2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is sweet pale malt, spice, ginger and leaf. The taste is dough, pithy citrus, spice, ginger and sweet pale malt with a very dry finish. Lightish body and fine carbonation. The ginger isn’t really as punchy as you’d expect with this name. Not much to it....
