2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500ml from Waitrose. Pours a straw colour with a white head. A somewhat doughy aroma. Taste is mellow and quite average. Not really too much of a finish to it either. It was part of a selection pack and is okay but nothing more than that.
