Dave Broom

Lightly oily with some plasticene/pear drop/green plums. This then shifts into drumskin, oiled leather and candlewax. Some soft stone fruit notes in time.
Sneaks into the mouth and seeps across the tongue. Mango. Broadens and sweetens in the mid-palate but then starts to fade rapidly.
Thin and short.
A little lacking in impact after such a big nose. Worth a look though.

Arthur Motley

Fruit salad chews, strawberries and lemon balm. A bit of fermenting grass and some background sourness to balance out the cuteness.
Soft, sweet and malty, with more strawberries.
Short, with a gentle oakiness and maybe a little smoke.
A session malt, pure and simple.
