Tasting Notes

Appearance

Clear bodied with slow rising bubbles with sudsy lines of lacing and a foamy white head.

Aroma

Spicy hops with a slight cedar note, with lots of lime and grapefruit citrus aromas.

Taste

A nice subtle citrus and tropical flavour with some orange breaking through, with a soft malt presence which brings down the sharpness of the hops.

Mouthfeel

Very clean, bright and light bodied with small amounts of carbonation.
