I must admit...
I am glad I didnt dump this product upon first tasting!
I had it with a super hearty and delicious stew my wife made...not a good complimentary drink.
However, with something sweet - this drink is much better!
I wish the label had a more prominent BARLEY WINE logo...
To quote Monty Python's Instant Record Collection... "Warning...Larks Vomit" - or ' "Crunchy Frog"...
An interesting drink to say the least...ProsT fruende!
