3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Gold colour with faint white head. Initially an easy going blonde, light beer, biscuity fresh malt, then an oily, pleasant hop note, lemony and acidic. A bit ragged in opposing flavours, but nevertheless a decent bottled beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from Morrisons. Gold, thin white head and gentle condition. Initial buttery and faintly tart in the nose but becoming earthy with some solid hop resin emerging. Refreshingly dry and hoppy in the mouth with a gentle chalky and slightly buttery maltiness. Lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Old gold colour with a slim white head. Aroma is grapefruit and hops. Taste is a bit muted and disappointing; bordering on stale, bland with some slight bitterness. Unpleasant mouthfeel. Not good.

Decent looking beer. Pleasant taste. Slight bitterness. Quite sessionable: you could drink a few of these without really noticing. A rare example of an unmemorable Scottish beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Scottish one for beer 400. Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Unfortunately this may not have been the freshest sample judging by other’s ratings and my own experience of this as a quenching grapefruity hoppy draught beer. Pours amber. Smoky malty aroma with a bit of hop in the distance. Medium bodied with that smoky stale taste. Dryish finish. Oh well, I’ll try and find a fresher bottle.

Bottle @ Medelhavspärlan, Stockholm
Blonde with no head to speak of. Grapefruit and tropical aroma. Rich in rouge hops. Refreshing and might appeal to the opposite sex... (tic) Dry aftertaste.

Aroma, is somewhat grassy but nice. Body is alright, but could be better i recon. Lightly burnt matls and dryish hoppy finish.. Alright but not thier best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Moffat Wine Shop,Moffat (funnily enough)Scottish Borders,off theA74(M) Good golden colour tho’ head is disappointing, goes very quickly. Pleasant lightish aroma, good balance, same on the palate with hops just coming to the fore. A well made, thirst quenching brew, fuller bodied than Arran Blonde but otherwise similar in style.
