3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 06-07-07. Poured amber in colour with white head. Not as hoppy as I hoped, some caramel some hops with nice maltiness, this was a nice beer but lacking in authority a little.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear light golden ale covered by a large sparkler’s white head. Lightly flowery nose consisting of very soft malts that appear quite oily and vegetal in mouth. Rather dull palate, kinda stale and overly focusing on one-dimensional breadiness.

This was 4.2% and just called the reiver, no ipa. Excellent aroma, peachy, citrus and pale malts. Taste is similar but lacking in the peachyness due to the bittering hops taking it away.

Cask conditioned at the Halfway House, Edinburgh. Deep golden colour, moderate creamy head. Moderate aroma, nothing really stands out. The flavour is quite well balanced between the malts and hops. Moderate fruity notes, hoppy / dusty finish. Okay.
