Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/05/2011
Hazy, light green with few rising bubbles.
Confectioner's lemon-lime with pasteurised lemon juice aromas.
Dry quinine with sherbet-like effervescence, subdued lemon oil and dried lemon peel.
Quinine bitterness on the finish - more bitter than many bitter lemons.
Appealing lemon sharpness and underlying quinine bitterness on a well-balanced palate.
