Evil Twin Molotov Lite

Evil Twin Brewing has its origins in Denmark, but its beers are actually brewed at ten different breweries around the world. This beer was produced and bottled at Two Roads Brewing in Stratford, Connecticut. It is 8.5% ABV and the can says it is brewed with natural flavors, but neither the can nor their website say what flavors are added. I found an online comment by one of the brothers that run Evil Twin, and the natural flavors are mango and orange.

The beer pours honey golden, apricot, a bit hazy, with just over an inch of white foamy head. The aroma is musky, pine, a bit of dank, mango skins, citrus and melons. The taste follows the aromas melding musky pine with bright fruit. The finish is blisteringly bitter and dry, we’re talking quinine here. The alcohol is out front, you would think this was even higher ABV than it is. The beer drinks with a mix of smooth and carbonated. And this is the lite? (just kidding)
