Tasting notes
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.
7.2
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?
