Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light,grassy. Lemon balm,dry hay. Honeycomb. Refreshing.
Palate: Sweet but lively. Quite frisky. A spice burst tickling the tongue. Ginger alewith a lemon rind.
Finish: Crisp,soothing on sweet aniseed notes.
Comment: Appetising,straightforward. Deceptively robust on the tongue. Water cuts the edges and makes the mouthfeel creamier. Another uplifter.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lifted,with bready/yeasty notes. Malt extract. A distinct maltiness as well as hazelnut dryness though there's a creamy and rounded quality. Brass and turned earth
Palate: Sweet and malty with a lightly perfumed character. Sage,preserved lemon. Chewy feel and light grip. This also loses some character with water.
Finish: Bread and butter pudding.
Comment: Decently balanced.
