GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
500mL thanks to Ruben and my little sister! Fresh from Bamberg. Pours a sparkling deeper golden to amber. Thick, rocky, buttermilk foam. Very good retention and webby lacing. Nose is honey biscuit, lemon detergent, moving thankfully to walnuts and honey malt. Taste up front is heavy buttery biscuit, moving to rich amaretto and marzipan, some present sweet banana flambee, mild young coconut. Palate is nutty, spicy, fairly silky and rich. Very nice.
