On tap @ Duke’s Corner, Dundee. Pours golden with a proportionate head. The nose is of grass, lemon and possibly some herbs. The taste has lots of citrus pith. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a very clean finish. Overall good ale

Reminds me a bit of brewdog. Citrus to smell and taste. It’s dry wheaty aftertaste and not too harsh

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 10, 2012
10/05/2012 Open Baladin Roma (tap). Dorata, limpidissima, bel cappello di schiuma bianca morbida e molto persistente. Magnifico aroma agrumato, con note di malto, sentori terrosi ed erbacei, meravigliosa. In bocca conferma le ottime sensazioni aromatiche, è una birra dall’equilibrio sublime e dall’eleganza sopraffina. Malto e luppolo si sposano alla perfezione Corpo medio, grande beva, carbonazione soft. Magnifica, freschissima, da bere a litri, una delle migliori golden ale mai assaggiate.

Svesse (7764) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2012
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, apricots, biscuits, grass, toast and fresh citric hops emerging after a while. Fruity, malty taste with a crisp malt character, apricots, orange and a balanced bitterness in a finish with citric hops. Medium body, fairly dry. Well balanced and highly drinkable. Nice one.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2012
Keg at nobles. Golden with lame attempt at a head. Nice hoppy aroma, pine and tropical fruits with some caramel malt. Taste is subdued hops, light pine, caramel. Slightly sweet with a co2 prickle. Unexciting

Cloudy golden colour with small white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with caramel maltiness. Flavour is quite the same. Nice fruitiness and some bitterness too. Enjoyable.
