Aroma is sweet and malty, but somehow light. Appearance is a nice amber with an off white head. Taste is sweet and malty, almost like a light auld ale. Palate is a bit thick with sugar, but still drinkable.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Barley Mow Lamp Lighter Amber is a nice drinking uniquely delicious ale. Pours with a nice head that retains and clings to the glass as it goes down. Bright amber color. Aroma is fresh lemony citrus. Taste is pronounced lemon grass character with a malty aftertaste and unexpected bitterness more like a pale ale. The bitter does not detract from the pleasant flavors. Lamp Lighter Amber is interesting and flavorful through the whole pint (and you will want more.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap @ the Haymarket Bar in Edinburgh. I’m assuming that this version was brewed somewhere in Britain for cask but am struggling to find out where. Anyway, it pours opaque but with red hues and a nice head. The nose has ginger cake and biscuits perhaps. The taste is more of toffee, still some ginger, with an overall creaminess. The palate is medium bodied, with a tangy texture and a tangy finish. Overall, a good bitter (though it’s supposed to be an amber).
