2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Fosse. Veiled gold with a slim fine collar. Aroma of drains, hedges, TCP, hint of candy banana. Shrubby, herbal hints with dank and banana yeast; coriander (leaf) and parsley-like impressions; heavy mineral presence. Hard to believe it contains Nelson Sauvin. Too yeasty and phosphoric for my liking. A step backwards from Adnams.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cool bottle on the train on the way back from Manchester. Vague aroma of citrus and honey. Golden body, white head. Tropical fruit, banana, citrus, but strange metallic medicinal notes where some juicy flavours would pull it together. Watery texture. Unbalanced.
