Sweet malted barely, sugar cane rum (surprise surprise) and buttered popcorn followed by tart apple juice and light vanilla
It's a tropical fruit basket of pineapple, tango apple blast and golden syrup. The creamy surgary sweetness continues like cream soda and raw marshmallows. Then there's a dryness to it, like a straw hat (if that's even a flavour...)
A slight floral and zesty finish, wildflower and orange peels
