3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at Chriso’s mid-week lasting 03/07/14. Firstly let me say that I really love the way the Yorkshire got behind the Toud de France Grand Depart. Fantastic stuff. Clouded ornge / yellow coloured pour with a small fleeting of white head. Aroma is petroleum, spicy tangerine, orange and some nice earthy straw notes. Flavour is grainy wheat, orange, juicy tangerine and some staling. Palate is semi-sweet, grainy on the tongue and a bit lack lustre.
