Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Fudgy, raisiny sweetness, green apples and fresh cut parsnips. An antiseptic, floor polish.
Palate: A good, oily and unchillfiltered texture, with jam, fruit and nut toffee, a little creosote and some orange.
Finish: Some sweet medical character, like Savlon.
Comment: Rather subdued on the nose, but a lovely, texture malt to drink.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Distinctly odd. A child's coat pocket; strawberry chewits and melted toffee. Hugely sweet, butterscotch.
Palate: A tight start, but a flabby centre. Stewed red fruit and caramel. Strangely dilute.
Finish: Disappears in a haze of saccharine sweetness.
Comment: Front-loaded, clumsy and forced. Bunna's good enough on its own.
