Draught. I really did not take to this ale at all. It might have been the draught lines though.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from CostCutters, Ullapool. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is strong buttery diacetyl, straw and dough. The taste is straw, orange peel, buttered white bread, pear skin, soap and light corn, with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Strong diacetyl dominates this beer.... Not great.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask, Blackfriars, Inverness. Murkyish amber looks with a minimal white head. Some vague fruit and hop in the nose and flavour but too much diacetyl spoiled things totally for me. Poor, uninspiring beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Wine Cellars, Lutterworth. Burnished with a slim white collar. Perfumed hop aroma hinting at pineapple jelly and violets over a pale attractively nutty malt base. Clean and slightly soapy with a good tangy interplay of hops, yeast, malt. Flowery with an earthy background and bitter kick to finish. Good. And earns a double bonus point for the correctly punctuated label.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half pint, cask at my pilgrimage to Leslie’s Bar. Nitro creamy, white head blanketing the glass. Copper coloured body. Smell of malty sweetness and mild fruits. Malt-fruity taste with weight on hop resin. Fine bitter end on the swallow. Not watered in anyway (Edinburgh, 28.11.2010).

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Hogs Back Brewery shop. Pours a golden yellow colour with a thin white head. Real skunky aroma, the taste is sweet with a salty citrus mouthfeel, with a dry finish. Very disappointed by this beer,
