3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this at the Glenbryde Hotel, Seamill in June 1982. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thick creamy white head. Slight delicate aroma of apple blossom and dusty hops. Thin refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a buttery biscuit note with white grape fruit soft in the mouth. Old fashioned hop aromas give a dry dusty bitterness to the aftertaste. Finish has a bitter sweet balance with tart apple juice and lemony hops. An excellent session ale on hot summer days.
