Scopey (8072) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to The Fergus. It pours clear pale yellow-gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, earthy, straw, hay and some sweet apple & pear. The taste is crisp, apple, pear, mild fruity tartness, Appletizer, apple pie and touch of vanilla with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. A touch too sweet if truth be told, but drinks pretty easily.
