BlackHaddock (4702) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
6th Mar 2015: first beer of a Scottish tasting evening I am having by my self. 500ml bottle: BBD 30th Sep 2015. As the name suggests this is a golden coloured beer, the deep pillow head a snow white affair with plenty of carbonation bubbles rising up to meet it through the brew. The nose is pale malty with a biscuit/bread aroma: taste more fruity with mild citrus notes blending in with the maltiness. Refreshing enough, with a clean, well carbonated feel to the palate. Decent without testing your nasal or taste buds too greatly.

jamestulloch (1918) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle from Bacco Wine. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grain, orange and straw. Flavour of biscuit and lemon. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Clean and easy drinking but very dull - tastes like a Lager.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours golden with some bubbles and a small amount of lace which sticks around. The nose has honey, cornflakes and a hint of lemon. The taste has more honey and cornflakes with a lemon finish. The palate is light to medium bodied with a light texture and a reasonably clean finish. Overall, a solid example of a golden ale.
