The Opinion

As someone who isn’t the biggest fan of overly sour beers, I was slightly concerned that this limonata pale might overdo it on the lemon, but I need’t have worried. The citrussy flavour is definitely there, with hints of grapefruit and orange peel, but not overwhelming, and the sour aftertaste is of just the right strength.

Light and refreshing, this is an excellent summer beer, with a gorgeous fruity aroma.
