Damn it! I said to myself right at the start of this blogging process that I would be honest in my reviews... so here it is. Pogo from Wild Beer was a disappointment.

In the glass it looks enticing enough, with a hazy burnt orange colour and a lively amount of carbonation.

But then when you stick your nose in and expect a hit of the passion fruit, guava and orange that is advertised on the can it's all a little underwhelming. You can pick up traces of sweet tropical juice, but unexpectedly there's also a peppery aroma floating around.

The taste is.... well it's just a bit 'meh.'

Any initial fruit tang goes quickly, leaving a dry, slightly tart citrusy finish.

Everything else I've had from Wild Beer so far has been good so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here. If Pogo were to deliver what the brewer promised then this would be a great summer beer so when the sun is out I'll get myself a fresh can and give it another go.
