging' so it's impactful.
F- Dry and relatively bitter, this is a quite seriously bitter and refreshing beer. But it has enough underlying subtle richness that I find it well balanced. It's well hopped but not a blunt 'hop-bomb'.
O- Bought from a London Tesco on a '3 for £5.25' offer. 330ml, BB: April 2019.

I gave my own impressions above, but it's interesting to see the brewery describe this beer thus: 'HAZE LAGER. A beautifully pale yellow, unfiltered, crisp lager with wonderful tones of passion fruit and citrus courtesy of the Australian Galaxy aroma hops. The high alpha acid contents of everyone’s favourite, Magnum, gives a well-balanced bitterness to the brew, which compliments the fine malt body and the great yeast character. Quite simply a lager with refreshing, fruity tones.'
