500ml bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin, quickly passing white head. Big bubbles. Aromas are malty, not much else, just malty biscuits. Taste has a little bitterness, but mostly just malty sweetness. Didn’t really like it.

Fizzy golden beer with a thick foamy head. Light hoppy aroma. Sharp, bitter flavour of hop and malt with a very dry finish. Not bad but unmemorable.

Graham77 (205) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Better than the Arran Dark that i have just finished but not by much. Slightly overly bitter for the malt to be noticeable.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
From bottle, pos a light golden, Amber colour. Light floral aroma, moist fresh grassyness. Smooth bitter flavor, lingers appropriately for such a easy going ale.

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2012
500ml bottle from Sainsburys:
Light citrus and quite hoppy with some good floral notes and a sort of fruity, malt base backing this up.
Cloudy, golden amber colour with a thumb sized, creamy white head that slowly reduces to just under that and leaves some nice lacing.
Hoppy with some summer fruits in the mix and a fair amount of citrus thrown in too. There is some malts, a touch of bitterness and some light floral notes rounding things off.
Medium & smooth with a slightly bitterfeel and moderate carbonation.

A nice tasting pale ale, with a good mix of fruit and hops along with a nice, well balanced bitterness to it.
