Hello,

I have a tiny problem concernig an adjective and and adverb.

Are both sentences possible?

It has a remarkably orange-like taste (the quality of the orange taste is remarkable)
It has a remarkable orange-like taste (the taste is remarkable and orange like)

Am I right?

Thank you very much for your help!

    Yes, both are possible.

    It has a remarkably orange-like taste = it tastes very orangy.

    It has a remarkable orange-like taste = its taste is in some way remarkable
