TheJestersBeer (2136) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2011
500ml bottle, as Yellowhammer Summer Ale. Poirs a medium amber, with a white head. Hoppy, spicy aromas, spruce, grapefruit, cumin (!), coriander seeds. Dry, light to medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy taste, lots of citrusy hops, coriander seeds, malt, earth. Quite nice to pack this much flavour into a 4%ABV beer. It has the typical Scottish "rustique" touch, but there is a soapy hint in the hops that becomes a little too strong in the finish. (2011-08-14)

Spicy aroma with notes of pine and spruce. Medium body with moderate malty aroma. Best thing about this beer is the very good hops and the lasting bitter aftertaste.
