A golden, straw coloured bitter, brewed with Cascade hops adding a flinty, grapefruit aroma that is deliciously refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 Im told a new recipe! Lovely balance! Previous rating 7+4+7+4+16=3.8 50cl bottle. Pours an amber colour with steady bubbles and a good head. The nose has pine and some hay. The taste is of pale malt and hay and there is a pine and nettle finish. The palate has medium structure, a creamy texture and a refreshing finish. Overall, this is quite a stunning session ale.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
@ Dagda Bar. Amber, bright. The aroma is very toasty. Soft body with some caramel and a light honeyish toastiness. Competent beer, but boring.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2010
@ Dagda, Edinburgh. Thankfully not over-sparkled. Clear amber with stable head. Brisk herbal hops in the subtle aroma. Some toffee. Nutty, sweet palate. The flavors are toffee, bland brown bread, sweet with no discernible hop character. Is boring as hell.

sunevdj (3130) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle at Aviemore YH. Pours a clearish golden with a white head. Sweet with heavy aromas of citric hops. Also some malt aromas. Tiny hints of metals towards the end. Medium to high carbonation. Medium bodied. Long, quite bitter finish with more hops aromas. Hints of diacetyl in the very late finish?

patrick767 (3528) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2010
bottle from the Morag hostel bar in St. Augustus - Pours hazy yellow with a big, fluffy white head. It has an aroma of mild bready malt and grapefruit accented hops. The flavor is of mild hops, grapefruit, and bread, and is fairly sweet. Its okay but the body is a little light and it could use more hop character.

hophop (27) - SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Another terrible example from this ramshackle brewery. Id heard theyd made some progress but this was another disaster. Hazy golden colour, gassy head that collapsed immediately and screaming diacetl nose. Flavour dominated by diacetyl obscuring any hop character. Two mouthfulls then down the drain Im afraid.
