ante (3374) - Stockholm, - JUN 4, 2011
Pours out in a clear golden colour with a low thick white head. Pale malts lemony and spicy hops in the aroma. Medium to light-bodied with notes of straw, lemon-zest grass and mild flowers with undertones of pale and biscuity malts. Crisp medium-bitter if a bit short finish of flowers, citric fruits and grass.

Cask conditioned at Telford’s Warehouse, Chester. Gold with white head. There is a light, citric note to this, some sharpness, a hint of grapefruit on a boiled cereal type body. A little mixed but fine in the end.

Rich amber colour with a white head. Refreshing taste, great for a hot day. Aroma is pleasant though very subtle.

iainr (2) - Aviemore, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 Bottle at home bought from brewery shop. Best before 30 Mar 17. Fresh hoppy pale ale with nice lasting bitterness. Heavily carbonated but works well. Has the signature fresh slightly farmy / sea air flavours and aroma I love about Black Isle beers.

500ml butelka z tesco. Bardzo ladna drobnopechezykowa piana, niezly lacing. Kolor złoty, klarowny. Aromat ubogi, kwaskowy, lekka trawa, "kiszonka", lekkie cytrusy. Smak kwaśny, lekka goryczka na drugim planie. Piwo lekkie, srednie wysycenie. Piwo przecietne, bez szalu.

500ml, brown bottle, tesco. Pours medium pale ale with a thin white head subsiding average fast. Scent is feet. Ale malt. Feet. Meh. Taste is great Scottish malt and ale yeast, just clean and correct. Finish is clean and smooth. Normal. Good.

s_r (125) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
Nez fleuri et caramélisé, robe tirant sur l’ambré. En bouche, l’amertume prend le dessus, sans laissé vraiment de place aux arômes. Assez moyen.

500 ml bottle @ Henderson’s, Edinburgh, rated on 2015-07-28
Clear golden orange beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, resin, peach and mango. Flavor has grapefruit, orange and malts. Palate is thin with strong carbonation and some bitterness. Finish has medium bitterness and feels a bit watery. Aftertaste has orange and grapefruit. Crisp and refreshing but too thin. Bonus for organic.
