Summary
Refreshing hoppy bitterness is well balanced with the tropical fruit, lemon and malt flavour. An extremely healthy beer with just 13 calories per bottle and just 1g of carbs and 0.1g of sugars per 100ml. That is amongst the lowest I have seen. Winner of the bronze medal in the 2021 World Beer Awards. It is very impressive that they have made something so tasty without the calories. Good quality.

Summary
A very lightly flavoured and highly carbonated beer with aromas of pale malt, lemon (hint) and flower blossom. It has mild sweetness at first fading to a lightly bitter finish. Has only nine calories per 100ml which makes it great for weight watchers. Very lively and perhaps over carbonated. Fair quality.
