Light hazy tan, bubbly head. Light body, generally refreshing but perhaps too much caramel and not enough hop. Disappointing, from a brewery whose products I normally enjoy.

Golden with a white head. Taste was OK but a bit sharp towards the end. Oily texture, a little bit thin. OK but not amazing.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright lemon body, loose white dish of a head. Nose of hobnobs crumbled into unlevened bread. Big crushed biscuit packed initial taste, clean but malty and weird. Crumble of body leaves little room for a seeping hop vine and lightish lemon linger.
Cask, Bon Accord, Glasgow
