2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a very murky and rather unattractive brakish colour. Palate is excellent and tending towards the syrupy. Aroma not hugely pronounced and not piney or citrusy or highly tropical but towards the sweeter candy side. Taste is the same, with some mild astringency towards the end. Low carbonation. Not a great Kernel to be honest.
