Light golden, honey coloured. Not much in way of aroma. Taste is quite hoppy initially leading onto slightly sweet orange. Slightly sweeter finish. Bit of dry biscuit. Finishes dry. Nice.

tombyars (1400) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2011
First tasted this at the Waterside Inn, Seamill in July 2000. Cask hanpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Expecting a malty nose but got English floral hops instead. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a tanin flavour with raisin fruit evident. Hop resins give a dry edge to the aftertaste. Finish is well balanced and bitteer sweet. Reminded me of Timothy Taylor Landlord? A good session ale.

On cask at the Ormidale Hotel, Arran. A deep golden ale with a thin white head. Some caramel, yeasty aromas and mild fruity hop notes. Tastes fresh and clean with nice hop bitterness that lingers. Nicely dry and bitter.
