Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA restrained clean nose. Very dry hints of apple here.. and not much more initially. Tastewise more on malt, but restrained.. low intensity. No intensity? :)
Rich Howardquite some bread on the nose, warm buttered pop-over or cinnamon bread, a touch of creme caramel, not over-sweet bread pudding, a touch of fruit... light tangerine? on the palate, one drop of water brought out more cinnamon and spices, and warm pear. [tasted blind for the 2010 Awards]
