The High Cross, Leicester. Brass with a narrow white foam. Hay and caramel aroma. That house, aniseedy, Werthers boiled sweet character dominating with plenty of almond....and a creamy marshmallow note I’m enjoying, despite myself. Some apple pastry and cream. No hops as usual, but the wheat actually adds something to that syrupy, almond confectionery character here. Unmistakably Batemans, but better.
