Cask at The Horniman at Hays. Pours dark amber with a creamy white head. Faint floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is bitter - mild roasty malt and floral/spice hop. Lot of bitter flavor in this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large sparkler’s white head atop a clear golden body. Soft foamy palate is gently mineral, floral. The whole thing is simple and straightforward, but aptly refreshing and balanced. Even though the aroma is a bit limited, cerealic pale malts feel crisp enough and the hops surf on them with natural brilliance.

Cask at Halfway House, Edinburgh. Deep golden. Grassy hops shine up a body consisting of buttery malt. Sweetish and fruity with medium body. Salty bitter finish. Fairly hoppy for a Broughton and with a fresh feel to it.

3 Judges. Aroma is caramel and hints of toffee malt but grassy hop dominated. Taste is more balanced caramalt with grassyness and hints of citrus at the end.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at Halfway House, Edinburgh. Gold, lasting beige head. It’s fine. Citrusy bitter with some tangerine. Good condition, decent hop on end and nice citrus flavours overall. Considering I had a whopping hangover, this was perfectly acceptable.

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.
