Nose
Lifted,with bready/yeasty notes. Malt extract. A distinct maltiness as well as hazelnut dryness though there's a creamy and rounded quality. Brass and turned earth
Palate
Sweet and malty with a lightly perfumed character. Sage,preserved lemon. Chewy feel and light grip. This also loses some character with water.
Finish
Bread and butter pudding.
Comment
Decently balanced.

Nose
Light,grassy. Lemon balm,dry hay. Honeycomb. Refreshing.
Palate
Sweet but lively. Quite frisky. A spice burst tickling the tongue. Ginger ale with a lemon rind.
Finish
Crisp,soothing on sweet aniseed notes.
Comment
Appetising,straightforward. Deceptively robust on the tongue. Water cuts the edges and makes the mouthfeel creamier. Another uplifter.
