Member Ratings and Notes

Nose of bright melons, fruity. Juicyfruit gum. Hints of Italian salad dressing. And something oily and somewhat suspect.


Palate is peachy, really. Super-fruity, moderately sweet. Yum, very good. Maybe a tinge of soap somewhere in here, but it's not bothering me. The oily thing from the nose is here and not so great when I notice it, but the rest of what's here is quite enjoyable... although it gets a little flatter after time, with less fruit and a sort of uninteresting plain spice thing. Water brings out that oily eh-ish aspect, don't add.


This doesn't do a huge amount, but I do like the few things it does. 

n:  Reminds be of cut, dying weeds.  Sort of a Saturday gardening smell.  Nail polish remover.  Actually that all sounds horrible but the nose is decent.

p:  Hey wazzup!  Thick and floral.  Great finish.  Sort of a sensory attack so don't feel bad about adding a tad of water.  1 dimensional but well done.  B/B+

Adding water made me notice apricots that were being burned out before. 
N: Chocolate and lemongrass.
P: Punchy but....just punchy (ahem).  Lemony sweet water.
F: Got some wood in the finish, but then just fire.
Not to much interesting going on here but certainly a nice light malt.
