At first I couldn't identify the nose, but once I tasted it, I realized what it was....shampoo...but a nice one, maybe herbal essenses...but that taste is just soapy...but a nice soap...

Retaste 1/12 (bottling circa 2009-10):

Lightly fruity nose (basic apples/pears) and very malty as well, box of cereal. With significant petroleum-related stuff, eggs... falls near the "farty" category that I usually have issues with.  (Sorry, that's what I call it, 'cause I think people understand that phrase best).

 

Palate is rather thin, medium-sweet, oatmeal and cereal grains, malty. Something like cashews.

 

Kinda plain and vaguely nice.  C

 

Notes from a couple years earlier (not sure if I liked it more or if the vatting was that different): Nose of crisp apples and dry white whine.  Palate is refreshing and lightly fruity, sweet, with lemony hints.  Finish is medium-short, stumbles a little but doesn't fall.  An easy-drinker with a "fun" feel.  B
