1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Came to the Glenfinnan Hotel table as a frothy welcoming pint. After a dissapointing sniff of the a sent aroma the first sip tasted of a beer that should have been sent back. Acidic sour taste with no malt or hop. I wonder about the state of the pipes that delivered it. So many reviewers have tasted the same that I am pursue died it must be the brewery. Worst pint for three years. What an accolade.

Pale amber in colour. Slight floral aroma. Rather dry with a kind of sour bitterness. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The White Hart, Edinburgh.
Copper pour with a thin, off-white head. The aroma has woody, sawdust and perfumed sandalwood notes to it. The taste is largely dry with woody character and some sweeter, soapy, floral hop (no surprise from a GK beer). Pretty dull.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ei kovin IPA. Aika helppo ja vähähumalainen. Eliittikokouksen jälkeinen rauhoittumiskalja.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Maker: Belhaven (Greene King), Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland ***
Beer: Belhaven IPA (cask, at The Advocate, Edinburgh) ***
Style: Bitter ***
ALC.VOL.: 4.0% ***
Coulour: Clear yellow amber, medium, creamy off-white head. ***
Nose: Very mild lemon and hop aroma. ***
Texture: Medium body, creamy. Minimal carbonation. ***
Taste: Sweetish toffee malt and lemon, light floral notes at first. Lemony note towards the middle, not bitter, with malty base. Floral finish, still lemony, with smooth malty aftertaste. ***
Impressions: Unsubtle but super-smooth bitter with a pleasantly lemony note. Not really an IPA though. Easy, but good session ale. Kind of like Deuchards IPA, which, likewise, is actually a bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the stable bar. Sour vegetable aroma and flavour. Presumably this is aimed at the deuchars ipa crowds.
