AshtonMcCobb (2378) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2012
On tap @ Ghillie Dhu, Edinburgh. Pours golden with a decent head. The nose has pale malt, some honey and just a hint of fruit, perhaps apples. The taste has more of the same but the malt is definitely more prominent. The palate has a medium body and texture with a not quite clean finish. Overall, decent but not worth getting another.
