Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose is light and fruity -- apples and pears, with banana wisps.  Palate is very plain, and somewhat to alcohol-y.  Vague grainy/cereal flavors, like Corn Flakes maybe, along with a mild sugar sweetness.  There's an odd chemical note in the short finish.  Eh.

N: Caramel and a little smoke.
P: Comes on real watery, I think it's just caramel color overload.
F: Mouth feels coated with sugar, but there's no accompanying flavor.
The mid-palate is just totally missing.
