3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at RRBF. Pours pale straw with a small fizzy white head. Nose shows some light tartness, hay, a bit of funk, lemon. Flavor is similar—could use a bit more tartness/acidity on the palate, but overall I was slightly impressed with this offering from Highland.
