UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 The Knott, Manchester. Pale lagery looks. Muted butter and odd sweet Strawberry Chewit and fern aroma. Rattle of overhead train, Tom waits rasping on the box, chlorophyll reinforcement. Sickly strange and medicinal with cherry, hay, and vanilla. Long sweet biscuit. Needs a bit of warming up. Dried apricot/hairy citrus. Not enough bite for me. Sweet and weird.
