cask at Cloisters. good lacing. citrus. much maltier than I was expecting for a so called pale ale - more IPA territory. pink grapefruit balanced by the malt. bitter finish. not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Re-rating on cask at the Cumberland. Much more generous and more-ish. Previous rating on 28/01/14 7+3+7+4+14=3.5 Bottle sample thanks to Lewis. Appearance - golden, bubbles very gentle and delicate, some decent lacing. Nose - pink grapefruit, some malt backbone. Taste - more pink grapefruit, some resin, still decent malt in the background. Palate - medium bodied with an oily texture and a fresh finish. Overall - quite challenging but the challenge leads into a reward.

Bottle from Cornelius (I seem to be on the same shopping route as jamestulloch!). Pours crystal golden with small white head. Lovely unctuous smell of papaya, tropical fruit and orange. Medium body, good carbonation and quite bitter throughout. Doesn't give as much on the tongue as the nose suggests but underlying citrus and hops come through and gave a tingle to the lips. Very drinkable.

jamestulloch (1048) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Completely clear golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of white bread, peach and citrus. Flavour of soft citrus with a faint bitterness in the finish. Thin body with a light, oily texture. Soft carbonation. Simple and easy drinking.

Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma has slightly cheesy hops, biscuit, little buttery. Taste has citrus, floral, cheese, biscuit and a tiny bit butter again. Medium to thin with a dry finish. Ok

Yellow pour with fair head. Really nice orange characteristics on the nose, bit of spice. Bitterness is fairly prominent throughout, which is nice on the end, but could maybe let the malt come thru a bit more. Good, light body and medium CO2.

Pours a pale colour, taste is hoppy, dry and fruity. One of the better blonde ales I’ve had

Fruity aroma of citrus and sweet peaches but also a bit of sweaty cheese too. Rich, thick texture. Sweet, fruity hop taste with a drying hoppy finish.
