Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Yeasty,citrus leaves,a definite malt note,almost wheat biscuits but there is afresh cut tomato note here as well.
Palate: Coats the palate well and that malt note lingers.
Finish: Faintly aluminium.
Comment: An oddity for me,but worth getting to know better.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Felt,lemon ad strangely reminiscent of rabbit food. Some maturity. Malty. Water brings out yeast and in time a oily / meaty note.
Palate: Slick and tongue coating. Malt extract. Tongue covering. Nut shells and red fruits.
Finish: Tight with tomato and a hint of blood.
Comment: Rare steak anyone?
