jmgreenuk (5838) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 27, 2012
Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. Poured a rather lifeless greenish yellow colour with no head at all. The aroma is kiwi and some more kiwi! The flavour is bitter and not surprisingly with kiwi notes. There is some sourness and spice on the palate. I didnt quite get the Sauvignon Blanc im afraid. A nice try that really doesn’t hit the mark.
