3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A hazy amber pour with a billowing white head; intesely floral aroma with some pine and tropical fruit; light and refreshing in the mouth, with an amazingly complex taste - pinapple, grapefruit and gooseberry, barley and bread dough; and a dry, slightly spicy, bitterness before a sweet, biscuity, finish. Rather good stuff.
