Appearance: slightly hazy pale straw with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: guava and tropical fruit, crackery malt, lemon zest. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter. (7/10) Light body tending slightly thin, lively carbonation, lightly tart slightly astringent finish. (3/5)

Not bad: lots of juicy tropical fruit on the front end, and a reasonably clean crackery malt through the mid, but tending slightly thin and astringent in the finish. Ultimately a bit watery. (14/20)
