3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 330ml. Burnished bronze with a slender white foam. Unusual and enticing aroma like Fruit Salad chews, shiny red apple, grenadine syrup and hop pollen. Flavour floral and stewed with hints of peach, pine, papaya and fizzing pineapple moving into a mellow smoked husk finish. Smoked almond linger. Decent. Good malts. Reminds me of a 3.8% Mallinsons single hop YPA. But not as good.
