Review and Tasting
Sampled on 09/08/2012
Clear, mid golden amber with polished golden glints.
Lemon citrus zest, honey, sweet oloroso, sticky hot-cross-bun and poached pear.
Slightly sweet, well rounded, honeyed, biscuity malt with gentle spice.
Burnt macaroon-like notes to a honeyed malty finish with gentle toasted spicy oak.
All too quaffable and easy.
