1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Pars Supermarket, Hagley Road, Birmingham. Having previously found and rated the Istak Lemon - which wasn’t allowed as it was both non-alcoholic and fruit flavoured (in hindsight that’s fair enough as otherwise we’ll have Vimto added to the site) I was ’pleased’ to find the malt variety. Poured it into a BrewDog stem glass in the hope it would improve the experience. This is reddish brown and quite dark - darker than apple juice - and flat, of course. Smells exactly like the dustbin lorries that collect the overripe fruit from Leicester market. They’ve somehow bottled that experience. Tastes worse than I remember Laziza tasting (Lebanon’s very own malt beverage) - an initial blast of overly sweet malt and can’t-quite-place-it stale fruitiness - then gone before I’ve swallowed. Why do I put myself through this? It brings up 80 countries - that’s why.
