Review and Tasting
Sampled on 23/08/2016
(sample can produced 04/Apr/16, BB 04/Oct/17) Cloudy, teak brown with bubbles creating broken thin ring of beige foam around inside of glass.
Raw pastry dough, lemon zest, cola cubes and light herbal rootiness.
Soft, less intense in flavour than some other colas with rooty notes and sweetness both dialed back. Well-balanced and rounded with attractive citrus notes.
Cola cubes and sarsaparilla. Off-putting lingering pastry dough sweetener note.
A cola for the health and environmentally couscous, but perhaps not for those who are used to and like the flavours of more mainstream colas. Finish lets this righteous cola down.
