2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Part of the Sainsburys World Series. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Weak aroma, subtle doughy malts. Medium sweet flavor with a kind of odd character. Like honey and corn or something. Or perhaps the unholy marriage of mint and lemon? Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, some bread, weird fruit, dough, faint crispy grass. OK.

dark gold. Strange aroma - rotten grass springs to mind. Grass, fruits. Not all that appealing.
