2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in August 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thick white head. Light aroma of meadowsweet and dusty hay. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a light digestive biscuit note with fruity citric flavours of gooseberry and kiwi. Dusty hop resins give an aromatic dry bitter aftertaste. Good malt and hop balance in the well rounded finish. A good session ale for hot summer days.

Cask, handpull at the Malt and Hops?, Edinburgh, with Craig, Jan, Charlotte & Loz, 29.10.10 Pours amber with a big white fluffy head. The aroma isnít up too much. Taste is low-med bitterness, bit too much confectionary going on here for me, too sweet lacking bite and identity. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Coastguard Inn, St Margarets bay, Kent. Gold with white head. Sharp and hoppy, hurrah, nicely dry with a slightly thinnish malt, hopefully the end of a bad run. Fresh and lasting bitterness. Decent.
