500ml bottle from Arran Brewery shop. Golden colour with thin white head. Aroma is biscuity and floral. Tastes like a cross between an IPA and a golden ale. Caramel, biscuit and something floral with a dry, bitter citrus finish. Better than I thought it would be.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Big caramel and pine aroma with a grassy undertone.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Average carbonation. Light lacing.
Taste: Grassy with light flavours of biscuit and citrus. Taste seems a bit diluted somehow. Bitter, slightly sour, metallic finish. The 5.5% ABV is well hidden.
Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Not as punchy or interesting as I was hoping for. It doesn’t really taste like an IPA, more like a strong Golden Ale.
