    SMWS tasting notes: A uniquely American sweetness at first nosing. Root beer floats, Emmental cheese, honey-roast sweet potato, cocoa powder, buttermilk icing and
    warming paprika. A total delight! Further notes of dried sage, spicy fennel sausage, red chilli jam and wild strawberry. A vivid fructose juiciness. With water we got malt extract richness, cooking oils, coconut water, chocolate porter beer and soft, earthy wood spices. The neat palate initially offered us pumpernickel bread with treacle, spiced dark fruit chutneys, sweet navy rum, mulled plum wine, spiced orange peel and lightly smoked jasmine. With water we found fir liqueur, natural tar extracts, herbal cough mixtures, mint essence, lemon jelly, verbena,
    wormwood and myrtle. Further notes of Thai basil, chilli powder and maraschino juices.
