tombyars (1328) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2011
First tasted this in the Glasgow University student union bar in April 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. One of the best looking ales around and reminded me of Thomas Hardy ale in colour. Crystal clear pale russet colour which gradually lightens up around the glass edge. Thin white head and good lacing. Creamy texture to the mouthfeel. Complex pale malts gives a crisp cider apple note with crystal malt in fruity evidence. Aromatic hops give a floral dusty aftertaste. Finish is slightly sweet and dry. An excellent session ale

On cask at Catacol Bay Hotel. A golden colour with a fair white head. Zesty lemon, orange some apple aroma. Caramel, citrusy flavours. Quite yeasty and dry also. Not overly bitter. Prefer this to the bottle.

Flavor is moderate sweet and peel bitter with a average duration, and peaty in that late finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090806]
