3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! As ’St. Austell Clouded Yellow’. Amber orange, highly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, Danish pastry, honey, sweet apple pie. Body is very light, quite frothy, spritzy. Taste is lemongrass, lemon drizzle cake, sodawater and honey. Quite nice – just a pity about the thin fizzy body. Better than expected. (3.3)
