T: Is it simply the power of suggestion or is that truly a beer infused maltiness. Either way, its spirit/grain led, mainly malt and a tad rough [spiceness], and develops - nowhere. Although initially malty sweet its light, bitter/sour spirit that resides.
F: Not much here either. More of the same with light waxy vanillas. Coming back to the dregs in the glass, there are lots of toasted, herbal, botanical notes.
C: Its understandable this would be compared to [Beckham’s] Haig, they will both inevitably be competing in similar ‘in-crowd’ markets. This is way ok for a 3yo grain, you can’t really expect much - but this does have character, a beery one and the nose alone promises lots for more mature versions. A curious one.
