2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sort of thanks to Ian. It pours clear golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is toasty, doughy, metallic, residual sweetness, candy, melon and some metallic notes. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, lemon, spice, metallic, orange sponge cake, melon and pear with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Perhaps a touch sweet, but ok.
