On keg at Cloisters. A golden beer with a decent foamy white head. Smells hoppy. Aromas of fruit, malt and a little yeast. Fruity, caramel flavours. A little bitter with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Also nice in a bottle but great on keg.

4/5 i mörkhet. Friskt och väldigt humlig i doften. Oljig, besk och lite torr i smaken men ändå fyllig med en skum besk eftersmak.

A pleasant pale ale, with the usual caramel aromas. The hopping was a bit lighter than in a typical american pale ale. I would have preferred a bit more carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown with a hint of ashes. Small proteinic head. Grand round mouthfeel with really bready dominance together with some marmelade tones and lots of hops. A solid scottish ale, nothing spectacular but very allround and very likeable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a dark golden liquid with a medium to small foam that quickly lay down. Fruity and fresh smell, with ripe fruit and caramel. Similar taste, fairly mild. Fairly lean mouthfeel with a medium thick body and low amount of carbonation. An easy to drink English pale ale that doesnt stand out.
