3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Frank’s (Ramnuts) tasting - 06/11/12 #11879.
Pours a hazed light amber with a thin off white head.
Nose is toffee fudge, dates, prunes, dark fruits, sugars, little pinch of wood.
Taste very similar to nose, slightly tarte in the execution.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter finish.
Decent enough - but not a patch on some of the ’good’ exampls of the older vintages I’ve tried.
