Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lightly oily with some plasticene/pear drop/green plums. This then shifts into drumskin, oiled leather and candlewax. Some soft stone fruit notes in time.
Palate: Sneaks into the mouth and seeps across the tongue. Mango. Broadens and sweetens in the mid-palate but then starts to fade rapidly.
Finish: Thin and short.
Comment: A little lacking in impact after such a big nose. Worth a look though.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Fruit salad chews, strawberries and lemon balm. A bit of fermenting grass and some background sourness to balance out the cuteness.
Palate: Soft, sweet and malty, with more strawberries.
Finish: Short, with a gentle oakiness and maybe a little smoke.
Comment: A session malt, pure and simple.
