3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught) Colour of coca-cola, little head, but very lacey. Nice perfumed nose, biscuit, caramel or Sachertorte, but fresher. Medicinal, bit piney flavour. Sweet aftertaste, like a cola gum. Bit thinnish structure, but the body is there. Alcohol too, even when 6.5 isn't all that high. Better than feared, but far from great.

A Mes rate. Bottle at mums on Boxing Day.
