Nose
Orangeade with a little grapefruit juice up front.
Palate
Does what it says on the label, brimful of sweet, juicy oranges and sharp, zesty grapefruit.
Finish
Dries a little but still sweet, with more Starburst-like fruit.
Comment
There's not much sign of beer in this cloudy orange confection but it's clean, fresh and better than spirit based alcopops. Perhaps there's a market among Pimms drinkers but it's not going to be of much interest to readers of this magazine.

Nose
Grapefruit, funnily enough, with a cloudy Irn Bru colour.
Palate
More grapefruit, and some juicy orange.
Finish
Quite a short, savoury finish, which is welcome after the sweet citrus. After it fades, it leaves a sweet taste in your mouth like Fanta (or your country's equivalent).
Comment
Only 2.5% per cent? A breakfast beer! Or perhaps a beer for the alco-poppers.
