3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Re-rate: Aitken dispense system at the fantastic Bow Bar in Edinburgh. Train canceled, so had an hour to make a quick beeline here and back the the station to catch the next train. Yellow gold, clean snowy white head. Rustic sweet candy hops. Sweet, full bodied malt, candy/garden bitterness, just a tiny hint of resin in the finish. Pleasant old fashioned sort of beer.

Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. Not too much to say - this was very similar to the others. A bit fizzier perhaps. Bored now.

A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tashi.
Golden brown colour with a thin white head. Balanced aroma of bitter grassy hops and good earthy malt. Similar flavour but somehow it doesn’t balance out. Dry finish is nice though. So so.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pale golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A biscuity malt, slightly wheaty, cereal nose, with a hint of citrusy hop. A dry taste, potent zesty flavour, loads of citrusy hops, followed by a balancing, smooth biscuity malt taste. The finish is dry and hoppy. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds Summer Beer Festival 2007, Heacham, Norfolk).

Gold with a white head. Sweet fruit and some malt in the aroma. Taste is hoppy and full of grapefruit. Rather too fizzy. Otherwise quite an engaging homemade quality.

Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy golden, airy head. Bready nose. Dryish with some hay-like hops. Bready chewy malt make up a medium body. A malt driven, very English beer with a short, dry salty finish.

Draught, Staggs Musselburgh. Attractive golden colour with a long lasting white head. Well hopped, with a nicely balanced maltiness, this is a good, palatable brew.
