3.38/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

500ml can purchased at Carwyn Cellars. Best before 29/05/2019. Poured into a tulip.
Look: Pours a clear golden amber, with about 1-2 cm of fluffy white head with tight little bubbles. Slowly falls back to a thin film. Looks good.
Smell: nose is a little sweet, a bit fruity. Peach, mango and a bit of citrus. There is a little bit of heat coming through the back end here.
Taste: tastes similar to the nose. fruity up front, mango and citrus. A little bit of sweet malt comes through, but not too much. A bit of booze in there too.
Feel: It is a surprisingly heavy beer, too heavy really. Bitterness at the end, but not as much as I would have expected. Some length.
Overall: Its not a bad beer, but it is too heavy and too boozy

3.68/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours pale gold, clear, short lived head
Aromas of some fruit, lychee, quite sweet.
Taste is more stone fruit, sweet lychee, pineapple, and quite light overall. Bitterness very muted for style. The can notes pine, I dont note it.
And then it falls to bits... it’s lightweight, oily, low carbonation and just doesn’t fit, with an alcohol burn as it warms. That’s a really difficult mouthfeel to describe!
It could have been great as XPA and IPAs big brother but it doesn’t quite hit the mark...
