Nose: I'm having this on my sunny balcony with an ice cube and the nose matches this weather perfectly: lightly floral with orchard fruit, especially pear and green apple. Very malty and fresh.

Taste: Initially quite sweet but with some zing to it. Becomes somewhat bitter/tannic but never overbalanced. Mostly thick, sweet malt, a touch grassy. Fresh and medium-bodied with surprising viscosity for its age.

Finish: Fades rather quickly with an echo of malt and oak tannins. Nothing unpleasant about it, though.

Balance: This is what I might call top-heavy: vibrant on the nose and palate entry, but lacking on the bottom half. Still a real pleasure to drink.
