Tasting Notes

Nose

Light and airy. Lemon sorbet, sherbet, meringue, wet chalk, a sea breeze. Floral liners that your grandma puts in oak drawers.

Palate

All the American Oak up front – whipped cream with vanilla, lemon oils, cardamom, sawdust and funky, sticky hops. Decent medium weight.

Finish

A not unpleasant soapy texture, a zippy sensation on the middle of the tongue. The length is rather short, with final flavours of hops and barbecue rub.

Comment

I really enjoyed the flavour journey, but the length just wasn’t there.
