Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Bright golden/honey color. Soft, delicate malty aromas are cradled by scents of lemongrass, sage, thyme. Taste features animated, deep flavors of malted milk ball, cocoa, dark caramel. The aftertaste has an undercurrent of saltiness that sums up the experience well. (Apr 2016)
Aromas are almost incense-like, with heather, honey and a fruity softness- notes of pineapple, toast and cereal round out the nose. A bit syrupy on the palate, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur. Full bodied and full of flavor, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish.
