Appearance: hazy medium gold with one fat finger of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: juicy tropical & stone fruits, citrus, bready caramel, resiny pine, light vanilla. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky medium bitter finish. (4/5)

If you’re gonna call your beer “Juicy AF” then as far as I’m concerned, it had bloody well better be juicy AF. … aaaand this is. Right, then – carry on. It’s slightly sweeter than I’d like, particularly in the finish, but that’s not a glaring problem since it’s more or less commensurate with the juiciness. And of course a sweet sticky finish just means you’re taking too long between sips, right? Though, the no fucking around ABV might make life interesting there. I could drink a pretty large number of these on a sunny patio, if given the chance. Well, until I fell over. (16/20)
