Nomhab (16) - - JUN 26, 2012
Fat, The White Heart Inn, Edinburgh. Ljus, klar färg. Doft av obduktion (!). Tunn smak som inte dröjer kvar, ingen större beska. Gör inte mycket väsen av sig.

Vladivostok (416) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Pale amber in colour. Slight floral aroma. Rather dry with a kind of sour bitterness. Disappointing.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
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.

allmyvinyl (9020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Cask at Carters. Pours clear pale amber with a thin white head. Aromas of light sweet malt, light lemon. Taste is watery, faint lemony finish. Inoffensive

Toomio (475) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Ei kovin IPA. Aika helppo ja vähähumalainen. Eliittikokouksen jälkeinen rauhoittumiskalja.

sound67 (604) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
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.

MalcolmTucker (921) - SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Cask at the stable bar. Sour vegetable aroma and flavour. Presumably this is aimed at the deuchars ipa crowds.
