Bottle shared with McTapps. Just a simple, average and very uninspiring ale.Some hops in the aroma and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Will not try this one again.

Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish floral lemon zest aftertaste with grassy herbal notes. Nice and highly drinkable. Nicely filled out and mellowed by not being filtered.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Gordon and MacPhail, Elgin. Pours a cloudy golden with steady bubbles and a good head. The nose has grapefruit and a gentle oatmeal note. The taste is more of the oatcakes and grapefruit. The palate is light to medium in body and texture with a thirst-quenching and balanced finish. Overall, I enjoyed this though I was slightly biased because I had an incredible thirst so the hoppiness hit the mark.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Feb 2010, drank Mar 09. Poured into a pint sized vase shaped glass.
Looked like a good pilsner, but with a bigger head. A deep golden yellow colour, with bubbles rising up to the well formed and impressive head.
Very little aroma for me, not even any hop esters or malts. The label claims three different types of hops are used, obviously none of them are for aroma, they don’t name them.
The hops don’t come into the taste much either, there is a hint of citrus fruits and the beer is fairly dry and crisp, but not hoppy in any shape or form, unless my tastebuds have left me again.
Drinkable and un-offensive, is about the best I can say about it. No heavy body or richness to it, just a warm day beer. It wasn’t as good as it looked.
